Freight Expert Witnesses
Depending on the subject and specifics of the case, a freight expert witness typically has a background in transportation, supply chain management, trucking, logistics and/or distribution. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request a specialist with prior expert witness experience. The selected expert may be a member of an industry organization such as the American Trucking Associations (ATA), the International Road Transport Union (IRU), the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), or the Association for Supply Management (ASCM).
Matters requiring the expertise of a freight expert witness might encompass an intellectual property lawsuit (such as trade secret, patent infringement, trademark infringement), breach of contract issues, or import/export cases involving the International Trade Commission (ITC). Personal injury cases or truck accident investigation work are also areas where a freight specialist could provide expertise.
Litigation support by a freight expert witness could include arbitration, depositions, an expert report, expert opinion testimony, damages calculation, and expert witness testimony in court. It essential that an expert witness possess the ability to provide expert testimony in such a manner that a jury and judge can understand the factual evidence. In addition, clients may seek a freight expert, trucking industry expert, or transportation industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
