Item 130

PAYMENT OF CHARGES AND EXTENSION OF CREDIT

In case you have any questions regarding your bill, contact the Customer Service Department at (913)621-1840.

WEIGHING AND INSPECTION OF PROPERTY

If the description or other information contained on the bill of lading is incomplete or is believed to be incorrect, the carrier or carrier's agent will take necessary actions to determine the correct information.

Actions may include: reweighing product to determine gross weights, inspection of the product, computations on density or other such actions necessary to properly establish facts regarding the shipment characteristics.

When an inspection by carrier results in a reclassification of the contents of the shipment and the change results in an additional net freight charge of 10% of revenue or more, a charge of:

$16.00 per shipment will be applied.

The charge shall be the responsibility of the party responsible for paying the freight charges and shall be in addition to all other applicable charges.

The charge will not apply if the minimum weight or minimum charge in any of the following rules is used to determine final charges:

  1. Capacity Load minimum charge.
  2. Cubic Capacity and Density minimum charge.
  3. Over Dimension minimum charge.

Carrier reserves the right to verify shipment weight and make adjustments as necessary by use of electronic portable scales. Carrier verifies that such scales are "for trade" and meet all local and state laws regarding accurate weight within 1% tolerance of actual weight.If the weight determined by the carrier exceeds 10% from the original weight on the bill of lading, a charge of: $10.00 per shipment will be made for verifying the correct weight. Shipments tendered to carrier with no weight shall be exempt from this provision.
