Dubai sea carrier cleared over spoiled tomatoes

Dubai, UAE: A sea carrier has been cleared of causing nearly £12,500 (Dh69,000) worth of damage to a fresh tomato consignment that was being transported in a temperature-controlled container from India to Dubai.

The Dubai Commercial Court found the Dubai-based unnamed carrier not accountable for the damage that hit the fresh tomato consignment, hence laying the blame on a company that trades in fruits and vegetables.
The court dismissed the commercial case lodged against the carrier and held the company [claimant] liable for the loss that was caused due to the latter’s negligence.

Advocate Tarek Sa’ad, of Dr Habib Al Mulla and Partners, said: “Our client [the carrier] signed an agreement with the company [shipper] to transport the fresh tomato consignment from a port in India to Jebel Ali Port. The consignment was delivered to the company’s warehouses in the fruit and vegetable Market in Al Aweer.
