Carrier will reject any claim for damages of any kind of freight if it is not properly packaged.
  • Freight must be easily loaded and unloaded to the trailer with the use of a forklift, lift gate or similar equipment, if the carrier refuses to pick up the freight because it is not properly packaged, miss trip and some extra charges may apply; the client will assume full responsibility of these charges (By client we mean, the company that hires AIA) and they will be send immediately to the client once the carrier inform its existence.

  • If the client fails to provide the individual weight for each piece, and provides only the total weight of the freight, the individual freight will be calculated by dividing the total weight between the total number of pieces. This, in order to provide an initial rate, if the client or the shipper later notify a different weight per pieces, even if the total weight remains the same, the rate may vary.
