Case Update: Cargo Law

Simultaneously, they were able to arrange for the sale of those products to a set of buyers in East Asia.  Pursuant to the original domestic purchase orders, the American vendors would be responsible for the shipment of goods to Asia. After the first containers were en route, a site inspection by our client found that the next load of goods pending shipment were out of compliance with the original specifications.  This raises serious questions about the suitability of the first shipments which are steaming westbound across the Pacific and out of reach until they arrive at their destination port.
