(19) “Warehouseman’s Liability” means that except for its negligence, carrier is not liable for loss or damage to freight pending disposition.
(20) Unless otherwise provided in carrier’s specific tariffs, a “SHIPMENT” consists of a quantity of freight tendered to a carrier by one
consignor (shipper) at one place at one time for delivery to one consignee at one place on one bill of lading.
(a)
A “PREPAID SHIPMENT” is one for which the charges for transportation services rendered at the request of the consignor,
including charges for any accessorial services performed at the request of the consignor, are to be paid by the consignor.
Notwithstanding the consignor’s primary payment responsibility, both consignor and consignee are liable for payment of the
carrier’s freight charges under the theory that both the consignor and consignee receive the benefit of the carrier’s services. Thus,
if the consignor does not pay the charges within carrier’s payment terms for any reason, including insolvency, the charges may be
reversed to the consignee and become the consignee’s responsibility for payment.
(b) A “COLLECT SHIPMENT” is one for which the charges for transportation services, including accessorial services rendered at the
request of the consignee, or requested by the consignor for the consignee, are to be paid for by the consignee. Notwithstanding
the consignee’s primary payment responsibility, both consignor and consignee are liable for payment of the carrier’s freight
charges under the theory that both the consignor and consignee receive the benefit of the carrier’s services. Thus, if the consignee
does not pay the charges within carrier’s payment terms for any reason, including insolvency, the charges may be reversed to the
consignor and become the consignor’s responsibility for payment.
(c)
A “THIRD PARTY PAYOR SHIPMENT” is one for which the charges for transportation services, including accessorial charges
rendered at the request of the consignor and/or consignee are to be paid for by a third party. Third parties are often firms such as
logistics companies (3PL’s), brokers or other intermediaries who provide services for/to consignors and/or consignees, but who
have no contractual relationship with a carrier. Notwithstanding a third party’s primary payment responsibility, both consignor and
consignee remain liable for payment of the carrier’s freight charges under the theory that all parties receive the benefit of the
carrier’s services. Thus, if the third party does not pay the charges within carrier’s payment terms for any reason, including
insolvency, the charges may be reversed to the consignor or consignee or both in succession if either fails to pay. It is a
recognized risk to consignors and consignees dealing with third parties that, should the third party fail to pay a valid freight bill, the
consignors and consignees remain liable for payment to the carrier. This is the case even if the consignor or consignee has
already forwarded payment to the third party and third party fails to pay carrier.
(21) Jurisdiction : Exclusive jurisdiction venue for all civil actions arising out of transportation services provided by Central Transport LLC
including but not limited to actions arising from alleged damage to cargo and collection actions shall be either the state or federal courts
in the State of Michigan. If any party files a legal action in contravention of the foregoing sentence, Central Transport shall be entitled to
collect its reasonable attorney fees and costs associated with enforcing the foregoing sentence regardless of the ultimate outcome of
the legal action. Shipper, consignee, third-party, ultimate debtor or any agent of any of these parties, by tendering freight to Carrier or by
being a party to the same shipment transaction in any way whatsoever, hereby consents to the personal jurisdiction of the state and
federal courts of the State of Michigan. Laws of the State of Michigan shall apply to all contract or service disputes relating to indemnity
by Carrier.
(22) Recovery of Freight Charges: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C § 14101(b)(1), customers that participate in and benefit from Central Transport’s
discount and/or pallet programs but neglect to sign and return the Document of Understanding expressly waive the “18 months”
provision of 49 U.S.C § 14705(a) and replace it with 72 months.

ITEM 120 — INVOICING OF ACCESSORIAL CHARGES — GENERAL RULES
(Party Responsible For Payment)
120
Except as otherwise stated or provided for within specific items in this tariff, all accessorial charges will be billed (invoiced) to the party or parties
that requested the services and thereby assume payment responsibility.
For purposes of this rule, the “party primarily responsible for payment” is the following:
Prepaid Shipments:
1. If no third-party is involved, all freight charges will be billed (invoiced) to the Shipper. Destination accessorial charges ordered on the
BOL will be billed (invoiced) to Shipper unless stated otherwise. Charges for services requested by and performed for the Consignee
will be billed (invoiced) to the Consignee. E.g. If Shipper states on BOL that a delivery appointment is required, it will be presumed that
Shipper is assuming payment responsibility and the charge will be billed (invoiced) to Shipper. If an inside delivery is not ordered on the
BOL but, Consignee requests inside delivery at time of delivery, the inside delivery charge will be billed (invoiced) to the Consignee.
2.
If a third-party is the debtor, all accessorial charges ordered on the BOL will be billed (invoiced) to the third-party and all accessorial
services not ordered on the BOL but requested by and performed for the Consignee will be billed (invoiced) to the Consignee.
Collect Shipments:
1. If no third-party is involved, all freight charges will be billed (invoiced) to the Consignee. Accessorial charges will be billed (invoiced) to
Shipper for services requested by and performed for Shipper and to Consignee for services performed for Consignee.
2.
If a third-party is the debtor, all accessorial charges ordered on the BOL will be billed (invoiced) to the Shipper and all accessorial
services not ordered on the BOL but requested by and performed for the Consignee will be billed (invoiced) to the third-party
The general rule is that Carrier will invoice the party who requested the service. E.G., For a prepaid shipment for which a lift-gate delivery is
required, the carrier will invoice the Shipper for the freight charges and either the Shipper or Consignee for the lift-gate charge depending on how
and by whom the service was requested: If the Shipper ordered the service on the original BOL, then the Shipper will be invoiced for the service. If
the service was not ordered on the BOL but later requested or required by the Consignee, then the Consignee will be invoiced for the service. If a
shipment is collect and a lift-gate delivery is performed for the Consignee then the Consignee will be invoiced.
Regardless of which party is initially invoiced however, the Shipper, Consignee and any Third Party remain jointly liable for all charges. In the
event Shipper, Consignee or Third Party primarily responsible for payment does not pay applicable charges within normal terms, the other parties
shall remain liable for all charges.
Rebilling Fee:
In the event the originally invoiced party (debtor) fails to pay any charges and Carrier must bill another party, a charge of $25.00 will be added to
the invoice to defray Carrier’s costs of re-billing, printing, mailing and conducting related collection activities.
ITEM 130 — MINIMUM CHARGES — ABSOLUTE MINIMUM CHARGE FLOORS
When customer specific pricing programs provide for discounting of freight charges including the discounting of tariff minimum charges and such
programs do not provide absolute minimum charge floors, discounted charges shall not be less than the absolute minimum charge floors provided
by this item. The charges provided herein are Central Transport’s standard (default) absolute minimum charge floors.
Except as otherwise provided in specific discount tariffs or contracts, the absolute minimum charge floors for US Intrastate, US Interstate,
Canadian Intra-provincial, Canadian Inter-provincial and US-Canadian International Traffic are as follows:
1.
US Interstate and US Intrastate Absolute Minimum Charge Floors (Mileage-Based):

ITEM 155 — DISCLAIMER REGARDING UNWRITTEN CONTRACTS
155
The rates and provisions named in this tariff and tariffs making reference to this tariff shall be applicable to all shipments and may not be negated
or superseded by any claimed contract that is written or unwritten, promise, representation or indicated understanding between the parties unless
such is in writing and signed by Central Transport’s Vice President of Pricing. No other representative of Central Transport is authorized to amend
or supersede this tariff.
Rates, rules and regulations negotiated with Central Transport which are not contained in any applicable tariff, pricing confirmation page or written
contract will become effective only upon the effective date of such tariff, pricing confirmation page or written contract between Central Transport
and its customer, once such document is created. Retroactive publication of provisions shall not be made to reflect any claimed unwritten contract
or agreement.
Note: This item has no application in connection with Central Transport’s assessment of charges for providing additional services in the normal
course of business. For example, if Central Transport performs a residential delivery service, then it has the right to bill and will bill the normal,
published accessorial charge for providing the service. Central Transport is entitled to receive compensation for providing special services
requested or required by shipper or consignee and will bill its published charges for such services whether or not shipper or consignee has
authorized such charges in writing. Written authorizations for such charges are not required.
ITEM 171 — BUMPING – APPLICATION OF CLASSES ─ ARTIFICIAL CONSTRUCTION OF DENSITY TO OBTAIN A LOWER CLASS
(EXCEPTION TO ITEM 171 OF STB NMF 100 SERIES)
“Bumping” is the declaration on the original Bill-of-Lading of an artificially higher weight for the purpose of causing a higher density that allows
the article, piece or shipment being “bumped” to qualify for a lower classification rating.
“Bumping” may be performed under the provisions in Item 171, STB NMF 100 Series (NMFC) subject to the following conditions:
(1)
“Bumping” provisions may only be used for commodity items in the NMFC that assign classes based upon density and then only for
those items that make specific reference to Item 171 in the NMFC.
(2)
Shipper may only “bump” to the next lower NMFC class or rating. “Bumping” to an exception or FAK (Freight All Kinds) class or
rating is not permitted. If “bumping” is requested on shipments on which an FAK or exception rating is provided in customer specific
pricing programs, the FAK or exception rating will not apply. Instead, the shipment will be classified and rated as provided in the
NMFC.
(3)
When the provisions of this rule are utilized, shipper must declare his intent to “bump” at the time of shipment and he must show the
following on the original Bill-of-Lading:
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
(e)
Actual Cube.
Actual Weight.
Density Group (NMFC Sub Item) Embracing the Actual Density.
Declared Density.
Declared Weight – Resultant Weight for Billing Purposes of the package(s) or piece(s) for which density is being bumped.

private tariffs published by shippers, tariffs published by competitive carriers, tariffs published by rate bureaus and historic, prior version and
expired tariffs including older versions of Central Transport’s own tariffs) and any such tariffs do not contain zip codes/postal codes or rates for
some combinations of origin-destination points (i.e., if a tariff has “holes” in it for geographic reasons, because it has not been updated to include
zip code/postal code changes, or for any other reason) then rating of shipments that were to be rated on such tariffs will instead be accomplished
by applying a 70.0% discount to the current version of Central Transport’s Tariff Central Transport Dyno (Series) series. Such shipments shall be
subject to a minimum charge of $80.00.
Note: These provisions pertaining to the application of a 70.0% discount subject to a minimum charge of $80.00 will apply only in connection with
customers having published pricing programs covering shipments tendered. The provisions will not in any way apply to customers without
published pricing programs. Shipments for customers without published pricing programs will be rated under Central Transport’s standard default
pricing provisions.
ITEM 176 — CURRENCIES APPLICABLE FOR INVOICING AND PAYMENTS
Rates and charges named or provided in this tariff are in U.S. Currency for shipments moving wholly within the U.S.A. and for shipments moving
between the U.S.A. and Canada. Rates and charges for Canadian Domestic Shipments are in Canadian Currency.

assessed per delivery as opposed to a charge per shipment. A valid email address or phone number must be notated on the bill-of-lading at the
time of Pick Up. Central Transport will contact the party via phone, email, fax, or voicemail as appropriated to schedule the appointment. If the

ITEM 345 — ARRIVAL NOTICE OR UNDELIVERED FREIGHT
ARRIVAL NOTICE:
345
1. Actual tender of delivery at consignee's place constitutes the notice of the arrival of a shipment.
2. If the shipment is not actually tendered for delivery, notice of arrival will be given to the consignee not later than the next business day
following the arrival of the shipment.
(a)
The notice will be given by telephone, if convenient and practicable, otherwise by mail or telegraph. The notice, however
transmitted, will specify the point of origin, the consignor, and the commodity and weight of shipment.
(b)
If the consignee's address is unknown to the carrier, the notice will be mailed to consignee at the post office serving the point of
destination shown on the bill-of-lading.
(c)
In the case of notification by mail, the notice will be deemed to have been given (that is, received by the addressee) at 8:00 AM on
the first business day after it was mailed.
UNDELIVERED FREIGHT:
1.
If freight cannot be delivered because of the consignee's refusal or inability to accept it, or because the carrier cannot locate the
consignee, or if freight cannot be transported because of an error of omission on the part of the consignor, the carrier will make diligent
effort to notify the consignor promptly that the freight is being held at its dock. Central Transport will issue a Courtesy Notice to
shipper/consignee that allows two business days for delivery arrangements to be made. The purpose of the courtesy notice is to allow
customers the opportunity to avoid storage charges and other charges by making prompt delivery arrangements. If delivery
arrangements are not made promptly as required, storage charges will begin to accrue at 7:00 am on the morning of the 2nd business
day following issuance of the Courtesy Notices.
2.
Undelivered shipments will be subject to applicable storage or detention charges.
3.
On undelivered shipments, disposition instructions issued prior to tender of delivery will not be accepted as authority to reship or return a
shipment or to limit storage liability.
4.
If shipments remain unclaimed/undelivered, a second more serious notice will be sent to shipper/consignee advising that after 15 days
the freight will be subject to disposal or sale.

Definition: Unclaimed/Abandoned Freight — Freight that has not been accepted or claimed by the consignee and for which no disposition
instructions has been provided by the owner.
NOTICE AND DISPOSITION OF PROPERTY
When carrier tenders freight at consignee’s place of business and such freight is refused or consignee is unable to accept delivery for any reason,
such freight shall be deemed unclaimed/abandoned freight. For shipments where carrier has been directed to hold freight at its dock for pick-up
by consignee or other party and such freight is not picked-up within 15 days of such direction, it shall be deemed unclaimed/abandoned freight,
regardless of whether or not carrier has issued a “Legal Notice of Undelivered Freight.” It is presumed that if carrier is directed to hold freight for
pick-up, the shipper/consignee giving such direction is aware of these provisions. Freight shall also be deemed unclaimed/abandoned whenever
carrier cannot deliver the freight because it cannot locate the consignee or because of any errors or omissions on the part of Shipper. Carrier shall
have a lien on all unclaimed or abandoned freight for all freight charges and storage and handling charges incurred and may sell or dispose of
such property in order to satisfy or partially satisfy is lien. The following provisions apply:

be effected, the carrier will so notify the shipper and consignee, by mail, at the addresses shown on the Bill-of-Lading. Upon written
instructions from the shipper, the carrier will return the shipment to the shipper, forward or re-consign it under a new Bill-of-Lading, or
otherwise dispose of it, all at the shipper's expense. If no such instructions are received within 15 days after the date of mailing such
notice, the carrier will dispose of it by public or private sale or disposal with no further liability to carrier.
Perishable Freight: When a perishable shipment is delayed in the possession of Carrier, or is unclaimed, refused, or threatened with
deterioration, Carrier shall have the right to immediately take such action as it deems reasonably necessary for the protection all parties
in interest, including rerouting the shipment by other means of transportation, or disposal of the shipment, at public or private sale or
disposal, absent instructions of Shipper to the contrary, without further notice to the shipper or consignee and with no further liability to
carrier.
Shipper & Consignee Remain Liable: No sale or disposal pursuant to this rule shall discharge any liability of lien to any greater extent
than the proceeds thereof, less selling expenses if any, and the shipper and consignee shall remain liable, jointly and severally, for any
deficiency. In all cases, Shipper and Consignee are responsible for all freight and storage charges regardless of freight disposition.

shipper supplied Bill-of-Lading referring to classifications and tariffs applicable at the time of shipment, shall not be
accepted. If carrier inadvertently accepts such Bill of Lading, the Bill of Lading shall serve the purpose of receipt for
commodities and identification of delivery location only and shall not serve as a contract for carriage. The terms and
conditions of the Uniform Straight Bill-of-Lading as published in NMF 100 series shall govern the movement of shipment.

NOTE 1:
Carriers are not obligated to furnish Bills-of-Lading containing information beyond that shown in the examples set forth in the NMFC.
NOTE 2:
Consignors may elect to have printed their own Bills-of-Lading, in which case, all requirements of Paragraphs 1 and 2 of this item
must be observed. These forms may also contain such information as: (1) identification or location of consignor or consignee; (2)
commodity description; (3) rates or classes; or (4) other information pertinent to the shipment.

ITEM 361 — BILLS-OF-LADING ─ FAK OR “FREIGHT ALL KINDS” SHIPMENTS
361
For his own protection and to allow for proper application of rates, the shipper must identify the specific commodity or product on the Bill-of-Lading
for all transportation moving under FAK or “Freight, All Kinds” rates. It is insufficient and unacceptable, for example, to describe freight on the Billof-Lading as “FAK 85 Freight.” If the shipper fails to identify the specific commodity or product, Central Transport will not be liable for any
damages to or destruction of the commodity or product resulting from it being on the same trailer with other freight that is either incompatible or is
prohibited by federal, state or local laws and regulations from being co-loaded on the same trailer with the product or commodity moving under the
FAK (“Freight, All Kinds”) rates.
ITEM 365 — MEXICAN SHIPMENTS — ADMINISTRATION FEE
365
For shipments ultimately destined to points in Mexico, Central Transport requires the following:
(1)
(2)
Consignor must provide broker/freight forwarder information on the original Bill-of-Lading at time of shipment.
Each shipment must be initially consigned to a U.S. Destination Address. This may be a distribution center, broker warehouse or
other point that carrier may deliver the freight to. The ultimate destination in Mexico should be noted in the body of the Bill-ofLading.
When broker/freight forwarder information is not provided on the original Bill-of-Lading, an administration fee of $25.00 (U.S. Dollars) will be
applied to the freight bill in addition to all other applicable charges. When broker information is not provided, carrier incurs additional
administration costs. Lack of broker information also causes delays; loss of transit times and customer relationship issues with ultimate
consignee’s who do not receive their shipments when expected.
ITEM 381 — METHOD OF CANCELLING PAGES
381
When revised pages amend this publication, the cancellation of prior pages will be effected by means of this rule. A revised page will not show a
cancellation notice except when a cancellation notice is necessary because of suspension, rejection, or other reason. Revisions of each page will
be published in numerical sequence.
Except where a specific cancellation is shown on a revised page, a revised page cancels any and all non-cancelled revised or original pages, or
non-cancelled portions thereof, which bear the same page number (SEE EXCEPTION).
EXAMPLES: 1ST REVISED PAGE 10 will have the effect of canceling ORIGINAL PAGE 10; 45TH REVISED PAGE 12 will have the effect of

B. Shipments occupying 28 lineal feet of trailer/container space or more will be subject to Central
Transport’s (TL) Truckload Fuel Surcharge.
Precedence of Rates: If more than one rate rule or provision from this tariff could be applied to the same shipment, the rule or provision that
produces the highest rate will apply. For example, if a shipment is subject to the cubic capacity provisions of Item 611 of this tariff and those
provisions produce a higher charge than the provisions of this Item 385 then the provisions of Item 611 shall take precedence over the provisions
of this Item 385 and charges produced by application of Item 611 provisions shall apply.
If carrier receives two or more shipments from one consignor, at one origin, destined to one or more consignees at the same delivery address,
during one calendar day, which if combined would result in application of this item, then the shipments in aggregate will be considered as one
shipment subject to the provisions of this item.
Any article, pallet or package that cannot have other freight loaded on top of it, either physically or by shipper’s instructions, will be considered to
be nine (9) feet in height when calculating cubic feet for application of this item
MILEAGE: - Miles will be determined according to mileage in PC Miler.
Each vehicle or trailer loaded to capacity will be subject to the 20 lineal feet - $2.50 per mile charge above.
OVERFLOW - When the rate per mile or minimum charge is applied, the charge for that portion of the shipment loaded into the last trailer or
vehicle (not loaded to capacity) will be rated as a separate shipment.
MEXICO: Each vehicle or trailer loaded to capacity will be subject to the applicable provisions herein so far as the portion of movement within the
United States to or from the border gateway point is concerned. Then, in addition, the applicable charges from Central Transport Tariff 799 will be
applicable for the Mexican portion of the movement and the total applicable charge will be calculated as a combination of rates. If the otherwise
applicable rate and charge produces a higher charge than the rate per cwt or minimum charge, the otherwise applicable rate and charge will
apply.
DISCOUNT NON-APPLICATION – Shipments subject to the rate per mile or minimum charge in this item will NOT be subject to any otherwise
applicable adjustments or discounts.
Shipments subject to re-consignment: That portion of the freight charges from the re-consignment point to the final destination will be subject
to the rate per mile, subject to a Minimum Charge of $200.00. If the otherwise applicable charge produces a higher charge the provisions of this
item will NOT apply.

ITEM 410 — 3PL’S — SPECIAL TERMS, CONDITIONS AND REQUIREMENTS
The provisions contained in this item govern Central Transport’s business relationships with 3PL’s (Third-Party Logistics Providers) in connection
with generic pricing programs published for those companies. A ‘generic pricing program’ as contrasted to a ‘client-specific pricing program’ is one

loss or damage claims arising out of services arranged for by 3PL for which liability exceeds limitations stated in either the National
Motor Freight Classification and/or Carrier’s applicable Rules Tariff and/or for which packaging requirements are not met.
5.
PAYMENT FOR TRANSPORTATION: In the event 3PL invoices shippers for transportation services and in turn receives payment for
transportation services, 3PL shall pay carrier as follows:
410
A. Payments: 3PL assures that all payments due to carrier providing transportation shall be paid not later than THIRTY (30)
days following receipt of the motor carrier’s invoice.
B. Covenant of Trust: 3PL covenants and represents that 3PL shall segregate and maintain all amounts due motor carrier
for transportation purchased from the motor carrier by sequestering those funds immediately as the funds of the carrier and
such funds shall be the funds of the motor carrier and not of the 3PL and shall be treated in a manner similar to the interline
trust fund doctrine.
C. Indemnification for freight charges: : 3PL agrees to indemnify, defend and hold carrier, shipper or consignee harmless
from and against all claims by and against Carrier arising from the failure to 3PL to pay motor carrier.

For purpose of determining the rates of exchange for shipments between the United States and those countries listed the following will apply:
CANADA
The rate of exchange quoted for New York funds by the Bank of Montreal, in the last of each month will govern for the period from the
first to the fourteenth (inclusive) of the following month; similarly, such quotations at noon on the fourteenth will govern for the period
from the fifteenth to the last day (inclusive) of such month. Should the governing date fall on a Saturday, Sunday, or Canadian or United
States legal holiday, the quotation at noon of the preceding day will govern.
MEXICO
The rate of exchange in effect on Monday of each week as quoted by Banco De Mexico will govern for shipments picked up for the
period Monday through Sunday of each day subsequent to and including the effective date of the quote. Should the governing day
(Monday) fall on a day where no exchange rate is quoted by Banco De Mexico, the exchange rate in effect for the preceding quoted day
will govern.
During any base period as defined above, if the daily exchange rate differs from the base rate by plus or minus two or more percent, the
daily rate of exchange will then become the applicable base rate for the remainder of the period. The governing data for the application
of the rate of exchange for shipments between the U.S. and those countries listed above will be the date of the pickup of the shipment.

ITEM 460 — OVERCHARGE AND DUPLICATE PAYMENT CLAIMS
PROCEDURES GOVERNING PROCESSING, INVESTIGATION AND DISPOSITION:
The provisions herein are similar to but differ in some significant ways from the provisions provided in the NMFC 100 Series, Items 300201,
300202 and 300203. The provisions herein take precedence over and expand upon those items.
Application:
The provisions set forth herein govern the processing of claims by Central Transport for overcharges and duplicate payments for the transportation
of property in interstate or foreign commerce by Central Transport.
Definitions:
(a)
“Overcharge,” means an overcharge as defined in Sections 204a (6) and 406a (6) of the Interstate Commerce Act. It also includes
duplicate payments as defined in paragraph (b),
(b)
“Duplicate Payment” means two or more payments for transporting the same shipment.
i. In the event customer has open freight bills, duplicate payments shall be applied against open freight bills.
ii. When one or more payments is not in the exact amount of the applicable tariff rates and charges, and there are no open
freight bills, refunds shall be made on the basis of the excess amount over applicable tariff rates and charges.
(c)
“Claimant” means any shipper or receiver, or its authorized agent, filing a request with Central Transport for the refund of an
overcharge and/or duplicate payment.
Filing and Processing of Claims:
(a)
A claim for overcharge or duplicate payment shall not be paid unless filed in writing or electronically communicated by using
Central Transport’s standard form for presentation of overcharge claims (when agreed to by the carrier and shipper or receiver
involved) with the carrier that collected the transportation charges. The collecting carrier shall be the carrier to process all such
claims. When a claim is filed with another carrier that participated in the transportation, that carrier shall transmit the claim to the
collecting carrier within fifteen (15) days after receipt of the claim. If the collecting carrier is unable to dispose of the claim for any
reason the claim may be filed with or transferred to any participating carrier for final disposition.
(b)
A single claim may include more than one shipment provided the claim on each shipment involves (1) the same tariff issue or
authority or circumstances, (2) single line service by the same carrier, or (3) service by the same interline carriers. The ICC
Termination Act of 1995 amended the Interstate Commerce Act by adding 49 U.S.C. 13710 (a)(3)(B) as follows: “If a shipper seeks
to contest the charges originally billed or additional charges subsequently billed, the shipper may request that the Board determine
whether the charges billed must be paid. A shipper must contest the original bill or subsequent bill within 180 days of receipt of the
bill in order to have the right to contest such charges.
Central Transport Specific Exceptions and Methods of Payment:
(a)
In all cases of claims filed with Central Transport for overcharges and/or duplicate payments and shipper or receiver (debtor) of the
specific shipments involved has open invoices with Central Transport that are past pay terms, Central Transport will offset
amounts determined due in such cases against outstanding amounts receivable from shipper or receiver (debtor).
(b)
If a shipper or consignee (debtor) wishes to contest a freight bill he must do so within 180 days of its receipt of the freight bill. For
purposes of this tariff and for claims filed with Central Transport, shippers or consignee’s (debtor’s) receipt of the freight bill shall be
deemed to be the earlier of the actual date of receipt or 10 days after the delivery date of the freight.
Inclusion of NMFC Provisions by Reference:
In addition to the specific provisions contained herein applicable specifically in connection with Central Transport LLC, in exception to NMFC
provisions, all other provisions of the NMFC are applicable hereto and contained herein by reference thereto.
Claim Filing – Minimum Allowable Claim = $10.00:
Overcharge and Duplicate payment claims for less than $10.00 will not be honored. Administrative costs of filing and following-up on such claims
would normally exceed the amount of recovery for the customer. Carrier’s position is that filing and processing such claims is not economically
prudent for any of the parties. Thus, if such claims are received by Carrier they will be declined pursuant to this item and considered closed.

possession of the carrier, the carrier will, if possible, intercept the shipment and convert it to exclusive use of vehicle service over as
much of the route as possible. The party making the request must confirm in writing and must guarantee charges. Such written

If after receipt of the shipment by the carrier and while enroute, the shipper requests stopping in transit in a different order of unloading
or loading than as received and specified on the bill of lading the aggregate mileage of the new route of movement shall apply.
Additional labor required to unload, shift around, or reload the freight to accomplish out-of-sequence deliveries will be charged per
Item 560, which charges shall be in addition to all other charges.
If the route of movement by virtue of the content of hazardous materials, or because of being overweight and/or over dimension, the
closing or prohibition of use of bridges, tunnels, or highway sections requires a longer route prescribed by the Public Authority,
charges based on mileages of the required longer route shall apply.

direct shipments originating from and destined to all carrier direct points.

time that will override the time designated on BOL due to the ‘Call for Appointment’ designation. In the case of the delivery falls outside
the time frame on the BOL due to consignee’s decision to accept earlier or later, Central Transport will not reimburse nor deem
shipment late under the provisions of the Guaranteed Standard Delivery or Guaranteed Next Day By Noon Delivery.

of God, acts or omissions of public authority, riots, strikes or labor disputes, including those of third parties, government regulations,
orders or requirements, disruption in ground transportation as a result of weather or other causes, acts of public enemy’s or acts of

ITEM 570 — IMPRACTICABLE OPERATIONS
570
Pick up or delivery service will not be performed by the carrier at any site from or to which it is impracticable to operate vehicles because of:
(a)
(b)
(c)
The condition of roads, streets, driveways, alleys or approaches thereto;
Inadequate loading or unloading facilities;

ITEM 572 — SHIPMENTS RATED USING COMBINATION RATES
572
Shipments Destined to: Alaska, Mexico, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S Virgin Islands and Other Offshore Points
All shipments handled by Central Transport destined to points located in Alaska, Mexico, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and
other offshore points, shall be rated using ‘combination rates.’ No shipments to any of the aforementioned points shall be rated on ‘through rates’
regardless of whether such rates appear in individual rate base tariffs or not.
Shipments to points listed above are served in combination with other carriers whose rates are not discounted. Such rates plus any administrative
fees are from points of interchange to final destinations are added to Central Transport’s charges for the portions of movements from origins to the
interchange points and then any applicable fuel surcharges and accessorial charges are added to determine total charges for shipments destined
to such points.
Example:
Assume a shipment is tendered to Central Transport in Chicago, IL with final destination in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The shipment will be rated
using a combination of rates as follows:
1. Charge from Chicago, IL to Jacksonville, FL (or other point of interchange) will be determined.
2. Charge from Jacksonville, FL (or other point of interchange) to destination in San Juan, Puerto Rico will be determined.
3. Charges determined in steps 1 and 2 will be added together to yield a subtotal and any applicable fuel surcharges and accessorial
charges will be added to the subtotal. The result will be the total charge applicable to the shipment.
Rates & Charges for the movement of freight beyond interchange points are available from Central Transport upon request. Quotations provided
by Central Transport for shipments destined to any points outlined herein reflect rate and charge calculations as described herein.
Note: Combination rates do not apply to points located on Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket Island, MA. Such points, although ‘offshore’ in a
sense, are typically considered part of the contiguous United States and rated using ‘through rates’ however, shipments to such points are subject
to ‘High Cost Area’ charges pursuant to Item 751-05 of this tariff.

Item
ITEM 575-D — FUEL SURCHARGE PROGRAM – NETShown below are the fuel surcharge percentages that Central Transport will apply to net freight charges. The surcharges are dependent on shipments' origins and destinations
and based on the U.S. National Average, West Coast or California Diesel Fuel Index as applicable, published by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE). The fuel indices are updated and available after 4:00 PM Eastern Central Time each Monday by telephone at (202) 586-6966 or at the DOE
website http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/oog/info/wohdp/diesel_detail_report_combined.asp. The fuel indices provided by the DOE are the industry standards used by most
transportation companies. Central Transport’s applicable surcharges become effective on the Wednesday immediately following each Monday unless Monday is a Holiday
and then the fuel index is available from the DOE on Tuesday and Central Transport’s surcharges become effective on the immediately following Thursday.
Central Transport's Fuel Surcharges vary geographically as follows: 1) Surcharges applicable to shipments moving within the State of California (Intrastate) are based on the
California Fuel Index. 2) Surcharges applicable to shipments moving within or between all other states within the West Coast Petroleum Administration for Defense District
(PADD) as defined by the EIA are based on the 'West Coast' Fuel Index. This includes but is not limited to shipments moving between California and the other states in the
West Coast PADD on an interstate basis. The West Coast PADD is defined as the geographic area consisting of the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada,
Oregon and Washington 3) Surcharges for all other shipments are based on the U.S. National Average Diesel Fuel Index.

In Connection with class rated shipments and LTL commodity rated shipments the following will apply:
Section 1. On mixed shipments of differently rated commodities (commodities subject to different rates), alternation of
charges resulting from the application of rates provided for different weight groups is to be
determined by applying the lower of the charges resulting from:
(a)
The rate applicable to the actual weight of each article in the mixture; or
(b)
The actual weight of each article in the mixture at the rate provided for each article on the higher weight group that
would apply for the aggregate weight of the shipment, plus a charge for deficit weight at the lowest rate applicable to
any article in the shipment. The term deficit refers to the additional shipment weight necessary to meet the minimum
requirements for use of the rate provided for the next higher weight group.
Section 2. Maximum Percentage of Mixture
(a) When rates provide for a maximum percentage of an article that may be included in the mixed shipment and a greater
percentage is included, the rates will apply on the restricted article, up to the allowable percentage. The excess over the
allowable percentage for any article is to be rated as a separate shipment.
(b) When there are two or more differently rated commodities subject to the same maximum percentage restriction, the
allowable percentage shall consist of the lowest rated article or commodities necessary to make up the percentage.
(c)
When percentage limitations are separately provided on different commodities, rates will apply on each article up to and including
the allowable percentage.

(a)
The applicable minimum weight will be the highest provided for any article in the shipment.
(b)
Any deficit in the minimum weight will be charged for at the lowest rate applicable to any article in the shipment.
Section 2: When the aggregate charge upon the entire shipment is made lower by considering the commodities as if they were divided into two
or
more separate truckload or volume shipments, the shipment will be charged for accordingly.
Section 3. When the total charge on the shipment is lower by applying the TL or VOL rate and minimum weight or actual weight, if greater,
for one or more commodities and the LTL rate and actual weight for the remainder, such charge will apply, subject to the following:
(a)
The LTL rates to be assessed are those that would apply if the LTL portion were considered as a separate shipment.
(b)
The weight of the portion assessed LTL rates may not be applied towards the TL or VOL minimum weight.

percentage is included, the rates will apply on the restricted article up to the allowable percentage. Commodities which exceed the
allowable percentage will be subject to the following:
(a)
When there are two or more differently rated commodities subject to the same maximum percentage restriction, the
allowable percentage shall consist of the lowest rated article or commodities necessary to make up the percentage.
(b)

consignee at actual cost of the service plus a 15 percent service charge. These charges shall be in addition to all other applicable
charges and shall be shown separately on the freight bill.
(d)
Shipments requiring overweight bonds or over dimensional permits the actual cost plus a 10 percent service charge of the bond or
permit for each state or city shall be added onto the freight bill subject to a minimum charge of $58.00 for each bond or permit.
When the permit specifies route of the movement that shall be used in transporting the shipment, all tolls or fees paid by carrier for

most practical route, mileage and charges will be computed over an alternate route selected by the customer paying the freight
charges. In the absence of a route selected by the customer, carrier will route the load and mileage will be computed over the
carrier-selected route.
OVER-LENGTH LTL FREIGHT:
(a)
Over-length LTL Freight means LTL Freight commodities or packaging that exceeds 12 feet in length.
(b)
When carrier agrees to handle over-length freight, shipments containing one or more articles that exceeds12 feet in length, but

skids or shipping containers, such pallets, platforms, racks, reels, skids shipping carriers or containers constitute an integral part of the
shipments and are to be delivered to and receipted for by the consignee(s) named on the bill of lading covering the loaded movement.
(2)
Any request or provision noted on the Bill of Lading or Shipping Order at the time of shipment requesting the return of these pallets,
platforms, racks, reels, skids or shipping carriers or containers (See NOTE A) shall be deemed to be for information purposes only, and it
will not be binding upon the carrier to accomplish or comply with such request or provision to complete the contract of carriage.
GENERAL EXCEPTIONS:
NOTE A: This item will not apply on marine type or intermodal containers designed for highway use on wheels.
ITEM 712 — PALLETS, ETC., RETURN OF

ITEM 714 — FCCOD FEE — FREIGHT CHARGE COLLECT ON DELIVERY FEE FOR SHIPMENTS DESTINED TO OFFSHORE POINTS
All shipments destined to offshore service points including but not limited to, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, on a Collect basis, will be subject to
application of a $20.00 “Freight Charge Collect on Delivery Fee.”
In view of this fee on collect shipments, shippers of freight destined to offshore points are encouraged to ship on a prepaid basis to avoid the fee
as such shipments are exempt from the fee described in this Item. This fee is not to be confused or misconstrued as a conventional COD fee that
carrier would charge when engaged to collect funds for shippers pursuant to shippers’ invoices for goods.
Pursuant to provisions outlined in Items 110 and 720 of this tariff, consignors (shippers) and other parties are liable jointly and severally for all
charges if the consignee or other party primarily responsible for payment fails to pay. In such cases, additional charges including all collection
costs and attorneys' fees may also be applicable. Hence, for example, if a shipper tenders a shipment on a collect basis to Puerto Rico and the
charges are not collectible from the consignee, then the shipper will be responsible for payment of all charges. Section 7 provisions provided on
some Bills-of-Lading shall have no application and will not be honored.

ITEM 779 — LIABILITY LIMITS — GENERAL APPLICATION AND SCOPE
Central Transport, like other LTL carriers, assumes a stated level of liability for loss and/damage to shipments it handles. Central Transport’s rules
and provisions addressing liability limits, prohibited articles, used articles and a description of the process and requirements for claim filing are
included in Items 780 through 790 of this tariff or as otherwise provided in customer-specific contracts or other customer-specific tariffs or pricing
agreements.
779
It is important for customers of Central Transport to read and become familiar with all of the content of Items 780 through 790 as liability limits vary
depending on attributes of shipments including but not limited to type of commodity, NMFC classes, exception ratings, type of pricing program
(pallet program, spot-quotes, other), risk of theft or damage and whether commodities are new or used, reconditioned, remanufactured or
refurbished.
Definition: ‘Used Commodities’ — are defined as any commodities with prior use, including but not limited to restored, refurbished and
remanufactured commodities as well as factory warranty returns. Also included are any commodities that have been set-up and operated,
including any commodity that has been used for the commodity’s stated purpose or to demonstrate the performance or merits of a product (as an
automobile, x-ray machine, lathe, television) to prospective buyers. Stock transfers and returns to vendors of new and unused commodities
(overstocks) do not fall under this definition.
General Application of Central Transport Liability Assumption:
In general Central Transport’s liability assumption applies exclusively to commodities for which Central Transport has specifically agreed to handle
for each specific customer and for which Central Transport has entered into contractual agreements to handle or otherwise established customerspecific pricing for. It is understood by Shipper and Carrier that Carrier’s pricing established for Shipper is based on its analysis of risk associated
with the type of commodities that Shipper would normally tender to carrier and that Carrier’s liability assumption, if provided under terms other
those specifically stated herein, shall extend to those commodities only. If Shipper tenders to Carrier any other commodity or type of commodity
not revealed to carrier during pricing negotiations and carrier inadvertently accepts such shipment for handling, Carrier’s liability assumption on
such items shall not ever exceed the liability limitations provided by provisions of this tariff.
Examples:
1)
A Shipper who is a manufacturer of automotive parts has negotiated with Carrier to handle its outbound shipments of commodities it
manufactures and its inbound shipments of raw materials used to manufacture its products. Shipper and Carrier have agreed to a
standard liability limit of $10.00 per pound per piece subject to a $100,000.00 maximum per incident for handling these types of
commodities. Carrier’s liability applies to these types of commodities only. If Shipper tenders to carrier a shipment of plant equipment
(let’s say a large stamping press) whether it be new or used, carriers liability limit of $10.00 per pound does not apply to this shipment.
Rather, Carrier’s liability limits as stated in this tariff will apply. If the shipment consists of a used piece of equipment such as the
stamping press example, carrier’s liability will be $0.10 per pound as providing by Item 790 of this tariff.
2)
A Shipper who manufactures wheelbarrows and has negotiated a pricing arrangement with Carrier to handle wheelbarrows at $8.00 per
pound diversifies by purchasing a power tool manufacturing company and begins shipping power tools. Central Transport’s $8.00 per
liability limit will not apply to the power tools. In the absence of any further pricing negotiations to establish an agreed upon liability limit
for power tools, Central Transport’s liability limit on power tools would be as provided by Item 789 of this tariff for commodities with high
risk of theft or damage (maximum of $2.00 per pound per piece unless otherwise further limited by other provisions).

Section 3. ACCEPTABLE COMMODITIES of EXTRAORDINARY VALUE:
Except as provided in Section 1 above, commodities of extraordinary value, as defined below, will be accepted for shipment or as premiums
accompanying other commodities, providing the shipper requests that carrier assume additional liability in exchange for consideration as provided
below:
(1) Commodities tendered in the US with an invoice value exceeding $10.00 (US$) per pound per piece or $2.00 (CAN$) per pound per
piece for commodities tendered in Canada will be considered to be of extraordinary value. Such commodities will not be accepted
for transportation unless the shipper requests carrier to assume additional liability in exchange for a higher charge. Commodities
inadvertently accepted with an invoice value exceeding $10.00 (US$) per pound per piece if tendered in the US or $2.00 (CAN$) per
pound per piece if tendered in Canada, but without additional liability assumption by carrier will be considered released by the
shipper at $10.00 (US$) per pound per piece or $2.00 (CAN$) per pound per piece respectfully.
(2) In the event of loss of and/or damage to any shipment, carrier’s liability for shipments originating in the US will not exceed $10.00
(US$) per pound per piece, subject to a maximum liability of $100,000.00 (US$) per incident, unless the shipper has requested
excess liability assumption. For shipments originating in Canada the corresponding limits are $2.00 (CAN$) per pound per piece
subject to a maximum liability of $20,000.00 (CAN$) per incident. The “per incident” language means that the total pool of funds to
be disbursed to multiple claimants relative to a single incident shall not exceed the maximum of $100,000.00 (US$) or $20.000.00
(CAN$) as the case may be. The total of all funds distributed relating to a single “incident” will never exceed the maximums stated
herein.

(3) Excess Liability Assumption: If a shipper desires to tender a shipment requiring carrier liability in excess of $10.00 (US$) per
pound per piece or $2.00 (CAN$) per pound per piece, shipper should see Item 783, paragraph (4) of this tariff for applicable
charges. The maximum TOTAL LIABILITY ASSUMPTION available will be the lesser of (a) $25.00 (US$) for shipments originating
in the US or $17.00 (CAN$) per pound per piece for shipments originating in Canada or (b) $100,000.00 (US$) per incident or
$20,000.00 (CAN$) whichever is lower for shipments originating in the US or Canada respectfully. Total Carrier liability assumption
is the sum of carrier’s standard liability assumption plus any excess liability assumption.
Section 4. Freight Liable to Damage Other Freight or Equipment:
Carriers are not obligated to receive freight liable to impregnate or otherwise damage other freight or carrier’s equipment. Such freight may be
accepted and receipted for subject to delay for suitable equipment or may, for lack of suitable equipment, be refused.
Note 1:
United States Mail will be accepted when the consignor and consignee are United States Post Offices.
Note 2:
Except U. S. Internal Revenue Distilled Spirits Stamps, which will be accepted in truckload or volume Shipments only.

The term package as used in this item means any primary shipping package authorized by the provisions of individual tariffs or
classification items. When a number of packages have been unitized, strapped or otherwise fastened together, or contained on pallets,
platforms or skids, or have been over packed in an additional complying package, the carriers liability will be determined by separately
multiplying the invoice value times the weight of each individual package lost or damaged and not on the basis of the weight of the total
number of packages unitized, strapped or otherwise fastened together or contained on pallets, platforms or skids, or over packed in an
additional complying package.

ITEM 781 — CLAIM FILING — MINIMUM ALLOWABLE CLAIM = $35.00
Cargo Claims for less than $35.00 will not be honored. Administrative costs of filing and following-up on such claims would normally exceed the
amount of recovery for the customer. Carrier’s position is that filing and processing such claims is not economically prudent for any of the parties.
Thus, if such claims are received by carrier they will be declined pursuant to this item and considered closed.
Note: If a cargo claim is filed for more than $35.00, however Carrier liability is deemed to be less than $35.00; such claim(s) will be declined

You must obtain a written authorization accompanied by an acceptance log number from the Central Transport’s Claims
Department prior to tendering the shipment for pick-up.
(2)
The acceptance log number must be written on the original Bill-of-Lading.
(3)
If the acceptance log number is not shown on the Bill-of-Lading the shipment will move under Central Transport’s standard liability limits.
(4)
Central Transport is not, under any circumstances, an insurance company or insurance provider. Central Transport does not sell insurance
coverage on cargo it transports. Central Transport does assume liability up to the limits stated herein for cargo it handles. In addition and in
exchange for higher transportation charges, Central Transport will assume higher levels of liability up to but not beyond its stated maximums.
The rules and charges herein govern how customers must make requests for such additional carrier liability assumption and what the
additional charges will be for such higher levels.
IN NO EVENT SHALL CENTRAL TRANSPORT, ITS AFFILIATES OR ITS INTERLINE SERVICE PROVIDERS BE LIABLE IN ANY WAY
FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST BUSINESS OR LOST
PROFITS.
(5)
(6)
When Central Transport handles shipments in connection with other carriers (either air, motor, water or rail), Central Transport’s maximum
liability in the event of loss or damage will in no case exceed the maximum liability of the other carrier. For example, if a carrier’s maximum
liability is limited to $100.00 per shipment, the maximum carrier liability of that carrier and Central Transport will not exceed $100.00 for the
shipment.
(7)
When carrier performs a cross-dock service on behalf of a customer to load containers for subsequent movement with a water carrier, liability
for any claims shall be limited to $0.10 per pound per piece or actual loss, whichever is less.
(8)
Missing, Incomplete or Incorrect Commodity Descriptions on Shipper Completed Bills-of-Lading:
If Shipper or Shipper’s Agent has elected to supply and complete his own Bill-of-Lading or to complete a Uniform Straight Bill-of-Lading or a
Bill-of-Lading form provided by carrier for shipper completion and fails to provide a freight description or a complete freight description or
describes the freight incorrectly on the Bill-of-Lading (misrepresentation) or uses a description of ‘FAK’ or ‘Freight All Kinds’ or other language
that does not properly identify the commodities shipped and then subsequently files a claim for shortage or damage, Carrier’s liability will be
determined as follows:
(a)
Failure to provide a description or providing an incomplete description:
In cases of incomplete or missing descriptions, Carrier’s liability will be limited to the lesser of its maximum liability per pound
per piece for NMFC Class 50 freight and any other limitations that may be applicable.
(b) Freight is described incorrectly (misrepresentation):
Carrier shall be absolved of any freight claim liability. Falsification of freight descriptions by shippers for purposes of securing
lower pricing or for any reason whatsoever shall void the Bill-of-Lading Contract of Carriage and release Carrier from freight
claim liability. For example, if a shipper tenders a crate of expensive alloy assemblies described as ‘scrap iron’ and later files
a claim for loss or damage, the carrier shall have no liability and claim will be denied.
(c)
Freight is described as ‘FAK’ or ‘Freight All Kinds’ with exception class provided but no further description:
i.)
If shipment is a total loss (meaning freight was lost or stolen and not available for determination of actual class),
Carrier’s liability shall be limited to its maximum liability per pound per piece for NMFC Class 50 freight. ‘FAK’
exception ratings are established for rating purposes only and have no direct bearing on the actual class of specific
shipments. ‘FAK’ ratings are normally established based on the weighted average class of a multiple number of
shipments and therefore the ‘FAK’ rating does not imply the actual class of a specific shipment. An ‘FAK 70 rating,’
for example, could apply to actual classes 50 through 125. Thus, without a specific commodity word description on
the Bill-of-Lading as required by Item 360 of the NMFC, Carrier’s liability will be limited to its maximum liability per
pound per piece for NMFC Class 50 freight.
ii.)
If shipment is not a total loss, Carrier’s liability will be based on the lower of the rated or actual class. If actual class
cannot be determined then Carrier’s liability will be based on Class 50.
NOTE: In any of the scenarios described above where Carrier’s liability is based on NMFC Class 50, Carrier’s liability may be further limited
by other limitations described in this tariff if applicable. For example, if shipper fails to provide a commodity word description and a damage
claim is filed and it is determined that the commodity shipped is ‘used’ or ‘other than new’ then Carrier’s liability may be limited to $0.10 per
pound per piece by Item 790 of this tariff.

ITEM 788 — CLAIM FILING — PROCESS AND REQUIREMENTS
In the event a freight claim needs to be filed, forms can be obtained by calling your local service center, local sales representative, Claims
Prevention Department (586-939-7000), or directly from our web site www.centraltransport.com under Manage Shipments/File Claim. Claims for
damages valued at $500.00 or more require an inspection to be made prior to filing using the Cargo Loss And Damage Claim Long Form.
Inspection by Central Transport LLC or an independent agent will typically be performed within 20-48 hours after receipt of request. Inspection will
include examination of the damaged merchandise and the shipping container. The inspection will be limited to a factual report and normally be
accompanied with pictures. A written record of Inspector’s findings will be made in duplicate with a copy of the report given to the consignee. The
inspection report is NOT a claim. To expedite the claim process it is the responsibility of the claimant to file a cargo claim within prescribed time
limits and to respond back immediately to any requests from Central Transport LLC for supporting documentation. The claim will be concluded
based on facts determined during the investigation. NOTE – Central Transport’s maximum liability is $10.00 per pound U.S. / $2.00 per pound
Canadian on new material and $0.10 per pound on used material.

TIME LIMIT FOR INSTITUTING LAWSUITS AGAINST CARRIER:
Lawsuits instituted against carrier shall be instituted no later than two years and one day from the day when carrier gave written notice to claimant
that it disallowed its claim or part thereof. When suits are instituted after this time period, carrier shall have no cargo claim liability.
REPLACEMENT SHIPMENT POLICY:
Any freight charge reimbursement in connection with claims will be based on the original freight bill. Any freight bill for a replacement shipment is
considered a new freight bill for a new shipment and should be treated as such and paid by debtor. Reimbursement of freight charges or fraction
thereof will only be reimbursed to the debtor.
The freight charge for a shipment is part of the cost of the goods. Sometimes the freight charges are even born directly into the cost of the goods.
Therefore if a replacement shipment were to move without charges the customer could receive a double reimbursement (payment in the claim
amount and non-payment of the replacement bill).
In view of the above, payments of freight charges are expected for all replacement shipments. If a customer makes a second shipment to replace
a shipment involved in an over, short or damage situation, the replacement shipment is considered a new and independent shipment. If a
customer thinks reimbursement of charges is merited in connection with a replacement shipment, then such should be stated on or amended to
the freight claim based on the original freight bill.
Central Transport will fully investigate claims filed for concealed, shortage or damage. These claims will be handled based on the individual merits
of each. Delivery notations such as “Subject to Inspection” are not delivery notations and these delivery receipts will be considered clear and
without exception,
In the event damage occurs while in possession of Carrier, and repair, etc. is required, claimant must provide carrier with an itemized bill
documenting the necessary work. The following compensation will be provided to claimant for cost of repair, etc., which includes reasonable
overhead cost. Maximum allowable hourly rate: Professional (Licensed or Certified) $50.00 per hour, Non-Professional (All non-licensed or
certified) $20.00 per hour.
CENTRAL TRANSPORT Specific Exceptions and Methods of Payment:
(a)
In all cases of claims filed with Central Transport for and shipper or receiver (debtor) of the specific shipments involved has open
invoices with Central Transport that are more than 60 days old, Central Transport will offset amounts determined due in such cases
against outstanding amounts receivable from shipper or receiver (debtor).

In general, commodities which are subject to released or declared value provisions in the National Motor Freight Classification, or any subsequent
classification applicable to released valuation rates which are in effect on the date of issuance of a Bill-of-Lading, shall be considered to be

Notwithstanding the general rule above and in addition to that rule, the specific commodities listed herein are considered by Central Transport
to be released to a maximum value of $2.00 per pound per piece even if the NMFC has no specific released valuation provisions for them.
These commodities, in exception to any provisions in the NMFC or other tariffs or declarations by shippers on Bills-of-Lading shall never move at a
valuation higher than $2.00 per pound per piece. Carrier’s maximum liability on these items may be further restricted depending on NMFC Class

Central Transport will not accept shipments of “used”, “reconditioned”, “remanufactured” or “refurbished” commodities unless the shipper releases
them to a value not exceeding ten (10) cents per pound per piece.
Definition: ‘USED COMMODITIES’ — are defined as any commodities with prior use, including but not limited to restored, refurbished and

including any commodity that has been used for the commodity’s stated purpose or to demonstrate the performance or merits of a product (as an
automobile, x-ray machine, lathe, television) to prospective buyers.
(1)
Shipments of used machines or machinery must be crated to protect all surfaces and protrusions. Uncrated machinery will not be

ITEM 897 — SPOT PRICING RULES AND CONDITIONS
897
Definition/Perspective: “Spot Pricing” quotations are generally price quotations that cover one shipment or several shipments moving during a
relatively short period of time. They differ from published pricing programs that remain in effect for extended periods of up to a year or more. Spot
quotes are provided in response to requests from customers who shop for low prices in the “spot market.” The spot market exists because
carriers are willing to offer aggressive pricing to attract freight to their low volume and unbalanced traffic lanes. Because carriers’ needs change
frequently, spot quotes are normally valid for only short periods of time. A customer that calls for a quote on one day and finds the price very
attractive might call a week later and find the carrier no longer offering spot quotes on the lane at that time or maybe quoting a price much different
than the price of a week earlier. That’s the nature of the spot market. In order to quote the lowest possible prices in this market, carriers normally
reduce their bundle of services below that provided at no additional cost under more compensatory pricing programs. For example, a carrier might
not offer daily service on a low volume lane. Thus, in connection with offering a low price, he doesn’t commit to a fixed transit time. The shipment
will move when equipment is available. Customers receive a basic “no-frills” service package for a low price.
Rules and Conditions:
(1) Consignor must write the Quote Number issued by Carrier on the original Bill-of-Lading for the Spot Pricing Quotation/Agreement to apply.
If it is not written on the Bill-of-Lading, the quote will not apply and otherwise applicable rates will apply.
(2)
Carrier’s liability shall not exceed $0.50 per pound per piece subject to a maximum of $5,000.00 per incident.
(3)
Prorating: If the actual shipment parameters (weight, pallets, cube) exceed any of the stated parameters provided by the consignor in
obtaining the quote, the additional amount of pallets, weight or trailer space will be prorated at whichever factor has the greatest affect on
the charges. For example if consignor is quoted for one pallet, 5,000 pounds but actually ships two pallets 5,500 pounds, the rate quoted
will be doubled (two pallets versus one produces the highest prorated charge) and shipment will be rated accordingly.
(4)
Shipments moving under spot quotes/agreements will move when equipment is available and carrier is not committed to standard or fixed
transit times. Transit time is not guaranteed and will depend solely on availability of equipment.
(5)
Fuel surcharges will be applied at the rates in effect at the time of shipment pursuant to Item 575 of this tariff.
(6)
Unless otherwise noted in specific quotations/agreements, carrier’s normal rules and accessorial charges apply in their entirety. Any
special and/or additional services beyond normal transportation services provided under these rules will be charged for at standard
prevailing rates provided herein.
(7)
Spot Pricing Quotations (Quote Numbers) are valid for 48 hours from the date issued and/or shown on any pricing agreement issued.

ITEM 900 — STOPPING OF TRUCKLOAD SHIPMENTS FOR PARTIAL LOADING AND/OR PARTIAL UNLOADING
GENERAL APPLICATION:
Except as otherwise provided herein, shipments subject to truckload rates and truckload minimum weights, received from one shipper at one point
at one time for one consignee at one destination and covered by one Bill of Lading, may be stopped for partial loading and/or partial unloading,
subject to the following provisions:
1.
2.
STOP-OFFS PERMITTED:
A.
After initial pickup stop at origin and prior to final delivery stop at destination, a shipment may be stopped for the purpose of picking up
or delivering component parts of a single shipment at origin, at points enroute to destination, or at destination.
B.
Pickup or delivery service may be performed at additional loading or unloading sites at origin, destination or intermediate stopoff points
within the continuous plant property or premises of the party receiving the service provided the pickup or delivery sites are not
intersected by more than one public thoroughfare. A vehicle transfer charge of $85.00 will be assessed for each transfer of a vehicle
from one loading or unloading site to another. Pickup or delivery service between loading or unloading site separated by more than one
public thoroughfare will be governed by other stop off provisions in this term.
LIMITATIONS:
A.
B.
C.
D.
3.
STOP-OFF CHARGES:
A.
4.
Except as provided in Paragraph 1B. each stop-off is limited to one placement of the truck in accordance with Item 750 (Pickup or
Delivery Service).
Stop-offs for partial loading or partial unloading will not be permitted on shipments moving “COD”, “In Bond”, nor on which Section 7 of
the Bill of Lading has been executed.
The substitution of freight for that originally loaded or any exchange of contents at a point or place of stop-off is prohibited
All of the component parts of a shipment must be loaded and in transit before any stop is made for partial unloading.
Except as provided in Paragraph 1B each stop for either partial loading or partial unloading, but not both on the same shipment, will be
subject to a stop-off charge of $85.00 per stop excluding the stops for initial pick-up and final delivery.
LINE HAUL CHARGES:
Line haul charges will be determined as follows:
(a)
Except as otherwise provided below, shipments will be rated as if the entire shipment moved from each place where any portion of
the shipment is picked up at each place where any portion of the shipment is delivered and the highest of such charges will apply to
the entire shipment. In determining charges apply rates in effect on date of shipment from point of origin.
(b)
Distance or mileage rates based on the distance or mileage from point of origin to point of destination, or in the event of stop off
shipments, the total miles from the original point of origin to the first stop at which any portion of the shipment is partially loaded or
unloaded, and hence from stop to stop to final destination, as set for in PC Miler.
(c)
If the total distance from initial origin to final destination via the stop off point or points exceeds 115 percent of the shortest mileage
from initial origin to final destination, that distance in excess of 115 percent will be charges for at the rate 234 cents per mile. All
mileages shall be computed by use of PC Miler. The greatest mileage between any point of loading and any point of unloading will
determine initial origin and final destination.

delivery of such freight at the point of place of stop-off, that undelivered portion of such shipment shall then be subject to rules and
regulations governing unclaimed freight, storage and redelivery of freight, to the extent that such services are applicable.
7.
MARKING OR TAGGING SHIPMENTS:
Except where shipment consists of identical packages or pieces, or where the various lots of freight comprising the shipment are of such
nature as to be easily identified and segregated, each piece or package in any shipment stopped for partial unloading must be plainly and
durably marked, stenciled or tagged by shipper in such manner that each lot of freight intended for delivery at a particular point or place of

ITEM 996 — DETERMINATION OF FREIGHT CLASSES FOR RATING PURPOSES
In accordance with standard industry practice and pursuant to proper bill-of-lading requirements; shipment weights, commodity descriptions, and
freight classifications are to be correct and must accurately reflect the shipments product and handling characteristics. Carrier maintains the right
to inspect all freight it is tendered and may adjust shipment classification to insure that carrier invoices are based on accurate freight
characteristics.
Carrier will perform necessary inspections to ensure proper shipment characteristics are utilized for invoicing purposes. When charges are
deemed necessary, Carrier will document such changes on the invoice and/or will provide class change certifications as support.
For the purpose of rating, carrier will utilize freight classes provided by the shipper on the bill-of lading. However, when inspection of a shipment
reveals material inaccuracies between information contained on the bill-of-lading and actual shipment characteristics including but not limited to
incorrect weight, missing/incomplete commodity descriptions, and/or oversized packaging, Carrier will modify the classification of the shipment to
properly reflect actual shipment characteristics.
When Class modification is necessary due to shipment inspection, carrier will employ procedures below to determine appropriate classification for
rating purposes based on a shipment’s density. Classification determined under this procedure will be applied in lieu of classification determined
under the national Motor Freight Classification STB NMF 100 Series. The following table has been adapted from the NMFC Commodity
classification Standards Board Density guidelines.



Density (pounds per cubic feet) will be determined by dividing a shipment’s weight (including all packaging and pallets) by its total cube
(length x width x height).
Calculated shipment density will be reviewed against the table below to determine the appropriate corresponding freight class for
shipment rating purposes.
Class corrections will be made when the actual class of a shipment is determined to be higher than 2 classes from the class stated on
the shipper bill-of-lading. For example, stated class 50 and density class 55 and 60 will be considered class 50 for rating purposes while
stated class 50 and density class 65 will be considered class 65 for rating purposes
