      3. FedEx Freight shall have the right to collect charges from the Payor in the case of both loading or unloading, regardless of whether linehaul charges are prepaid or collect.
      4. When loading or unloading is not completed by the end of the business day, Consignor/Consignee has the option to:
        1. Request trailer/doubles without power remain. Free time will cease, and DETENTION without Power will begin with applicable free time.
