It's all pretty much common sense stuff people should have been doing anyway. Hasn't affected the way we run reefer at all.

Enacted in 2011. Not exactly new.

If the ham is required to maintain a specific temperature in transport (specified on the BOL), and that didn't occur, the receiver can and should reject it. If your client doesn't understand the basic premise of that, than perhaps his company should get out of the perishables business.

I think I understand why he was fuming , it was a pre loaded cargo and shipper gave his driver BOL indicating that the temp had been set at 28 degrees but when the driver went to deliver the temp in the ham was 44 degrees... I ALSO KINDA BLAME THE DRIVER HE SHOULD HAVE DOUBLE CHECKED

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
