NOTICE TO TARIFF USERS
Carrier has opted to be exempt from tariff publication requirements pursuant to 46 C.F.R. §520 and 532. In that
respect Carrier has opted for exclusive use of Negotiated Rate Arrangements (“NRAs”).
NVOCC NRA means the written and binding arrangement between an NRA shipper or consignee and eligible
NVOCC to provide specific transportation service for a stated cargo quantity, from origin to destination on and
after receipt of the cargo by the Carrier or its agent (originating carrier in the case of through Transportation).
Carrier shall issue quotation sheets, booking confirmations, e-mail communications and other writings with
applicable rates and charges for the shipments subject of the NRA, and shipper’s or consignee’s response by email
or other writing (collectively “the writings”) which will constitute an offer by Carrier and acceptance by
Shipper or Consignee for transportation services pursuant to 46 C.F.R. §520.13 and §532. The terms contained in
the writings shall be a valid offer for thirty (30) days from the booking date, unless otherwise rescinded by the
Carrier prior to receiving Shipper’s cargo. Carrier’s or Carrier’s agent’s receipt of cargo for this shipment
constitutes final acceptance by Shipper or Consignee of this offer, and the terms of the NRA shall bind the
parties. If the writing provided by shipper or consignee to accept the offer does not contain the legal name and
address of the shipper or consignee and its affiliates agreeing to the NRA, the shipper or consignee must provide
these by separate writing which shall be considered part of the NRA.
All applicable origin and destination local terminal and/or port charges shall be for the account of the cargo.
Rates may not be modified in an NRA after the time the shipment is received by the Carrier or its agent
(including originating carriers in the case of through transportation).

Rule 2-060: Measurement And Weight
Effective: 29APR2016 Thru: NONE Expires: NONE Publish: 29APR2016
Tariff reference to “W” and “M” signify 1,000 kilos and 1 cubic meter respectively. Whenever freight charges are
assessed on a W/M “weight or measurement” basis or where rates are provided on both a “W” and “M” basis, the
freight charges will be computed on the gross weight or the overall measurement of the pieces or packages, whichever
computation produces the greater revenue to the Carrier.
1. All packages will be measured in CENTIMETRES and weight in KILOGRAMMES.
2. Rounding off- Dimensions
Where parts of centimeter occur in dimensions, such parts below 0.5 cm. are to be ignored, and those of 0.5 cm. And
over are to be rounded off to the centimeter above.
3. Calculating Cubic Measurements
The three dimensions in centimeters (rounded off in accordance with (2)) are to be multiplied together to produce the
cube of one package or piece in cubic meters to six decimals.
In case of a single package the decimals are to be rounded off at the second decimal, i.e., if the third decimal is below 5
the second decimal remains unaltered; if the third decimal is 5 or higher the second decimal is to be adjusted upwards.
In the case of multiple packages of like dimensions the cube on one package to six decimals is to be multiplied by the
number of packages and the total cube is then to be rounded off to two decimals under the foregoing procedure.
4. OFFICIAL MEASURERS AND WEIGHERS
The straight loaded shipments of consolidator Cargo, stuffed at Carrier’s nominated off dock CY locations, does not
require measuring/weighing for purposes of confirming volume/weight of cargo. For such shipments, however, there
must be a certificate from an officially appointed Sworn Measurer to confirm the exact location at which the shipment
was stuffed into the container.
5. MISDESCRIPTION, UNDERWEIGHTS AND UNDERMEASUREMENT
A. The carrier at loading port will assess freight on the shipments on the basis of the gross weights and/or
measurements declared or deemed to have been declared by Shippers. Such assessment is subject to the terms and
conditions of the carrier’s Bill of Lading. Notwithstanding the foregoing Carrier may arrange at the port/point of
destination for the verification of the description, measurement or weights of all such shipments as they, at their sole
discretion, may decide and in all such cases the description, measurements or weights so obtained shall be used for
determining the correct amount of freight which has to be paid and expense incurred should be for account of cargo.
B. If the gross weights and/or measurements declared by the Shippers are less than those ascertained and if the
Shippers, by notification to the Carrier, within seven (7) days of the vessels sailing from port of loading or the
consignees, by notification to the Carrier prior to the shipment leaving the custody of the Carrier, maintain that the
gross weights and/or measurements stated by them are correct, freight shall be assessed provisionally on the controllers’
figures and subsequently adjusted, if necessary, after an outturn reweighing and/or re-measuring. If such outturn reweighting,
re-measuring and/or resurveying shows that the gross weights, measurements and/or description were
understated and/or misdeclared by the Shippers, re-measuring and/or resurveying shall be for the account of the cargo.

A request for diversion of a shipment will be considered as an amendment to the contract of carriage and will be
subject to the following definitions, conditions and charges:
A. Definition of Diversion:
Any change in the original billed destination (which may also include a change in Consignee, order party, or both).
A change in Consignee, order party or both will not be considered as diversion of cargo.
B. Conditions:
1. Requests must be received in writing by the carrier prior to the arrival of the vessel at Discharge Port. Carrier will
make diligent effort to execute the request but will not be responsible if such service is operationally impractical or
cannot be provided.
2. Cargo moving under a non-negotiable Bill of Lading may be diverted at the request of shipper or consignee. Cargo
moving under a negotiable Bill of Lading may be diverted by any party surrendering the properly endorsed original Bill
of Lading. Cargo moving under a negotiable Bill of Lading may also be diverted by the shipper or consignee at the
carrier’s sole discretion without receipt by the carrier of the original negotiable Bill of Lading so long as a new
negotiable Bill of Lading is not requested or issued by the carrier. If a new negotiable Bill of Lading is requested by the
shipper or consignee, the original negotiable Bill of Lading must be surrendered to the carrier prior to issuance of the
new negotiable Bill of Lading.
3. This rule will apply to full Bill of Lading quantities or full container loads only.

4. A shipment may only be diverted once. Shipper may request cancellation of the original diversion request, resulting
in delivery of the cargo to the original billed destination, provided that such request is received prior to arrival of vessel
at Discharge Port, and provided that all diversion charges as set out in C. below, applicable to the original diversion
request, are paid in full prior to the cancellation request being accepted by the carrier. In no instance will any refund of
the diversion charges be made in the event of a cancellation. Any additional expenses incurred by the carrier will be for
the account of the cargo.
5. Cargo, which, upon request of Merchant (stowage permitting), is diverted to a Port of Discharge within the Scope of
this Tariff other than that shown in the Bill of Lading, shall be assessed the actual amount of expense incurred by
Carrier, or as per carrier tariff at time of shipment, whichever is higher, plus, at the sole discretion of the Carrier,
depending on the relevant administrative burdens resulting from the diversion, an administrative fee of up to $50/BL
for cargo received and diversion requested prior to vessel departure, or up to $300/BL for cargo received and diversion
requested post vessel departure, from origin port.

Rule 2-170: SUBMISSION OF CARGO DECLARATION DATA
Effective: 29APR2016 Thru: NONE Expires: NONE Publish: 29APR2016
A. SUBMISSION OF CARGO DECLARATION DATA; DEADLINE FOR SAME.
Pursuant to Customs regulations effective December 2, 2002, Carrier is required to submit certain cargo declaration
data for all cargo on board a vessel that will call in the United States (i.e., U.S. import cargo and foreign destination
cargo remaining on board the vessel) to the U.S. Customs Service not later than 24 hours prior to the time the cargo is
loaded on Carrier’s vessel at each non-U.S. port of loading. In order to enable Carrier to comply with this requirement,
except as provided in paragraph B of this rule, any person tendering cargo to Carrier that is to be transported to the
United States or that will be on a vessel when that vessel calls in the United States must provide the following
information regarding such cargo to Carrier in writing (including by electronic transmission) in sufficient time for
Carrier to transmit the data to the Customs Service at least 24 hours prior to the loading of the cargo on Carrier’s vessel.
Failure to comply with these requirements will result in cargo not being loaded.
1. A precise description of the cargo (or the 6-digit HTS number under which cargo is classified) and weight of the
cargo or, for a sealed container, the shipper’s declared description and weight of the cargo. The quantity of cargo shall
be expressed in the lowest external packaging unit (e.g., a container containing 10 pallets with 200 cases shall be
described as 200 cases). Generic descriptions, including, but not limited to, ‘FAK,’ ‘General Cargo,’ ‘Chemicals,’
‘Foodstuffs,’ and terms such as ‘Said to Contain’ are NOT acceptable descriptions.
2. Shipper’s complete name and address, or the identification number issued to the shipper by the U.S. Customs
Service upon implementation of the Automated Commercial Environment (‘ACE’).
3. Complete name and address of the consignee, owner or owner’s representative, or its ACE identification number.
4. Internationally recognized hazardous material code when such materials are being shipped.
5. Seal numbers for all seals affixed to the container.
B. TIME FOR SUBMISSION OF DATA BY SHIPPERS TO CARRIER.
Except as otherwise provided below, the time for shipper to submit data to Carrier shall be as follows:
1. Shippers who submit their shipping instructions in paper format will be required to submit their shipping instructions
to Carrier no later than seventy-two (72) hours prior to vessel arrival at the foreign port of load. This applies to all U.S.
destined cargo as well as cargo intended to be transshipped at a U.S. port and cargo that will remain on the vessel for
carriage to a non-U.S. port.
C. CERTAIN NON-VESSEL OPERATING COMMON CARRIERS.
Non-vessel operating common carriers (‘NVOCCs’) that are licensed by or registered with the FMC and that have
obtained Customs bonds may submit the required inbound cargo declaration data directly to the U.S. Customs Service
in accordance with Customs Service regulations and guidelines. For purposes of this provision, an NVOCC is
registered with the FMC if it has been issued an Organization Number by the FMC, has published a valid and effective
rules tariff, and has posted the required financial security with the FMC.

1. Certification. Any NVOCC that submits cargo declaration information directly to the Customs Service shall, unless
notified by the Carrier pursuant to subparagraph C(1) above that it is not required to do so, in lieu of the information
required to be submitted pursuant to paragraph A of this rule, provide the Carrier, not later than the deadline for shipper
submission of cargo information under paragraph B of this rule, with a written certification stating that the required
inbound cargo declaration data for its cargo has been transmitted to the U.S. Customs Service in a timely and accurate
manner. Such certification shall describe the cargo tendered with sufficient specificity (including container number)
that Carrier may readily identify such cargo.
2. NVOCC Co-Loading. For purposes of this paragraph, the term ‘Master NVOCC’ shall mean the NVOCC that is the
customer of the Carrier and tenders co-loaded cargo to the Carrier in its name. In the event the Master NVOCC
submits cargo declaration data for co-loaded cargo directly to the Customs Service, it shall do so for all NVOCCs with
which it co-loads. In the event the Master NVOCC does not submit cargo declaration data for co-loaded cargo directly
to the Customs Service but NVOCCs with which it co-loads transmit cargo declaration data for their cargoes directly to
the Customs Service, it shall be the obligation of the Master NVOCC to provide Carrier with the certification described
in subparagraph C (1) with respect to all co-loaded cargo tendered to Carrier by the Master NVOCC.
3. All NVOCCs shall be subject to Paragraphs D and E of this rule.
D. FAILURE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION; DENIAL OF PERMISSION TO
LOAD CARGO.
1. In the event Carrier fails to provide the required inbound cargo declaration data to the U.S. Customs Service for all
cargo to be loaded on its vessel within the time period required by Customs Service regulations it may, among other
things, be assessed a civil penalty, denied permission to unload the cargo for which information was not timely
provided, and/or denied permission to unload any cargo from the vessel on which the cargo is moving. Accordingly,
Carrier may refuse to load any cargo tendered to it for which it has not received either (i) the data required by
paragraph A of this rule by the deadline specified pursuant to paragraph B; or (ii) the certification required by
paragraph C of this rule by the deadline specified therein.
2. Any and all costs incurred by Carrier with respect to cargo in its possession which is not loaded due to the nonprovision
of information or certification, or which is not loaded pursuant to the instructions of the U.S. Customs
Service (regardless of whether or not the required data or certification has been provided for such cargo), including but
not limited to inspection, storage and/or re-delivery costs, shall be for the account of the cargo. Carrier shall have a lien
on cargo in its possession for amounts due hereunder and may hold cargo until such amounts (and any other unpaid
freights or charges) are paid or sell such cargo after a reasonable period. In the event Carrier is forced to take legal
action to collect amounts due hereunder, Carrier shall be entitled to recover all costs (including reasonable attorneys’
fees and expenses) incurred in connection with such legal action.
E. INDEMNIFICATION OF CARRIER.
If Carrier is assessed a civil penalty or fine or is denied permission to unload cargo, because of the failure of any and all
shippers, consignees, cargo owners, NVOCCs, shippers’ associations and their agent(s) to provide the information
required by this rule and/or by the regulations or guidelines of the U.S. Customs Service in a complete and accurate
manner, then such shippers, consignees, cargo owners, NVOCCs, shippers’ associations and their agent(s)shall be
jointly and severally liable to indemnify and reimburse Carrier for any such penalty or fine and any and all costs,
damages or liability, direct, indirect, special or consequential, incurred by the Carrier as a result of the denial of
permission to unload cargo or any delays related thereto. Carrier shall have a lien on cargo in its possession for
amounts due hereunder and may hold cargo until such amounts (and any other unpaid freights or charges) are paid or
sell such cargo after a reasonable period. In the event Carrier is forced to take legal action to collect amounts due
hereunder, Carrier shall be entitled to recover all costs (including attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with such legal
action.
F. CONFIDENTIALITY. Carrier acknowledges that the information required by the Customs Service may constitute
confidential information that is not generally available to the public. Carrier, in accordance with the requirements of
Section 10(b)(13) of the Shipping Act of 1984, as amended, will keep confidential, to the extent permitted by law, all
Shipper bill of lading information, including information related to underlying shippers and commodities in respect of
containers of less than container load cargo containing shipments by more than one Shipper.
