TERMS OF CONTRACT
You are responsible for the accurate completion of a Premier Express Waybill for any shipment, and hereby consent to all of the terms provided in these Conditions of Service. No agent, employee, or representative of Premier Express may alter, modify, or waive any of these Conditions of Service.
RESPONSIBILITY OF PACKAGING
In tendering the shipment for carriage, you warrant that the shipment is packaged adequately to protect the enclosed goods, and ensure safe transportation with ordinary care and handling, and that the package is appropriately labeled and is in good order, unless otherwise noted for carriage as specified. You further warrant that the contents may be lawfully carried over public highways, and/or aboard airline aircraft and is not a prohibited or restricted commodity under any applicable laws or regulations.
LIMITS OF LIABILITY/DECLARED VALUE
The liability of Premier Express is limited to the actual value of the package(s) up to a maximum of $100, unless a higher value is declared for carriage herein, and an additional charge is paid at the rate of $2.23 per $100 value. The maximum allowable higher declared value is $1,000. If more than one package is tendered on a Waybill, but the sender has not specified the declared value of each individual package, the declared value for each package is determined by dividing the declared value on the Waybill by the number of packages indicated on the Waybill up to the actual value of each individual package or $100 whichever is less. Premier Express will in no way be liable for any loss, mis-delivery, non-delivery, or delays caused by: (a) the act or omission of the sender or recipient; (b) the nature of the shipment or defect or inherent vice thereof; (c) acts of God, public enemies, public authorities, quarantine, perils of the air, strikes, civil commotions, weather conditions, or mechanical failures or delays of the trucks or aircraft; (d) improper or insufficient packaging, securing or addressing of the package.
Premier Express will in no way be liable in any event for any special, incidental, or consequential damages, regardless of whether or not we have knowledge that such damages have been incurred including but not limited to loss of profits or income.
RIGHT TO INSPECTION
We may at our option open and inspect any shipment for any reason, including but not limited to verification of contents prior to or after the acceptance of the shipment.
If the recipient accepts the shipment without noting any damage on the delivery record, this shall be prima facie evidence that the shipment was delivered in good condition, and act as a bar to the assertion of any claim for loss or damage. In the event for a claim for concealed damage, shortage or delay, written notice of the loss must be reported by the sender within 15 days after delivery of the shipment. Written notice of loss due to non-delivery must be reported by the sender within 20 days after the acceptance of the shipment. No claim for loss to a shipment will be investigated until all charges have been paid. The amount of claims may not be deducted from the charges. Claims for refunds and over-charges must be made in writing to Premier Express within 60 days of the billing invoice date.
WEIGHTS AND CORRECTIONS
Charges for this shipment are based on the greater of the actual or dimensional weight. We reserve the right to reweigh shipments at any time prior to delivery. We may make corrections on this Waybill and/or on your billing invoice based on reweighing, measuring or inspecting of the shipment.
RESPONSIBILITY OF PAYMENT
Notwithstanding the sender's instructions to the contrary, the sender will be liable for all costs and expenses relating to the shipment, and all costs incurred in either returning the shipment to the sender or warehousing the shipment pending disposition. Premier Express assumes no responsibility for billing disputes resulting from inaccuracies contained in or omissions from the Waybill. All amounts due over 30 days shall accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% per month. Accounts over 30 days are subject to our refusal of services until paid in full.
