This case involves a shipping company who had the contents of one of its containers stolen from its warehouse. The contents of the container were valued at almost $10 million. The attorney was representing the insurer. The shipping company’s policy required the shipping containers to be locked at all times while in storage. The shipping company claimed that the locks on their shipping containers could be opened if the pins were cut with bolt cutters. It was alleged by the shippers that someone cut this pin and stole items from the container. The insurer denied the claim, contending there was no evidence that the container lock had been tampered with. An expert in shipping customs was sought to address common industry practices for storing containers and to determine whether the shipping container in question had been tampered with.
