In an upcoming webinar organised by SC&RA in the USA, Robert Moore, NationsBuilder Insurance Services Inc (NBIS) special projects manager, and Kate Lasky, NBIS associate corporate attorney, will focus on bills of lading.
The webinar will also focus on other emerging transportation issues, including dealing with the upstream liability of parties when the carrier does not have proper workers compensation insurance for subcontracted or brokered load drivers.
When was the last time that you looked at your bill of lading - are you protected from the impact of the Exel Transportation ruling? Much of the language transportation companies currently use in their contracts between carriers and shippers is outdated. How does Exel Transport compromise your expectation of limits of liability under your bill of lading? If your BOL limits your liability to less than $100,000 but you are carrying a load worth $7 million, does your BOL protect you, or does the Master Service Agreement take precedence over your BOL?
Moore and Lasky will also discuss shipper and carrier liability to drivers and third parties for improperly loaded freight, and how to potentially shift this liability through contracts. Further, they will help you identify key issues to help your company mitigate exposure for loss to cargo.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday 28 October 2015 at noon, Eastern USA Standard Time. It is free for any employee with a member company and US$49 for non-members. For more information contact Jillian Williams, firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: +1 (703) 698-0291.
