Illinois recycler is suing three transportation companies after
loads of copper scrap worth more than $450,000 failed to arrive
at a customer in New York.
Metals Recycling Corp. has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District
Court in Illinois against Homer Glen, Ill.-based GI Carriers
Inc., Chicago-based Partage LLC and Dallas-based Worldwide
Industrial Metals said
in court documents that it sold 130,643 pounds of copper chops
valued at $452,890 to Aurubis Buffalo Inc., Buffalo, N.Y., and
arranged to have the material delivered in three shipments by
the contracted companies. None of the shipments arrived,
according to the company.
doesnt comment on pending litigation, an attorney for the
company said, but added that it is confident of a favorable
outcome. Worldwide Express brokers motor carriers and
doesnt actually haul, he added.
GI Carriers has had
its license revoked, according to federal records, and
couldnt be reached for comment. Partage didnt
respond to a request for comment.
