Abstract

The potential for losses in the logistical system is particularly great for perishables, as they are sensitive to time, climatic conditions, and handling. However, the literature is virtually silent regarding the extent and causes of such losses. This paper reports the results of a study of freight claims for produce and ornamentals. The results indicate that losses are of a magnitude that should merit the attention of shippers, carriers, and receivers. Various loss reducing measures are suggested.
