Except as otherwise provided, shipments rated at 10,000 pounds or more may be stopped in transit up to four times for the purpose of partial loading or unloading (but not both at the same point), providing that each stopoff point is immediately en route between origin and final destination. Shipper must prepay all charges. The provisions of this item do not apply to COD shipments when unloading service is provided nor to Exclusive Use shipments. Linehaul charges will be based on the total weight of all freight transported by Carrier, from the initial origin point, to any intermediate point where shipment is stopped for partial loading or unloading or to the final destination point. The higher resultant charges will be applicable to the shipment. A charge of $450.00 per stop will apply in addition to linehaul charges.
