There is a growing litigation trend in the transportation industry.  In particular, transportation brokers are being sued for vicarious liability, in connection with negligent conduct of carriers.  It is essential that trucking companies, as well as freight brokers, have well-written contracts to protect them, to the fullest extent possible, from potential future liability.  In addition, it is beneficial to set up long term business relationships, based on mutual understanding.  In essence, the contract defines the parties’ mutual intent and helps govern situations as they arise.
