If a shipment originated outside the United States, the contract of carriage is with the Broker’s subsidiary, branch, or independent contractor who originally accepts the shipment.

2) Payments

All charges are payable in US Dollars, due and payable NET fifteen (15) days from the date of invoice by Broker, provided Customer’s credit application is approved. Alternative terms may be required if the credit application is incomplete or Customer’s credit score does not meet Broker’s standards. Overpayments do not accrue interest and are subject to the Laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the event the Broker retains an attorney or collection agency to collect unpaid charges or for the enforcement of the Agreement, and Customer shall also be liable for all attorneys’ and collection agency fees incurred, together with all related costs and expenses.

3) Quotation & Rates

Quotations by Broker are for informational purposes only and are subject to change without notice. No quotation binds Broker unless Broker agrees to handle or transport the goods at specific rates and payment terms.

Rate acceptance is required in writing prior to Goods booking, which rate is subject to change by carrier upon its receipt of the Goods. Domestic less-than-truckload (“LTL”) rates are based on the freight class as determined by the NMFC (National Motor Freight Classification). All displayed transit times for surface transportation are estimates only and do not include day of pickup, and surface transportation pickup dates are not guaranteed. Surface transportation rates are based on road regal weight and inclusive of fuel surcharge unless otherwise specified, which fuel surcharge is subject to fluctuation. Overweight containers are subject to additional cost. Rates are subject to (i) chassis usage surcharge, chassis split, lift, and/or repossession charge, if applicable, and (ii) any GRI, PSS, port congestion, BAF and other accessorial charges or increases as per carrier(s) without notice at time of shipment. All guaranteed LTL services are governed exclusively by the carrier’s General Rules Tariff.
