North Shore Claims Service has represented the insurance, transportation, and manufacturing industries selling distressed inventories and damaged cargos, for more than 20 years.
While North Shore has always been associated with the metals segment of the asset recovery industry, over the last ten years we have expanded our focus to include food, building materials, lumber, & retail goods.
In the metals Industry, for example, often times we are able to recondition the product or negotiate a successful resolution to the claim, which allows the original customer to use the metals in their manufacturing process, thus substantially reducing the costs to our clients. Depending on our involvement, we are able to negotiate with the wrecker, warehouse, processor, freight company, and others that may be involved with the claim.
When, however, the cargo cannot be used by the original consignee and a sale is the best method of recovery, we target other end users first, they get a good deal and our clients get a much better recovery.
Over the years, we have developed hundreds of contacts in many different industries. Companies that are able to use less than "Prime" metals and other types of inventories. Because of this many times we are able to eliminate the middleman.
One of the most important aspects of ensuring the best recovery possible is securing the damaged cargo, quickly. Protecting cargo from the elements, theft, and other causes of deterioration is what we do. Our goal is to determine, the who, what, where, when, why and how of a recovery, while protecting our clients cargo and best interests. Remember the next time you have damaged cargo to deal with, eliminate the middleman and put more of that recovery where it belongs, on your bottom line. Give North Shore Claims Service a call !!!
