Salvage Retention

Salvage must be retained until the claim is concluded.  Once liability has been accepted by the carrier, disposition of the freight should be determined at that time.  If retaining the freight is not feasible, the carrier must be notified for disposition immediately. 

Destroying the freight without authorization from the carrier could result in non-payment of the claim.  If you have any questions about salvage retention, or if you have any questions about the claim process, email
