Sec. 1. - General Provisions

a) This item applies only to vehicles which have been ordered or used to transport shipments subject to truckload rates. For the purpose of this item, the term "truckload rates" shall be considered to include shipments moving on a rate subject to a stated minimum weight of 20,000 pounds or more when not designated as a truckload rate, and, where applicable, shipments which are assessed charges based on the provisions of a Capacity Load Rule or are accorded Exclusive Use of Vehicle Service or Expedited Service.

b) This item applies only when vehicles are delayed or detained at the premises of pickup or delivery and only when such delay or detention is not attributable to the carrier.

c) Free time for each vehicle will be as provided in Sec. 4. After the expiration of free time, charges will be assessed as provided in Sec. 5.

d) The detention charges due the carrier will be assessed against the consignor in the case of loading and against the consignee in the case of unloading, irrespective of whether line-haul charges are prepaid or collect. When detention charges are attributable to others who are not parties to the Bill of Lading, the party responsible for the payment of the freight charges will be held responsible for any accrued detention charges. (See Note A)

NOTE A: At those marine terminal facilities where Federal Maritime Commission detention charges apply, carrier charges pursuant to this rule will be assessed on the party responsible for the payment of the freight charges to the extent such charges exceed those of the Federal Maritime Commission.

e) When carrier's employee assists in loading, unloading, or checking the freight, this item will apply whether or not the power unit is actually detained.

f) Nothing in this item shall require a carrier to pickup or deliver freight at hours other than carrier's normal business hours. This shall not be construed to restrict a carrier's ability to accept pickup and delivery schedules at hours other than its normal business hours.

Sec. 2. - Definitions

a)  "Vehicle" means straight trucks or tractor-trailer combinations used for the transportation of property.

b)  "Loading" includes furnishing carrier with the Bill of Lading, forwarding directions or other documents necessary for forwarding the shipment.

1) The time per vehicle shall begin to run upon actual notification by carrier's employee to a responsible representative of consignor, consignee or other designated party at the premises of pickup or delivery of the arrival of the vehicle for loading and unloading.  Upon such notification, the responsible representative of consignor, consignee or other designated party may enter the time of arrival onto the carrier's detention record. If the representative refuses to enter the time, then carrier's employee will enter the time and it will be binding upon each party.

2) Time shall end upon completion of loading or unloading except as provided for in Paragraph (c) of this section. Upon such completion, a responsible representative of consignor, consignee or other designated party may enter the time of completion onto the carrier's detention record.

b)  Prearranged scheduling:

1) Upon reasonable request of consignor, consignee or others designated by them, carrier will, without additional charge, enter into a prearranged schedule for arrival of the vehicle for loading or unloading.

2) When the carrier enters into a prearranged schedule with consignor, consignee or others designated by them for the arrival of the vehicle for loading or unloading and carrier is unable for any reason to maintain such schedule, then carrier and consignor, consignee or other party designated by them have the option to agree to a mutually convenient and prompt alternative arrival time or in the event such agreement cannot be reached, to compute detention time against consignor, consignee or other party designated by them from carrier's actual arrival time subject to an extension of 15 minutes, or fraction thereof, the vehicle is delayed beyond the originally scheduled arrival time; in no case shall such extended free time exceed 60 minutes.

3) If carrier's vehicle arrives prior to scheduled time, time shall begin to run from the scheduled time or actual time loading or unloading commences, whichever is earlier.

c)  Conditions governing the computation of time:

1) Computations of time are subject to and are to be made within the normal business hours at the designated place of pickup or delivery.  If carrier is permitted to work beyond this period, such working time shall also be included.

2) When loading or unloading is not completed at the end of normal business hours at the designated place, consignor, consignee or other party designated by them shall have the option:

(I) to request that the vehicle without power remain at its premises subject to the provisions of Sec. 4 (d); or

(II) to request that the vehicle with power be returned to carrier without being subject to charges for storage or redelivery so long as free time has not yet expired. When the vehicle is returned for completion of loading or unloading, the computation of any remaining free time will resume. If free time has expired and detention has begun to accrue, storage or redelivery charges as may otherwise be provided will be assessed.

3) When carrier's employee interrupts loading or unloading by the taking of any normal non-working periods, any such time will be excluded from the computation of time in excess of free time.

565 - 30 Guaranteed AM Delivery Service (GSAM)

565 - 30 Guaranteed AM Delivery Service (GSAM)

1.The R+L Carriers Guaranteed Delivery service by 12:00 PM, referred to as Guaranteed AM service, is Carrier’s delivery, or attempted delivery, of a shipment in accordance with Carrier’s normal transit standards or before in effect at the time of the shipment when such shipment is accepted by Carrier before 5:00 p.m. local time under the terms and conditions set forth in this item 565.

2. If Carrier fails to deliver a shipment by 12:00 p.m. (local time) on the scheduled delivery commitment, subject to certain exclusions, Carrier will issue a zero dollar invoice for the transportation charges of that shipment. After 12:00 p.m. (local time), deliveries are considered late, unless an appointment was required by the consignee. The “scheduled delivery commitment” is based upon the transit standards between any two zip codes and can be found on rlcarriers.com or by contacting Customer Service at 1-800-582-1485.

3. Eligibility. Shipments picked up by 5:00 p.m. local  time for direct point service are eligible for R+L Guaranteed by 12:00 PM Service referred to as Guaranteed AM. The scheduled delivery commitment is based on the date the pickup actually occurs and not on the date that the pickup was scheduled to occur (i.e., does not cover missed pick-ups). R+L Guaranteed by 12:00 PM or Guaranteed AM service covers all Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) direct shipments originating from and destined to all points in the 48 contiguous states designated as approved origin and destination pairings..

4. Requesting Service. In order to request the R+L Guaranteed AM service, the Customer must clearly and distinctly indicate “Guaranteed  by 12:00 PM Delivery” or “Guaranteed AM” on the face of the bill of lading when the shipment is tendered to Carrier. To indicate R+L Guaranteed Delivery service using the bill of lading generator on www.gorlc.com/kp_bol.asp, the Customer must select the “Guaranteed by 12:00 PM” check box in the Additional Service Options section.

5. Charges for R+L Guaranteed Delivery by 12:00 PM or Guaranteed AM  service are the debtor’s otherwise applicable net linehaul charges for that shipment (the “Standard Charges”), plus a 30% upcharge of the net linehaul charges for that shipment, subject to an Absolute Minimum Charge of $74.00 per shipment.

6. In the event the shipment is not delivered by the scheduled delivery commitment, and subject to certain exceptions set forth below, all transportation charges related to the specific shipment will be voided. Carrier will issue a zero dollar invoice to debtor showing that no transportation charges are due for that shipment. Carrier will attempt delivery of the shipment with reasonable dispatch in accordance with its scheduled delivery service. In the event the debtor believes that a zero dollar invoice should have been issued, the debtor shall notify Carrier within fifteen (15) days of the date of delivery by calling Customer Service at 1-800-582-1485.

7.  In the event the shipment includes a “call for appointment” or “notify”, we will make every effort to schedule and deliver within the time frame designated by debtor. However, once an attempt and confirmation is made with consignee, it is the consignees agreed upon time that will override the time designated on BOL due to the “Call for appointment designation. In the case of the delivery falls outside the timeframe on the BOL due to consignee’s decision  to accept earlier or later, R+L will not reimburse nor deem shipment late under the provisions of the Guaranteed by 12:00 PM referred to as Guaranteed AM service rules.

Exclusions. R+L Guaranteed Delivery does not apply to the following shipments:

A) Originating from or destined to any points outside the contiguous United States:

To or from the states of Alaska and Hawaii and the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, the Caribbean, US Virgin Islands and other US territories; to or from Canada, Mexico, Central/South America, Europe and Asia.

J) Involving R+L Carriers Truck Load services, capacity management, brokerage, intermodal, spot market pricing or other special programs.

K) Held for inspection of detained by governmental regulation or mandate.

L) Acts of God.

8. If the failure to meet the scheduled delivery commitment is caused by events beyond Carrier’s control, including, but not limited to, act of God, acts or omissions of public authority; riots, strikes or labor disputes, including those of third parties; government regulations, orders or requirements; disruption in ground transportation as a result of weather or other causes; acts of public enemies or acts of terrorism; disruption or failure of communications or information systems; or acts or omissions of Shipper, Consignee or Owner of goods or any person or entity other than Carrier, the 30% additional upcharge will not be assessed, but the Standard Charges will apply.

Articles of extraordinary value accepted for transportation will be considered to be released at the value per pound shown in Column B, subject to a maximum liability of $100,000.00 per occurrence. The maximum value per pound will be arrived at by determining the actual Class of the articles tendered, as published in NMFC 100 series, or at an Exception Class, if applicable, whichever is less, and will apply to the weight of the lost or damaged articles. The maximum value allowed will be that which is shown in Column B opposite the Class indicated in Column A, as follows:

Carrier will assess an additional charge, in excess of the total freight charges, 3% by which the agreed or declared value exceeds the carrier's maximum liability as defined in Item 170(a) of this tariff, or a specific released value provision found in the NMFC where applicable. Excess liability coverage charges shall be paid by party specified in the bill of lading as responsible for the payment of freight charges.

(d) If the shipper does not properly describe the freight on the Bill of Lading or uses a description of "FAK" or "Freight All Kinds" or other language that does not properly identify the commodities shipped, subsequent claims for shortage or damage will be based on the lowest value of any commodity contained in the shipment.

(e) Liability for loss, damage, or destruction to any shipment or part thereof in connection with the Spot Quote, Volume Quote, and/or Pallet Rate pricing system shall have a liability limited to the following:

(1) actual invoice costs of the shipment.
