Damage in Transit
All packing is in accordance with carrier requirements. For your protection, before accepting any shipment, examine it carefully. If there is evidence of damage or a shortage, insist that the delivering carrier make a suitable notation to that effect on the freight bill before you sign it. If, after receipt of shipment, concealed damage is discovered, immediately notify the delivering carrier, requesting an immediate inspection. The inspection report should be used to support your claim against the carrier. Any claim for damage or shortage must be filed by you with the delivering carrier. Richards-Wilcox will not accept the return of merchandise damaged in transit. Your recourse is with the delivering carrier. Freight claim filing is the responsibility of the consignee and not Richards-Wilcox.
Caution: When you give the delivering carrier a clear receipt for a shipment in which there is damaged merchandise or a shortage, the carrier is relieved of further responsibility.
