Understanding Your Rights Within The Carmack Amendment

The Carmack Amendment is a federal law that applies to shippers and carriers involved with interstate shipments. The amendment provides guidelines for the rights, responsibilities and liabilities of both parties after lost or damaged cargo. Under the amendment, shippers must make claims for lost or damaged cargo in writing to carriers within nine months of the incident. It also allows carriers to limit their liability.

Interstate shipping is an everyday reality for many, whether your business is focused in surface and air transport, third-party logistics or more. Whether you are a shipper or carrier, we will advise on your rights within the Carmack Amendment and represent you in a dispute.
