Everyth​ing Old is New Again: Drop and Hook and Interlining or Interchange as a Solution to the Perils of Dock Congestion, ELD Mandates and Unpaid Detention​

Please see the Importan​t Information below before you register.
​When everything old is new again.  Dock congestion, ELD mandates, and unpaid detention associated with tightened capacity and an increase in shipper on-time delivery and real-time telematics demands -- this is what keeps motor carriers, big and small, up at night in the Amazon era.  Join Tyler Hayes and Hank Seaton for a discussion on how trailer pools, dock spotting services and drop and hook operations can help carriers gain efficiencies, eliminate uncompensated detention and enhance truckload productivity. During this webinar, the panelists will re-visit fundamental interlining and interchange concepts and apply them as possible solutions to new industry problems. In doing so, the panelists will delve into: (1) the effect of drop and hook and interlining/interchange solutions on cargo liability exposure among participating entities; (2) how to mitigate risk by properly allocating responsibilities and risks in contracts, e.g., interchange, spotting and dropyard agreements and the interplay between these agreements and anti-lumping statutes; and (3) the importance of documenting the interchange of equipment. Lastly, the panelists will analyze cargo interlining and insurance coverage issues associated with physical damage, how interchange agreements tie in with shipper and freight broker vicarious liability exposure, and miscellaneous liability compliance and indemnity matters.
