Arrival Notice and Undelivered Freight
(See NOTES 6 and 7)  
  1. After shipment's arrival at Carrier's destination service center, notice of arrival (See NOTE 1) will be subject to an additional charge of $56.00 and will be given by:
    1. Actual tender of delivery at Consignee's place; or
    2. Telephone, if convenient and practical; or
    3. Written notice. (See NOTE 2)
  2. If freight cannot be delivered because of Consignee's refusal to accept it, or because Carrier cannot locate the Consignee, or because of an error or omission on the part of the Consignor, Carrier will make a diligent effort to notify the Consignor promptly that the freight is in storage. (See NOTES 3 and 4).
Note 1: However transmitted, the notice will specify the point of origin, Consignor, commodity description and shipment weight.
Note 2: When transmitted by mail, the notice will be deemed to have been received by 8:00 a.m. the first business day after it was mailed.
Note 3: If notice is given by telephone, Carrier's record of such date will govern, and said record will include name of Consignor contacted, name of individual contacted, date contacted and telephone number.
Note 4: If written notice is accomplished by certified mail, the date of Consignor's signature will determine arrival notice date. If by mail or telegraph other than certified, NOTE 2 will determine arrival notice date (See NOTE 5).
Note 5: If Consignor is advised of undelivered freight by both telephone and written notice, the earlier date will govern the arrival notice date.
Note 6: If original Consignee subsequently receives the shipment, any storage charges will be based on the date of arrival notice to Consignee. If another party subsequently receives freight, arrival notice date will be determined by NOTES 3 and 4.
Note 7: Instructions issued prior to tender of delivery will not be accepted as authority to reship or limit the storage liability of an undelivered shipment.
