All shipments are delivered to the transportation company in good condition. BEGA’s liability ceases at that time. If a shipment is received damaged, recipient must accept the shipment and immediately contact the freight carrier for damage inspection.
If concealed damage is found, notify the delivering carrier at once and request an inspection. Without this inspection the transportation company will not consider a claim for loss or damage. If the carrier will not perform the inspection, recipient should prepare an affidavit that recipient contacted them, noting the time and date that they failed to comply with recipient’s request. This along with the other papers in recipients possession will support the claim.
If the shipment is not delivered in accordance with the quantity of cartons or packages as shown on the Bill of Landing and/or Freight Bill, do not accept it until such shortages are noted on the Bill of Landing and/or Freight Bill.
Damaged or Loss in Transit
Loss or disputes with carriers regarding damaged product does not relieve the buyer’s obligation to pay the full amount of BEGA’s invoice in a timely manner. Shipments must be inspected by the freight carrier immediately upon receipt for noticeable transportation loss or damage, and a claim entered at once with the carrier as stated.
All claims against BEGA, including claims for shortages and errors, must be made in writing ten (10) days after delivery. Failure to make any such claim within ten (10) days shall constitute acceptance of the merchandise and waive any such shortages, errors, or other claims.
