The Facts are under the terms of my contract with Air Parcel Express that my Cargo was in fact miscarried. Under section #21 of your terms it was the Ocean carriers responsibility to compensate me the extra expenses that I would not have had to pay.

My contract was with Air Parcel Express, which you contracted with Conterm to ship my cargo.  Because I made payment to your company and because my contract for my cargo being shipped to the Wrong country, it is your companys responsibility to reimburse me for fees that I would not have had to pay in the first place! NOTE: CONTERM INFORMED ME TO DEAL WITH AIR PARCEL EXPRESS ON THIS MATTER AND THAT AIR PARCEL EXPRESS WOULD DEAL WITH CONTERM!

"If the goods cannot be found at the port of discharge or place of delivery, or if they be miscarried, they, when found, may be forwarded to their intended port of discharge or place of delivery at the Ocean carrier's expense". It was at my expense and not the carrier's. Thank you, Paul

Dear Paul:Your cargo was routed via Riga and arrived at the port of destination as specified ... we are in compliance with the terms and conditions specified in our bill of lading.  Here is the link to the terms.  http://www.shipping-worldwide.com/carrier.htm  We are still determining if there is anything we can do as far as the clearance but is seems that all cargo destined to Europe is prone to being cleared at the port of entry.

If there is anything else I can do for you please let me know.

Sincerely, Andy x 105 Director Air Parcel Express, Inc. F.M.C. / OTI # 019153NF

APX CEO and The Lie Continues

AUTHOR: Paul - (U.S.A.)

The CEO of APX is a liar and a cheat.  He never followed through with any of his statements to me.  Never took the time to find out who damaged my cargo in the United States before it was loaded into the wrong container and then sent to the wrong country.
Anyone who needs shipping worldwide would be better off not dealing with APX or there CEO.  Deal with the shipper directly and not a subcontractor who hides behind a 20 plus page contract, which the CEO has no understanding of his own contract and did not act in accordance to its own FMC rules.  I was paid by the shipping company Conterm for my cargo being shipped to the wrong country, which the CEO of APX claimed he had nothing to do with and stated that my cargo was not shipped to the wrong country.  I was never paid for the damage to my cargo before arriving to the ship in the United States, due to the CEO never took the time to deal with it.

#2 Consumer Comment

APX acted in accordance to FMC rules

AUTHOR: Ceoapx - (USA)

APX - Air Parcel Express, Inc. acted in accordance to FMC Rules which allow routings to final destination (difficult places usualy) via entry ports be it through third countries.  Also APX is allowed to co-load with other NVOCC carriers and in fact it is a prevalent practice in the shipping business.

APX Acted In Accordance To Terms and Conditions

AUTHOR: Ceoapx - (U.S.A.)

With over 100,000 shipments it is understandable that once in a while someone has a bad experience due to their lack of understanding of the shipping porcess, industry norms and/or conditions.

Our terms and conditions were ahered to.  The quote was correct.  The service was performed.  The loss incurred by shipper is less than $500 and the insurance adjustor denied the claim.  The cargo arrived in St. Petersburg via Riga.  We denied any claim of wrong doing after a thorough review of the shippers claim.   Our Bill of Lading states we can move cargo to its final destination by the following means ...
