Any claims for full cases of damages caused by the carrier must be noted on the bill of lading at the time of delivery. All damage claims should be accompanied with a copy of the bill of lading noting how many cases were damaged. If you are able to provide us with digital photographs of the damaged cases and/or goods; it will assist in expediting your claim.

It is very important that upon delivery of goods you take a few extra minutes and note any and all visible damage and shortages on the bill of lading.

When the customer chooses their own freight carrier it will be the customer's responsibility to file a claim with that carrier for all shortages and damages that were noted upon delivery.

You will be contacted as necessary to provide more information regarding the details of your claim. If it is not necessary to contact you, a credit memo will be sent to you as soon as possible. The credit memo will list all credit(s) issued and instructions on what to do with your damaged merchandise.
