Issue Date: 11/16/2017 (2nd Revised)
Effective Date: 12/1/2017
- Pallets Defined.
Except as otherwise specifically stated, rates, and charges dependent on price per pallet or skid named in tariffs, in contracts and all other supporting correspondence or documentation shall be limited to pallets, platforms, shipping racks, or skids not exceeding 40"X48"X 54". Pallets, platforms, shipping racks, or skids that exceed specified parameters will be assessed additional charges. The driver will sign only for the number of pallets, not the number of pieces.
- Calculating charges when “pallet or pallets” exceed the specified published parameters
In the event that a pallet or pallets on a shipment exceed the defined parameters set forth on the pricing agreement, an additional pallet charge will be assessed for each parameter excess. Example: published pricing is $60.00 per pallet maximum weight not to exceed 1000# per pallet and dimensions of pallet not to exceed 48” x 48” x 54”; if shipment consists of one pallet 48” x48” x 48” weighing 1500#, a charge for an additional pallet will be assessed, $60.00 for the published rate and $60.00 for the additional weight for a total of $120.00, if the pallet should weight 2500#, an additional $120.00 would be assessed for a total of $180.00:
If shipment consists of one pallet 48” x 60” x 48” weighing 950#, a charge for an additional pallet will be assessed, $60.00 for the published rate and $60.00 for the additional space for a total of $120.00
