That really sucks... maybe you can talk the freight co. into shipping the board back to Foote, then he can outsource the repair to maybe dingking maui, since their spacailty is DW boards. All on the shippers dime (prepaid of course) and also have it insured for the full cost of a new one incase of new damage happens on the trip back to you.
Freight companies are going to sand bag you in claims... that is their MO. your biggest problem is that it is in your posession, and now they don't care at all. maybe go sit in their lobby with the board and demand a face to face with the claim manager and president.
Lots of luck to you
