Hi. I'm in court right now but I could probably call at lunchtime.

Can you give me more information upon your situation though so I can prepare a response?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Goods were shipped to customer in Doncaster. Three pallets equal size and product volume
I arranged inspection on site and found product defect.Witnessed by customer
I arranged via same carrier to collect goods and return to carriers depot for rework.
At the depot Two of the three pallets had been altered and one layer of cartons removed from each 120 products at a value of £6594.
After debate with the carriers Sheldon Clayton Group covered by RHA conditions of carriage 2009 I completed claim form.The compensation offered was £247. And I was advised to contact without delay to my own Marine Cargo Insurers, which I do not have.For information whilst reworking the goods on site I was informed by an employee ( which will be denied) that the company knew the person responsible (driver) as there had been previous thefts related to that driver but not proven.As I have no Marine insurance the limited liability restricts to £247.
Is there another legal route against the company for compensation.Obviously If not I need to know to avoid additional legal costs over the loss of goods.RegardsHarry Bradley
