  1. The provision of Item 765 of the NMF Series will apply and in addition:
    Unless otherwise provided, when a pricing program is published in this tariff or in any other tariffs published by Carrier, such pricing program will be applied in the following order or precedence:
    1. FOR OUTBOUND PREPAID SHIPMENTS:
      1. A pricing program published for the account of the Shipper will take precedence over all other pricing programs.
    2. FOR OUTBOUND COLLECT SHIPMENTS:
      1. An inbound collect pricing program published for the account of the Consignee will take precedence over all other pricing programs.
      2. If there is no inbound collect pricing program published for the account of the Consignee, the outbound collect pricing program published for the account of the Shipper will apply, unless the Shipper's pricing program does not apply on outbound collect shipments.
    3. FOR INBOUND COLLECT SHIPMENTS:
      1. The inbound collect pricing program published for the account of the Consignee will take precedence over all other pricing programs.
      2. If there is no inbound collect pricing program published for the account of the Consignee, the outbound collect pricing program published for the account of the Shipper will apply, if applicable.
    4. FOR THIRD PARTY SHIPMENTS (applies when bill of lading indicates a party other than the Shipper, Consignee, or Shipper or Consignee's freight payment processor as the Payor of the freight charges)
      1. A pricing program published for the account of the Third Party Payor will take precedence over all other pricing programs.
      2. A Third Party Payor pricing program will apply only when the Third Party Payor is neither the Shipper nor the Consignee.
      3. All Third Party Payor shipments must be prepaid.
      4. When the Bill of Lading shows freight terms as prepaid and instruction for Third Party Billing, and the Third Party Payor is the same as the Consignee or the Consignee’s freight payment processor, the terms will be changed to Collect, billing the Consignee or the Consignee’s freight payment processor.
    5. If an optional or additional service is requested by means other than on the original bill of lading, the optional or additional service fees and charges will be rated according to the requestor’s pricing program. If the requestor does not have a published pricing program, applicable charges for such requested optional or additional service fees and charges will be those as stated in the FXF 100 series rules tariff.
  2. For the purpose of applying this item, the following terms are defined as designated:
    1. Shipper or Consignor - The party shown on the bill of lading at time of pickup as the Shipper of the goods.
    2. Consignee - The party shown on the bill of lading at time of pickup as the Consignee of the goods.
    3. Third party Payor - The party shown on the bill of lading as the Payor of the freight charges who is neither the Shipper nor the Consignee, nor the freight payment processor of either the Shipper or the Consignee.
    4. Freight Payment Processor (commonly referred to as "Bill-To") - A bank or freight payment agency designated to pay the freight charges on behalf of the Shipper, Consignee or Third Party Payor.
    5. Pricing Program - Any program created to apply in lieu of the Carrier's full actual class rates and charges as published in FXF 1000 Series tariff.
