We must receive Notice of Claim due to damage, delay or shortage - including perishable and spoilage
damage claims, due to late or delayed delivery or failure to properly collect or deliver a C.O.D. payment
instrument - within 10 days after delivery of the shipment. (See Guarantee Policy for the time period to
request a refund or credit of transportation charges due to untimely delivery.)
We must receive notice of all other claims - including, but not limited to - non-delivery or misdelivery
within 15 days after we accept the shipment.
Your Notice of Claim must include complete shipper and recipient information, as well as the job or
package tracking number, date of shipment, number of pieces, and shipment weight. Failure to provide
us with notice in the manner and within the time limits set forth in paragraphs 1 through 5, will result in
your claim being denied and are prerequisites to any legal cause of action against us. Should you elect to
submit a claim by telephone, you agree that our records are the sole record as to whether timely notice
Written documentation of all claims must be delivered to us within 30 days after we receive notification
in accordance with paragraphs 1 through 5 above. Such documentation may include: original purchase
invoices, estimates or invoices for repair, expense statements, appraisals or other records. These
documents must be verifiable to our satisfaction. We are not obligated to act on any claim until all
transportation charges have been paid. The claim amount may not be deducted from these charges or
from any outstanding balance.
All of the original shipping cartons, packing and contents must be made available for our inspection and
retained until the claim is concluded.
Except as provided in the paragraph below, receipt of the shipment by the recipient - without written
notice of damage on the delivery manifest - is prima facie evidence that the shipment was delivered in
good condition. As a condition to our considering any claim, all the original shipping cartons, packing
(inner and outer) and contents must be made available for our inspection.
In the case of a claim for concealed damage which is not discovered at the time of delivery, the sender or
recipient must notify us as promptly as possible after the discovery of the damage - and in any event - no
later than 7 days after the date of the delivery. In any event, the original shipping cartons, packing and
contents must be made available for our inspection.
The right to damages against us under any cause of action arising from the transportation of packages
pursuant to this guide shall be extinguished unless an action is brought within one year from the date of
delivery or from the date which the shipment should have been delivered.
You and Bocsit agree that in event of disputes or controversies as to the adequacy of packing or cause
of physical damage to a shipment, such disputes or controversies shall be submitted to the arbitration
of three competent persons - one appointed by each party and the third to be appointed by the other
two, whose award shall be conclusive and binding on both parties. The rules and procedures for any
such arbitration may be set by agreement of the parties. However, in the event that the parties are
unable to agree, the arbitrators shall have authority to establish reasonable rules and procedures. Said
arbitrators shall not have the authority or power to modify or alter any express condition or provision of
this agreement - including those pertaining to limits of liability - or to render an award that by its terms
has the effect of altering or modifying any express condition or provision of this agreement. No suit at
law or in equity based on any dispute or controversy subject to arbitration under this agreement shall be
instituted by either party, except to enforce the award of the arbitration. Failure by Bocsit to invoke this
section, in any case, is not a waiver of the terms of this section. Each party shall bear its own arbitration
You agree that you will not sue as a class plaintiff or class representative, join a class as a member, or
participate as an adverse party in any way in a class action lawsuit against us. However, nothing in this
paragraph limits your right to bring a lawsuit as an individual plaintiff.
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY OF THE ABOVE CONDITIONS MAY RESULT IN THE DENIAL OF A CLAIM.
Only one claim can be filed in connection with a shipment. Payment of a claim shall extinguish any right to
recover in connection with a shipment.
We reserve the option to pick up salvage on damaged claims when we pay full value.
