Minimum Quantity Rates


When two or more Tariff Items are named for the same commodity over the same scope and under similar conditions, and the application is dependent upon quantity of the commodity shipped, the total freight charges assessed against the shipment may not exceed the total charges computed for a larger quantity, if the Tariff Item specifying a required minimum quantity (either weight or measurement per container or in containers), will be applicable to the contents of the container(s), and if the minimum set forth is met or exceeded. At the shippers option, a quantity less than the minimum level may be freighted at the lower Tariff Item if the weight or measurement declared for rating purposes is increased to the minimum level.
