  1. Except as provided, shipments will be accepted subject to the following provisions;
    1. A prepaid shipment is one on which the charges for transportation service rendered at the request of the Consignor, including charges for any optional or additional services performed at the request of the Consignor are to be paid by the Shipper.
    2. A collect shipment is one which the charges for transportation service, including optional or additional services rendered at the request of the Consignee, or requested by the Consignor for the Consignee, are to be paid for by the Consignee.
    3. A shipment on which charges are to be paid by a party other than the Consignor or Consignee will be accepted provided that the Consignor has established credit with the Carrier picking up the shipment at origin and guarantees to pay the charges if the Third Party fails to do so within the time allowed under the credit regulations or state regulatory commission. Such a shipment will not be accepted if the Consignor executes Section 7 of the bill of lading.
    4. If, in the judgment of the Carrier picking up a shipment at origin, the forced sale of the
      goods would not realize the total charges due at destination, the shipment must be prepaid.
    5. If a shipment is required by Paragraph D hereof or by any provisions of this classification to be prepaid, it will be accepted on a collect basis if the Consignor has established credit with the Carrier picking up the shipment at origin, and the Consignor guarantees to pay the charges if the Consignee fails to do so within the time allowed under credit regulations or state regulatory commission. Such a shipment will not be accepted as a collect shipment if the Consignor executes Section 7 of the bill of lading.
