According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics there are over 14,000 warehouse facilities in the United States as of 2006. Often times those providing the warehouse services also provide cross-docking, packing or re-packing and transportation services as well. Those charged with storing goods and providing packaging and transportation services obtain specialized warehousing coverage to insure the risks attendant to those services. Our attorneys have handled all manner of warehousing losses arising from theft, fire, flood, lack of refrigeration, missing inventory, damage during handling, insufficient facility maintenance and a variety of other causes. Whether from the defense or insurance coverage perspective, our attorneys have experience analyzing not only the warehousing risks but also the contractual agreements through which the warehousing services are provided and the limitations on recovery that can be associated with such warehousing agreements, bills of lading, warehouse receipts and invoices issued for the goods stored.
