Equipment Delivery Procedures
Regardless of the carrier used, the receiver is responsible for thoroughly inspecting the shipment immediately upon receipt as well as noting any specific damage on the delivery receipt before signing. If no damage is noted on the delivery receipt at the time of delivery the receiver affirms that the item has been fully inspected, is undamaged and is as has been previously described to them. If a damage claim is filed after the delivery with no damage noted on the original receipt the liability will be reduced to 25% of the cargo value.
