    Someone is entitled but not the person who destroys it then contributes 20% to the cause.

    The salvage depends on the product if it is normal everyday product then yes but if it has anything to do with Health Canada it has to be destroyed. Generally anything tracked like food or over the counter drugs would have to have a proper destruction certificate.
  3. Someone is paying for it (carrier or insurance company) and they are entitled to the "salvage" are they not?

    He's not paying for it and only wants to contribute 20% to the bill for the damage he caused. I can't see this plan working for you pitbull and if it does the next load of flat screens I haul may go missing and I'll be standing at their door with the $2/LB. Pls keep us posted.

    And tell them you want the damaged freight back if you are paying for it then it belongs to you.

    the second version is right, it's the total weights that is use in case of damage.

    If anyone could comment on the following situation, it would be appreciated.

    We picked up 100 units weighing 1000 lbs. 50 units were damaged. Using the BOL, that says we are liable for $2.00 a pound. Would we be liable for a total of $1000 or $2000.
    The actual cost to replace is $5000.

    One version is we are only liable for $1000 because only 50 units were damaged.

    The second version is we are liable for $2000 because it goes by the total weight of the shipment not the individual units.

    If anyone else had this situation, I would appreciate your response. Thanks
