TIA Minnesota Seminar Report – Part II
Presented by Brent Wm. Primus, J.D.

All businesses face a certain amount of risk. This is especially true for transportation brokers. With every load a broker is exposed to legal and financial risks in the amount of hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars. These range from having to pay the same freight bill twice… to an uninsured cargo claim… to vicarious liability for highway accidents… all in exchange for a profit margin measured in hundreds of dollars.

The primary tool for minimizing these risks is the use of contracts with the broker’s carriers and shippers… and also Terms and Conditions for customers not under contract. Accordingly, contracts and T & C’s will be one of the primary focuses of the upcoming Minnesota seminar on August 2nd and 3rd, 2018

Here is what attendees from last year’s seminar said they would be doing in the next 30 days:

“As soon as we get back we are going to review our MC Agreement and T&C with certain clients.”
-- Director of Logistics, Broker

“I will be sure to review our contracts.”
-- Owner, Broker

“Great tips for reducing risks in contracting.”
-- Partner, Law Firm

“I handle plant claims, can use some of the knowledge to help make carriers liable; time frames; contract trumps everything.”
-- Transportation Manager, Major Shipper

“Publishing Ts&Cs for non-contractual shipments.”
-- General Counsel, Broker
