Claim for delayed delivery
Making a claim for delayed delivery is known as a “delay claim”. Such claims are filed when the shipment is either not received on time or the pickup date has been missed etc.
It is very important that before you sign the insurance contract you make it very clear to the shipper as to when you want him to pick up the goods and from where and also inform him clearly about the arrival date of the goods. This way your shipper will be bound to deliver the goods on the specific date and any delay on his part will result in a claim. In case no dates have been mentioned, the shipper is bound to deliver your goods within a reasonable time limit. This would mean that if the shipper takes three to four days to deliver the goods at a certain location, the goods reaching on the fifth day would be considered as “late delivery”, unless of course it is due to some unforeseen circumstances which are beyond the control of the shipper.
Delay due to “force majure” or acts of god can usually not be challenged. Thus in case there is a delay due to heavy rainfall, snow or storm, the shipper will not be liable to reimburse you for any delay in delivery. It is thus very important that you read the terms and conditions of the contract before you purchase the insurance policy.
