Interlegal defended the Client’s rights on cargo acceptance

02.06.16

A forwarding company applied to Interlegal due to carrier agent’s rejection in cargo acceptance.

 

The agent grounded the cargo retention by the forwarder’s indebtedness for demurrage and detention of containers carried under other Bills of Lading. The buyer’s rejection to accept cargo due to improper quality resulted in container demurrage.

 

Having studied the cargo transportation terms and having determined status of the forwarding company acting as the booking party, Interlegal experts prepared well-reasoned grounds under which the carrier’s agent ordered to release cargo.

 

Karyna Gorovayaand Olena Ptashenchuk, Interlegal lawyers, worked upon the case.
