Time/Volume Rates in Foreign Commerce



In consideration for a volume commitment over a time span to be agreed upon between the carrier and the merchant, the carrier may grant special Time/Volume Rates to the merchant.


These rates are applicable only to the commodity descriptions, scope, time frame and volume as provided for specifically in the individual tariff item.


In case the merchant is not able to tender the minimum volume of cargo, within the time frame, as outlined in the Time/Volume rate filing, all past and current shipments which have been rated in accordance with the rate(s) filed in the Time/Volume rate item shall be re-rated, under the regular applicable tariff item, and the merchant agrees to pay any additional freight or charges which may become due by re-rating all shipments previously rated under the Time/Volume rate item.
