Cargo Dynamics Logistics Inc. v. Apex Micro Manufacturing Corp.

In Carriage of Goods by Road/Rail on (Updated )

This was an action for freight owing in respect of a number of shipments. The defendant was the consignee of the shipments and alleged that it was not liable for the freight as the plaintiff/carrier had contracted with the shipper. The evidence established, however, that the carriage arrangements were made between the plaintiff and defendant, and that the plaintiff was never advised that the defendant purported to act as agent only. In result, the defendant was liable for the freight.
