Announcing Volume 2, Issue 2 of The Intermodal Lead

The Transportation Industries Group of Foster Pepper PLLC is pleased to present the next issue of The Intermodal Lead, a newsletter summarizing legal developments in freight carriage, logistics and transportation infrastructure for firm clients and friends.

In this issue:

  • The impact of a complex charter party arrangement on cargo liability.
  • But what about My attorneys’ fees?
  • The Fair Labor Standards Act’s motor carrier exemption applies even to drivers who might run interstate hauls that might include exempt cargoes.
  • If an insurer knows its policyholder is a motor carrier, then it has issued motor carrier insurance – at least in the Peach State.
  • Who’s a shipper for Carmack purposes? First, look at the bill of lading.
  • Carmack preemption doesn’t extend to state good faith settlement statutes.
  • A danger of daisy chains: a broker claiming a broker isn’t a broker.

For more information, contact any attorney from the Transportation Industries Group.
