WILMINGTON, Del. (Legal Newsline) – A supply chain and logistics company alleges a chemical manufacturing company owes more than $1 million for the termination of an agreement.
Exel Inc., doing business as DHL Supply Chain (USA), filed a complaint on Aug. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware against The Chemours Co. FC, LLC alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, in 2009, the defendants entered into a master contract that was effective through 2015. The suit states this contract included a site schedule agreement for warehouse services provided by DHL for Chemours at a Mississippi location, which was known as the Delisle Schedule.
In 2017, the suit states the parties entered into a cooperation and transition agreement to terminate the Delisle Schedule, and Chemours agreed to pay a $1.05 million termination payment to DHL.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages of more than $1.05 million in an amount to be proven at trial, plus attorneys' fees, expenses and court costs and such other and further legal and equitable relief as the court deem just, equitable and proper. It is represented by Christopher Viceconte of Gibbons PC in Wilmington, Delaware and Anthony C. White of Thompson Hine LLP in Columbus, Ohio.
