Critical to any transportation system are the issues facing goods moving for further processing or stopping in their journey for a short time. Many times those way points are longer-term commercial storage warehouses, sometimes those are shorter-term fulfillment facilities. Although transportation is mostly about movement, goods temporarily stopping raises additional legal issues regarding insurance, duties of care in on-site handling, temperature and moisture control, freedom from adulteration under state and federal food and safety laws (including the Food Safety Modernization Act – FSMA), security, as well as import- and export-related issues. The attorneys at Lommen Abdo will point you in the right direction even if your goods, or the ones you are temporarily storing, are not going anywhere right now.
