1. Bills of Lading
All bills of lading issued by the Company through the Customer’s use of the SERVICE are NON-NEGOTIABLE and have been prepared by the Company as the Customer's agent for this limited purpose on behalf of the Customer and shall be deemed, conclusively, to have been prepared by the Customer and to bind the Customer. Any unauthorized alteration of bills of lading, or unauthorized use of bills of lading, or tendering of shipments to any carrier other than that designated by the Company, or the use of any bill of lading not authorized or issued by the Company shall VOID the Company's obligations to make any payments relating to this shipment and VOID all rate quotes.
If the Customer does not complete or provide all the documents required for transportation, or if the documents which they submit are not appropriate or accurate, the Customer hereby instructs the Company, where permitted by law, to complete, correct or replace the documents for them at the expense of the Customer. However, the Company is not obligated to do so. If a substitute bill of lading is needed to complete pickup or delivery and the Company completes that document, the terms of the substitute bill of lading will govern. The Company is not liable to the Customer or any other person for any actions taken or not taken on behalf of the Customer under this provision.
If a blind shipment is tendered, the Company does not guarantee that the information will not be revealed, disclosed and/or become known and neither the Company nor the carrier shall assume any liability to the blind shipment requestor or any third party for the release of such information, whether or not such release resulted from the fault of the Company or the carrier.
2. Customer's Warranties
The Customer is responsible for and warrants their compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations including but not limited to customs laws, hazardous materials laws, import and export laws, and governmental regulation of any state and country to, from, through or over which the shipment may be transported.
If applicable, the Customer further warrants that it is registered and in compliance with the security plan and training requirements, and any amendments related thereto, related to hazardous materials, including but not limited to, 49 C.F.R. #172.700-704 and 49 C.F.R. #172.800-804. The Customer is obligated to inform the Company at the time of shipment tendering if any shipments contain hazardous materials. The Customer further warrants that it will immediately advise the Company if its registration and/or compliance with these regulations expires or are terminated. The Customer agrees to furnish such information and documentation as necessary to establish its compliance with such laws, rules, and regulations.
The Company does not accept and the Customer agrees not to tender any shipment containing (i) certain classifications of hazardous materials (including but not limited to Class 1, Class 2.3, Class 4.3, Poisonous/Toxic Inhalation Hazards in Class 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8, Class 6.2, Class 7, and regulated and medical waste), (ii) deeds, stock certificates, securities, or any similar items, (iii) financial and/or personal identification documentation in paper form or on hard drives and servers (including but not limited to business records and passports), (iv) money or currency of any denomination, (v) precious metals (including but not limited to gold, silver or platinum), (vi) cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products, (vii) fireworks, firearms and/or ammunition, (viii) artwork, antiques, artifacts, or one-of-a-kind items, (ix) live animals, fish, or insects, (x) human and animal remains, (xi) etiological agents, (xii) blood or plasma, (xiii) carbon black, activated carbon, and lamp black, (xiv) cannabis/marijuana, hemp, cannabidiol (CBD), or any products containing these items, and/or (xv) vaping devices, accessories, and products.

The Company assumes no liability to the Customer or any other person for any loss or expense due to the failure of the Customer to comply with the provisions of this section. The Customer agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold the Company harmless for any and all loss, liability, claim, damages, or suit arising from Customer’s noncompliance with the restrictions and/or requirements of this section.
All charges are payable in US Dollars via credit card and are due upon booking unless the Customer has been approved for credit terms. When a credit card is added to YOUR account, a secure token is created. This token will be saved unless YOU opt-out. If YOU opt-out, the token will be stored for 90 days from the date opted out in case of any refunds or adjustments.
If credit terms are offered, the Customer is subject to credit approval and the Company’s continued approval. The Company may change credit terms and may establish, revise, and/or revoke a credit limit at any time when, in the Company's opinion, the Customer’s financial condition, previous payment record, and/or the nature of Company's relationship with Customer so warrants. Upon credit approval, all charges are payable in US Dollars and are due upon receipt or upon agreed payment terms.
The Company reserves the right to amend or adjust the original quoted and/or paid amount if the original quoted and/or paid amount was based upon incorrect information received at the time of the original quote or if additional services were required or otherwise necessary for the carrier to perform the shipment pickup, transportation and delivery. The Customer agrees it will be responsible for all charges payable, including any adjustments, on account of such Customer’s shipment. These charges and adjustments, if any, will be automatically debited to the Customer’s credit card or bank account. The Customer is permitted thirty (30) days from the date of the adjustment to dispute the charge(s). If the Company does not receive a dispute within the allowable thirty (30) days, the disputed item will be denied by the Company.
Any payment which is past due shall be subject to an additional charge at the rate of 10% per annum, calculated on a monthly basis, of the average outstanding balance due, or the highest rate of interest permitted by applicable law, whichever is less. Overpayments do not accrue interest. In the event the Company retains an attorney or collection agency to collect unpaid charges or for the enforcement of these TERMS AND CONDITIONS, all unpaid charges will be subject to a late payment penalty of 33% and the Customer shall also be liable for all attorneys and collection agency fees incurred, together with related costs and expenses. In addition to the Customer, all shippers, consignors, or consignees are jointly and severally liable for the freight charges owed to the Company and the Company holds a warehouseman’s general lien on all tangible personal property for any outstanding balances owed to the Company. The Customer agrees to the provisions of this section on behalf of any third party with interest in the freight.
4. Cargo Claims
The carrier liability and claims process for any cargo damage, loss, theft, or delay from any cause shall be determined under the Carmack Amendment, 49 U.S.C. 14706 and 49 C.F.R. §370.1 et seq. respectively (“Cargo Claim Liability Terms”). To the extent that any of the Cargo Claim Liability Terms are inconsistent with the Highway Traffic Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, as amended, and the regulations thereto or similar provincial or territorial legislation having jurisdiction, and/or the provisions of any bill of lading, the Cargo Claim Liability Terms shall prevail. Cargo claims can be denied and/or the amount paid can be less than the value of the shipment based on, but not limited to, the carrier’s Tariffs, commodity restrictions, released value provisions, limitations of liability, or applicable common law exceptions to liability. The Customer agrees the Company, as a broker only, is not liable for any damage, loss, theft, or delay, except as stated hereafter. To the extent the Company is found negligent for any cargo damage, loss, theft, or delay, the Company’s liability is limited to no greater than a refund of the total freight charge payment related to the specific shipment in question. To the extent the foregoing may be disallowed by applicable law, FREIGHTQUOTE’s liability shall be limited to the fullest extent otherwise permitted by law. The Company will not be responsible in any way for claims arising out of the Customer’s negligence, the carrier's negligence, or the negligence of any third party. The Customer agrees to the provisions of this section on behalf of any third party with interest in the freight.
Cargo liability on LTL shipments varies by carrier, commodity, and the product being considered new or used, as determined by the carrier, and is generally limited to a per pound amount. The individual carrier's Tariffs will apply when determining carrier liability. If the shipment contains freight with a predetermined exception value, as determined by the carrier, the maximum exception liability will override the otherwise standard liability coverage. The maximum amount that the Customer will receive from the carrier on a claim will be that which is recoverable under the respective transportation Tariffs. On LTL shipments, the Company may offer a shipper’s interest insurance policy for purchase by the Customer. In no case will the carrier’s maximum cargo liability on a truckload shipment be greater than the value disclosed by the Customer or $100,000, whichever is less. It is the Customer’s obligation to provide the accurate value of each truckload shipment before tendering. In no case will the carrier’s maximum cargo liability on a parcel shipment be greater than $100 unless additional coverage is purchased at the time of booking. Cargo liability on rail shipments is subject to the provisions of the applicable rail circular. It is the Customer's responsibility to have sufficient cargo insurance coverage in place to meet their shipment needs.
The Company may, but is not obligated to, assist the Customer in the claim filing process. A complete and detailed claim and all required supporting documentation must be submitted by the Customer in writing to the carrier or Company no later than six (6) months after delivery or expected delivery. Claims for damages that are not readily apparent or noted upon delivery ("concealed damage") must be submitted within three (3) days after delivery. The Customer is responsible to ensure freight is inspected upon delivery and damage is noted accordingly. Claims for concealed damage may not be honored by the carrier even if they are reported within three (3) days. The Company shall not be liable for any actions brought to enforce a claim unless all claim procedures have been complied with and the action is brought within one (1) year after the date the carrier first disallowed all or part of the claim. The filing of a claim does not relieve the responsible party for the payment of freight charges. Freight payment is necessary to process a claim. The Customer may not offset freight or other charges owed to the Company against claims for any loss, damage, mis-delivery, or non-delivery. The Company has a lien on funds recovered through the processing of cargo claims and may withhold and offset amounts recovered through such claim processing and apply toward any open past due invoices on account.
5. Forum Selection & Choice of Law
Any claim or litigation relating to these TERMS AND CONDITIONS, relating to any shipment scheduled or tendered through the Company's WEBSITE OR SERVICE, or relating to any and all disputes between the Company and the Customer, shipper and/or consignee shall be filed in the jurisdiction of the State or Federal Courts within the State or District of Minnesota located in Hennepin County and shall be subject to Minnesota law. Customer hereby irrevocably consents and submits themselves to the personal jurisdiction of said courts for all such purposes.
LTL rates are based on the freight class as determined by the NMFC (National Motor Freight Classification) and in accordance with the actual description, size, and weight of the shipment. Additional fees may apply for other services or reasons including, but not limited to, delivery appointments, residential or limited access locations, dimensional changes, reweighs and reclassifications, lift gate usage, attempted pickup, and/or inside delivery.
Truckload and rail rates are based on dock door pickup/dock door delivery, shipper load/consignee unload, mileage, weight, and commodity. Additional fees may apply for other services or reasons including, but not limited to, tractor detention, trailer detention, and driver assistance. Once the Company has contracted with a carrier to move a truckload shipment, the scheduled load must be tendered to the carrier as requested at the agreed upon date, or an equipment not used (EON) fee will be assessed to the Customer.
Parcel rates are based on the information provided at the time of quoting and are subject to change according to actual shipment characteristics and services provided.
7. LTL Guaranteed Services
LTL guaranteed services are inclusive of transit times only as noted by the carrier. Guaranteed service transit times do not include holiday and/or no service days as defined by the individual carrier. Shipments not delivered within the date/time specified on the bill of lading may not be considered a service failure when the reason for the delivery delay is deemed as no fault of the carrier. These reasons could include, but are not limited to, the following: acts of God; weather; the existence of violence, riots, military action or such possible disturbance as creating reasonable apprehension of danger; acts or omissions by shipper, consignee, owner of goods or public authority; delays due to customs clearance or documentation required for movement of shipment; closure of federal, state, provincial, city or local roads, streets, or highways resulting in travel delays by carrier; and shipments not accepted by the consignee when offered for delivery. This service is not a guarantee for pickup. The pickup day is not included in the qualification and calculation of LTL transit time. The Customer is liable for all charges related to the shipment. In the event the carrier fails to comply with the Guaranteed service requested the Customer is permitted ten (10) business days from the actual delivery date of the shipment to file a claim in writing with the Company. If the Company does not receive a claim or receives the claim after the allowable ten (10) business days, the service provided by the LTL carrier will be deemed to have met all Guaranteed service standards and the claim will automatically be considered invalid and denied. If a claim is submitted and the carrier has agreed it is a valid and approves the claim, the Company will credit the account of the said Customer for freight charges according to the carrier's Guaranteed refund policy only. Carrier Guaranteed service policies are subject to change without notice. In no event shall the carrier or Company be liable, nor will any account be credited if the Customer does not use the Company's bill of lading.
8. Electronic Order Status Notifications; SMS-text
If offered by the Company, the Customer may choose to receive email or SMS-text notifications from the Company related to the Customer’s shipment order status. The Customer can choose to receive order status updates (i.e., the carrier is in route); shipment delivery confirmation; or shipment delivery delay.

The Customer should contact its wireless provider for information about its messaging plan. The Customer’s wireless provider may impose message or charge limitations on the Customer’s account that are outside the Company’s control. All charges for the provision of wireless data and SMS-text services and plans are billed by and payable to the Customer’s wireless provider.

The Customer represents to the Company that it is the owner or authorized user of the wireless device the Customer identified for use to subscribe for email or SMS-text notifications, and that the Customer is authorized to approve the applicable charges.
The Company will not be liable for any delays or failures in the Customer’s receipt of any email and/or SMS-text messages as delivery of such communications is subject to effective transmission from the Customer’s network operator and processing by the Customer’s wireless provider. All email and SMS-text messages related to the Customer’s shipment order status are provided on an AS IS, AS AVAILABLE basis.
Data obtained from the Customer in connection with its receipt of email and/or SMS-text messages may include the Customer’s identified cell phone number, the Customer’s wireless provider's name, and the date, time and content of the Customer’s shipment order status messages and other information that the Customer may provide. The Company may use this information to contact the Customer and to provide the services Customer requests from Company, and to otherwise operate, develop and improve the Company’s service offerings. The Customer’s wireless provider and other service providers may also collect data about the Customer’s email and/or SMS-text usage, and their practices are governed by their own policies. The Company will only use information the Customer provides to transmit the Customer’s email or SMS-text message or as otherwise described in this document. Nonetheless, we reserve the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, or governmental request, to avoid liability, or to protect the Company’s rights or property. When the Customer completes the Company’s forms or otherwise provides the Company with information in connection with the service the Customer is requesting to receive, the Customer agrees to provide accurate, complete, and true information. With regard to all processing and use of personal information, including any Customer data which represents personal information, the Company shall comply with the Company’s Global Privacy Notice available to view on the WEBSITE.
