Not so peachy
- Date: 27/09/2017
A clerical error by a ship agent meant that the temperature on a reefer container, carrying a shipment of peaches, was set at 5.5C instead of 0.5C. The shipping line passed the cargo claim of US$59,000 to their agent. The agent settled the claim and was reimbursed by ITIC.
ITIC frequently handles claims involving erroneous temperature settings on reefer containers.
