BILLING

For and in consideration of the transportation services to be provided, the Shipper agrees to pay FORWARD AIR the applicable freight charges as set forth in its current written rate circulars, if any, written rate tenders, and these Service Conditions on prepaid shipments. The Shipper's complete name, address, city, state, zip code, FORWARD AIR account number, and contact name must appear in the appropriate areas of the Waybill. The word "Shipper" must appear in the "bill to" section of the Waybill.

If the Consignee is responsible for payment of the freight charges, the Consignee's complete name, address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, and contact name must appear in the appropriate areas of the Waybill. The word "Consignee" and the Consignee's FORWARD AIR account number must appear in the "bill to" section of the Waybill. If the Consignee is billed initially and refuses to make payment for the services rendered, the charges will be rebilled to the Shipper's account.

If a Third Party (including the Shipper or Consignee at an address different from that which appears in the "Shipper" or "Consignee" sections of the Waybill) is responsible for the freight charges, the Third Party's complete name, address, city, state, zip code, and FORWARD AIR account number must appear in the "bill to" section of the Waybill.
If a third party is billed initially and refuses to make payment for the services rendered, the charges will be rebilled to the Shipper's account.

For "bill to" Consignee or Third Party transactions, if the shown Consignee or Third Party refuses to pay the charges, refuses delivery, or cannot be contacted, the Shipper is liable for, and will be billed for, all charges and fees. If a Consignee or Third Party does not have credit arrangements with FORWARD AIR, the Shipper will automatically be billed.

Your shipment may be delayed if we determine that it is billed to a FORWARD AIR account number which is not in good credit standing.

Notwithstanding any payment instructions that are given to FORWARD AIR, the Shipper is ultimately liable for all charges and fees. Where the Shipper or Consignor acts for or on behalf of the beneficial owner of the goods, recourse to said beneficial owner is preserved.

FORWARD AIR reserves the right to demand F.C.C.O.D. for transportation charges incurred on any shipment when the party liable for the charges has not yet been extended credit.

FORWARD AIR reserves the right to demand prepayment of charges by cashiers check, certified funds or money order on any shipment. A $25.00 fee will be applied for any check that is dishonored due to insufficient funds or incorrect or insufficient signature of the drawer.
