Freight charges, assessorial charges, surcharges or other charges
named in this Tariff and in individual NRAs governed by this Tariff
including advanced charges may be prepaid at origin or collected at
destination, SUBJECT to the provisions named herein. (See NOTE 1)
However, regardless of whether Bill of Lading payment status
is prepaid or collect, the Shipper, his duly-authorized Freight
Forwarder, the Consignee and the Beneficial Cargo Owner shall be,
and will remain, jointly and severally liable for all unpaid charges
and freight, including but not limited to, any sums advanced or
disbursed by the Carrier for the account of the cargo.
NOTE 1:  Shipments of the following commodities MUST be PREPAID
         in all instances:  Household Goods; Personal Effects.
a. All freight and additional charges named in this Tariff
   and in individual NRAs governed by this Tariff are due and
   considered earned upon receipt of the cargo by the originating
   Carrier, or his agent, and shall be paid to the Carrier, or his
   agent, without discount or deduction, whether the ship and/or
   cargo is lost or not lost, transportation is interrupted or
   abandoned, whether the cargo is damaged or ruined, or whether
   packages or containers are delivered empty or partly empty at
b. Rates and charges named in this Tariff and in individual NRAs
   governed by this Tariff are quoted in U.S. Currency and have been
   determined with due consideration to the relationship of U.S
   Currency to the other currencies involved. In the event of any
   material deterioration in the exchange value of U.S. Currency,
   Carrier reserves the right, upon publication herein, to adjust
   by rule charges applicable to this Tariff so as to remove any
   adverse effect in conformity with the U.S. Shipping Act of 1984,
   as amended, and the regulations of the Federal Maritime Commission
   issued pursuant thereto.
c. When freight and other charges named in individual NRAs are paid
   in foreign countries, Carrier will accept payment in a foreign
   currency provided it is freely convertible. When payment is
   effected in other than U.S. Currency, currency conversion shall
   be calculated on the basis of the highest official bank selling
   rate of exchange as quoted on the official exchange for the
   currency involved, on the day shipment is tendered to the 
   originating Carrier.
d. The payment status of a Bill of Lading may NOT be changed once
   transportation service of cargo has commenced (i.e., "prepaid"
   shipments cannot be changed to "collect shipments" and likewise
   "collect" shipments cannot be changed to "prepaid" shipments)
   without the express approval of the Carrier.
e. Carrier or its duly authorized agent, will, upon request of the
   Shipper, Freight Forwarder, Consignee or Beneficial Cargo Owner,
   extend credit to the party listed in the Bill of Lading as
   responsible for the payment of freight and charges, in amounts
   not to exceed freight, assessorial, terminal and/or advanced
   charges. The credit period shall be seven (7) days from the
   date of delivery of cargo in the case of collect shipments or
   from the date of originating Carrier's cargo receipt in the
   case of prepaid shipments.
   If freight or other charges are NOT paid within the credit
   period specified above, the Carrier will cancel the delinquent
   party's credit privileges after which time ALL freight and
   accessorial charges applying on shipments moving for the
   account of such party MUST be paid in cash, cashier's check
   or money order at the time, or prior to the time, cargo is
   tendered to originating Carrier for transportation.
   If any party responsible for the payment of charges fails or
   refuses to pay lawful freight and/or other charges due as
   specified above, Carrier shall be entitled to recover all
   collection costs incurred, including but not limited to,
   reasonable collection agency fees, attorney's fees and
   court costs.
