No charges outside of the written details of “The Load Agreement” will be accepted. Agreed upon rates, are by design, initiated at “The Shipper” and are in the same way satisfied at “The Consignee”. Mileage outside of these parameters is therefore irrelevant. As “Loads Unlimited Inc” is neither shipper or receiver “Loads Unlimited Inc” can not guarantee freight booked in any form; therefore, any fees attached to trucks or orders not used are irrelevant and are subsequently denied. It is the responsibility of “The Carrier” to notify “Loads Unlimited Inc” of any changes to “The Load Agreement” that may result in: late pick-ups and or deliveries, accessorial charges and any potential waiting time during or before these times in question. “The Carrier” must obtain a receipt of response from “Loads Unlimited Inc” should this occur. Consequently, all charges after they have occurred will be denied. All accessorial charges must be pre-approved by “Loads Unlimited Inc” and billed at time of original invoicing accompanied by a Proof of Delivery signed by a corresponding shipper or receiver confirming in writing times and or any accessorial charges, which are then still subject to approval. 1st come appointments will not collect waiting time unless specifically agreed upon in writing prior to the appointment in written on “The Load Agreement”.

Waiting times including 1st come shipments will not be processed unless approved by the customer, shipper or the receiver providing written times in and times out with corresponding signatures. All Appointments must be kept. Failure to do so will result in the inability to compensate any carrier for downtime or waiting time and as a result the Shipper/Receiver may enforce financial penalties at their discretion.
