A law firm representing a large insurance company used Distribution Design as an expert witness in a case alleging gross negligence by a 3rd party logistics provider (3PL). The 3PL accepted some extremely high value product for storage without having good security systems and processes in place to prevent theft. The 3PL also did not have a drug testing program in place. An internal theft ring systematically stole over $500,000 worth of product to sell on the black market. While the people involved were convicted and sentenced to jail, the insurance company’s lawsuit requested reimbursement for the loss from the 3PL and its insurance company.
