What is Freight Claim?

A Freight Claim is a legal demand for compensation made by a shipper or consignee against a carrier or other responsible party for loss, damage, or delay to their cargo during transit. A freight claim is typically filed when the goods are delivered and found to be damaged or missing. The claimant must provide evidence of the damage or loss, such as photographs or shipping documents, and the carrier or responsible party may have the opportunity to investigate the claim before determining whether to pay the claim or dispute it.
