Freight Forwarders

In summay Freight Forwarding Services are to include following sectors:

·   Ocean freight forwarder / NVOC

·   Air freight forwarder / air cargo agent

·   Customs Agent

·   Road haulier

·   In transit warehousing

·   Packing / Consolidating

 

So Many Claims

Getting goods from point A to B usually involves numerous parties in the supply chain. When things go wrong and substantial losses are incurred, who will be held liable?

 

Any number of parties can instigate legal proceedings:

 

·         The cargo owner – your customer

·         Sub-contractors

·         Owners or operators of the vessel, aircraft or truck carrying the cargo

·         Authorities

·         Third parties to whom you owe a duty of care

 

Claims can be made under a contract, standard terms of trade, ocean bill of lading or airway bill. Additionally, third party claims in tort, bailment and statutory liabilities can catch you unaware. It is even more difficult when a customer brings a claim against you. After all, the success of your business depends on customer relationships.

    Slm kenal Pak Imam, mohon bantuannya mengenai perhitungan penutupan pertanggungan oleh penanggung, misalnya contoh kasus;
    suatu pengiriman 10.000 karung kopi Arabika yang dipertanggungkan dgn harga pertanggungan 2 Milyar (CIF) dgn harga kondisi ICC-C 1/1/82 diangkut dengan kapal “Bahari” bertabrakan dengan Kapal “Sea Sun” yg tdk bermuatan, akibat tabrakan tersebut lambung kapal “Bahari” diperbaiki sementara agar dpt melanjutkan perjalanan menuju pelabuhan terdekat yg berjarak tidak lebih dari 3 jam, untuk itu nahkoda harus mengeluarkan uang sebesar Rp. 100 jt. kemudian kapal diperbaiki secara permanen di pelabuhan tujuan dan untuk itu dikeluarkan biaya mencapai Rp. 500 jt. Kapal ”Sea Sun” setelah tabrakan bias melanjutkan perjalana ke Pelabuhan darurat dlm waktu 2 jam dan diperbaiki secara permanent dgn biaya Rp. 200 jt.
    Pada Saat Kapal “Bahari” sampai di pelabuhan tujuan (destination port) diketahui bahwa:
    a. terjadi kerusakan cargo karena air masuk ke palka 50 karung kopi rusak dan tdk bias dijual.
    b. Pada saat terjadi tabrakan ada 1000 karung kopi dilaporkan telah dibuang kelaut atas perintah nahkoda untuk mengurangi beban agar air tidak terus masuk ke palka.
    c. Ada 500 karung kopi rusak dan dijual di pasar dgn harga 50 % dari harga pasar
    d. Nahkoda mengeluarkan biaya :
    • Sebesar Rp. 50 jt untuk surveyor
    •Sebesar Rp. 100 jt untuk average adjuster
    e. Sekitar 100 karung kopi mengalami shortage rata-rata 10 Kg/karung
    Berapakah tanggung jawab penanggung yang menutup pertanggungan atas 10.000 karung kopi di Kapal “Bahari”
    Dengan asumsi-asumsi sbb;
    a. harga jual kopi arabika adalah Rp. 300 ribu/karung
    b. Nilai Kapal “Bahari” sekitar 200 Milyar
    c. Nilai Kapal “Sea Sun” sekitar 150 Milyar
    d. Abaikan uang tambang kedua kapal
    Terima Kasih Sebelumnya.

    Imam MUSJAB: waduuh saya tidak kompeten menjawab perhitunganya ibu. alangkah baiknya ibu untuk menghubungi average adjusters supaya memperoleh penjelasan lebih details
