Fresh Produce Reefer Container Inspection Claims

We have represented shippers – including their underwriters- of fresh produce stowed in reefer containers relating to claims for damages arising out of the failure of the reefers’ refrigeration systems, as well as where the temperature settings of the reefers are not properly adjusted.

Where necessary, we arrange for an inspection of the depot from which containers are drawn to assess whether “good practise” is in place and to determine at what stage of transit the damage to the cargo in question occurred and what the cause of the damage was.
