QUOTED RATE. All shipments are rated, quoted, and booked based on the exact information provided by the customer. Rate quotes are recommendations that include the following factors in calculation: (1) the gross weight of the shipment including all packaging materials and pallets. (2) The exact commodity being shipped, described by its freight class and/or NMFC code. (3) The dimensions per shipping unit and volume of space needed. (4) The number of shipping units. (5) Accessorial Services: these services are provided by the Carrier in addition to the basic transportation service of the freight. Shipments are quoted from dock to dock; therefore, any accessorial services will result in additional charges. These include, but are not limited to: lift gate service, “limited access” pickups/deliveries, including residential, inside pickups/deliveries, appointments and/or notification service, temperature control, location updates, and other services outside of the standard shipping of freight.
INITIAL BILLING. The estimated/initial cost for each shipment is billed and charged to the Customer’s open account at the time of dispatch. The Customer understands that this initial billing is based on the information provided by the customer and that this billing is done in “good faith” with the assumption that the Customer provided true and accurate information reflecting the actual description of their shipment and services to be provided.
ADJUSTMENTS. The Carrier reserves the right to verify a shipment’s weight, dimensions, freight class, and any Accessorial services provided; Accessorial services include but are not limited to detention, , residential/limited access service, appointments, and lumper service. In the event a Carrier discovers these items are incorrectly described on the BOL, if applicable, the Carrier will have a freight inspector document the differences and a “Billing Adjustment” will be issued. Should this occur the Customer agrees to pay for all adjustments (if any) and adjustments will be automatically charged to the Customer’s open account. Billing adjustments may also incur a rebilling and reprocessing fee.
If rates are adjusted by Allied Transport Logistics LLC, Customer has three (3) business days to dispute and appeal the adjustments. Customer then has the opportunity to provide proof to reverse these adjustments.
CANCELLATION OF SERVICES. The Customer may cancel a freight shipment at any time up to 24 hours from scheduled pickup or else a fee of up to 10% of the predetermined line haul amount may be charged to compensate the Carrier.

Further, Customer agrees that no certification authority or other third party verification is necessary to validate Customer’s electronic signature; and that the lack of such certification or third party verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of Customer’s signature or resulting contract between Customer and Broker.
