New Member
It has been 6 years since the NTBA and Delta Nu Alpha have held a combined meeting on the subject of the Bills of Lading Act - one of the most misunderstood legislations in Canada.

The discussion will center on presentations by noted transportation lawyers Gordon Hearn and Martin Abadi of the Fernandes Hearn LLP law firm.

I'm going to have to attend this.
I see over and over again shippers that put 3PL's on the BOL listed as a carrier - no matter how many times we tell them not to. Do I have any claim vs. the shipper or consignee if the importer refuses to pay the freight bill but I've long paid the transporting carrier? DO I need to ask the carrier to help me sue (even though they technically have been paid)?

Those kinds of questions - I'd rather ask in a formal manner than put it out here and get 'mostly' educated guesses.

See you there,
