Issue Date: 8/1/2012
Effective Date: 8/1/2012
Truckload shipments may be stopped in transit at a point or points in route between original point of origin and the final destination for the purpose of partial unloading (or loading) provided the stop-off point is directly intermediate to the final destination (or origin) via the direct route over which operations are generally conducted by DUBL, subject to the following:
- Arrangements for the stop-off must first be made with DUBL.
- Stopping in transit privileges will only apply on shipments received on one day from one Consignor. 3) The name of places or addresses at which vehicles are to be stopped for completion of loading or partial unloading shall be shown, along with definite instructions and description as to articles to be unloaded (or loaded) either in the body of the Bill of Lading, or in a separate paper which shall be attached to and considered as part of the shipping documents.
- Charges will be assessed on the basis of the applicable minimum weight or actual weight, when greater, of the entire shipment and at the truckload rate applicable from original point of shipment to the point which the highest rate applies where any portion of the shipment is delivered. The charges for each stop, exclusive of original pick-up or final delivery shall be $50.00 per stop. This will be in addition to all other charges assessed against the shipment. In cases where shipments are consigned to more than one Consignee, all charges must be prepaid.
- Stopping in transit for partial unloading (or loading) will not be permitted for C.O.D. shipments.
