Charges will be computed from the time Carrier departs its service center until its return thereto.
Party requesting the above services will provide Letter of Authority (LOA) prior to Carrier performing above service so stating the responsible party for paying the above charges or providing credit card information for payment of such services.
Carrier liability will be limited to not greater than $0.50 per pound per incident.
If Carrier is to hold overweight shipment at Carrier's service center for pickup, cross dock handling charges as so stated in Item 565 will be applicable in addition to the above charges.
If Carrier is to forward overweight shipment from Carrier's service center to another delivery point, this service will be handled as an LTL shipment with applicable LTL line haul charges in addition to the above charges. A Letter of Authority (LOA) so stating delivery information and responsible party for payment of LTL charges will be required before shipment can depart the Carrier's original service center.
By no means will the act of the Carrier performing the above services be construed to mean that the Carrier will become party to existing contracts that involved the original shipment by the other Carrier/Shipper whose vehicle is being off loaded.
