USED FREIGHT - If cargo has been reconditioned, refurbished, rebuilt, remanufactured, and even if it is being shipped in its original packaging, or packaging similar to its original packaging, it is to be deemed USED for the purpose of the applicable rates and liability limits. Cargo is considered NEW if it has come from the manufacturing or growing facility, and it remains in its original box, carton, or shipping container, and has never been removed from the manufacturer's original packaging. The freight density (Weight/Cubic Feet) of the shipment shall determine the Carrier's liability for each shipment. If the freight density is unavailable, the carrier's liability shall be determined by the freight class of the shipment, in accorance with NMFC freight classification guidelines. Freight subject to an FAK rating shall be indemnified using the Carrier liability limits of the class or density at which the freight was rated. The weight of packaging and/or shipping container shall not be included when determining additional insurance coverage or maximum liability. Carrier considers a pallet to weigh 50 pounds.

Additional liability coverage is not and will not be considered as insurance for the cargo. Any effort to request additional liability coverage or declare a value in excess of the maximum indemnity limits allowed in this tariff is null and void. Inadvertent acceptance of shipments bearing such a request does not constitute a waiver of the indemnity limits by the Carrier. Additional liability coverage may be denied at the Carrier?s discretion.

The freight density of the shipment is calculated by using the formula: Freight Density = Shipment Weight / Shipment Cubic Feet. The calculated freight density is matched to a standard NMFC freight class by referencing the chart below. <Freight Class Table> When Freight Dimensions or NMCF freight class are not provided by the Shipper, the shipment will be rated using the 150 freight class. The shipment will be subject to inspection by Carrier. The rate is subject to change based on using the actual freight density of the shipment, as determined by Carrier during inspection of shipment and applying the rating method described earlier in this section. For shipments containing multiple handling units with different freight densities or multiple pieces with different NMFC freight classifications, the shipment will be rated by using the the rating method described earlier in this section by using the average freight density of the entire shipment and referencing the chart above to determine the appropriate NMFC freight class to be used for purposes of rating the shipment. Reclassification Charge If an inaccuate NMFC freight class is provided by the Shipper, the Carrier reserves the right to charge a Weight and Inspection accessorial charge. See Accessorial Rate Chart for current rates Item 490: Application of Dimension Weight Dimensional or Dim weight is determined by multiplying length, times width, times height (in inches). Fractions of inches shall be rounded up to the nearest inch before calculation. Divide the total by 172 to determine dimensional weight. (L x W x H)/172 = Dim Weight Irregular shaped items are squared, multiplying the largest dimension, in inches, by itself. Then multiply the result by the length or height, in inches, to determine cubic inches. Each shipment is subject to the Dimension Weight guidelines, unless the shipment was rated using NMFC classification guidelines, Carrier specified Density Based Classification (Item 488), or the shipment was rated by unit or pallet. Freight charges shall be determined by applying the greater of the dimensional and the actual weight.
