Tailgate Service

Unloading is the responsibility of the Receiver. When requested by the Consignor or Consignee, and when safe and practicable operating conditions permit, the Forwarder may move shipments or portions of shipments from or to the rear of the trailer to accommodate loading or unloading at a rate of $1.60 per hundred pounds, subject to a $20.00 pallet minimum and $60.00 shipment minimum. The Forwarder shall be permitted to interline or put such shipments into temporary storage for later delivery pick up or delivery, at the expense of the party responsible for the regular freight charges, if such handling will result in a delay to the Forwarder's operations. The charges provided in this item will be in addition to all other lawful charges and shall be paid by the party responsible for the regular freight charges.
