The rates named herein include pickup or delivery at all points within the limits of the cities, towns, villages and other points from and to which rates apply, but each shipment will include only one pickup and one delivery.
All shipments shall be loaded by the consignee and unloaded by the
consignee. TCI’s drivers are instructed to sign bills of lading as shipper
load and count or “SLC”. Inadvertent omission of this notation shall not result
in a presumption of carrier liability for shortage or damage (in the absence of
upset or accident) where the driver was either not present or not allowed to
observe the loading and unloading.
Carrier shall allow one hour of free time both for loading and unloading for
vehicles with power units and drivers.
For its operating convenience, TCI reserves a right to hire other carriers
qualified subcontractors to provide all or part of given movements. TCI
agrees to protect the rates set forth herein when substituted services are
provided and warrants that all terms, conditions, duties and obligations owed
to shipper by this circular, bill of lading, and/or contract will be provided.
