NOTICE TO TARIFF USERS

Carrier has opted to be exempt from tariff publication requirements pursuant to 46 C.F.R. §520 and 532. In that respect Carrier has opted for exclusive use of Negotiated Rate Arrangements (“NRAs”).

NVOCC NRA means the written and binding arrangement between an NRA shipper and eligible NVOCC to provide specific transportation service for a stated cargo quantity, from origin to destination on and after receipt of the cargo by the Carrier or its agent (originating carrier in the case of through Transportation).

Carrier shall issue quotation sheets, booking confirmations, e-mail communications and other writings (collectively “the writings”) which will constitute an offer by Carrier to Shipper for transportation services pursuant to 46 C.F.R. §520.13 and §532. The terms contained in the writings shall be a valid offer for thirty (30) days from the booking date, unless otherwise rescinded by the Carrier prior to receiving Shipper’s cargo. Carrier’s or Carrier’s agent’s receipt of cargo for this shipment constitutes acceptance by Shipper of this offer, and the terms of the NRA shall bind the parties.

All origin and destination local charges apply whether or not included in this Rules Tariff or in quotations.

Rates may not be modified in an NRA after the time the shipment is received by the Carrier or its agent (including originating carriers in the case of through transportation).
