5.4 Payment of charges
5.4.1 Rates and charges are published in the currency shown in the applicable Tariffs, and may be paid in any currency acceptable to Carrier. When payment is made in a currency other than the currency in which the rate or charge is published, such payment will be made at the rate of exchange established for such purpose by Carrier. The provisions of this paragraph are subject to applicable exchange laws and government regulations.
5.4.2 Full applicable charges, whether prepaid or collect, fees, duties, taxes, charges, advances and payments made or incurred, or to be incurred by Carrier, and any other sums payable to Carrier, will be deemed fully earned, whether or not the Cargo is lost or damaged, or fails to arrive at the destination specified in the Contract of Carriage. All such charges, sums and advances will be due and payable on receipt of the Cargo by Carrier, except that they may be collected by Carrier at any stage of the service performed under the Contract of Carriage.
5.4.3 The Shipper guarantees payment of all unpaid charges, unpaid Charges Collect, advances and disbursements of Carrier. The Shipper also guarantees payment of all costs, expenditures, fines, penalties, loss of time, damage and other sums which Carrier may incur or suffer by reason of the inclusion in the Shipment of articles the Carriage of which is prohibited by law, or or in the case of illegal, incorrect or insufficient marking, numbering, addressing or packing of packages or descriptions of the Cargo, or the absence, delay or incorrectness of any export or import licence or any required certificate or document, or any improper customs valuation, or incorrect statement of weight or volume. Carrier shall have a lien on the Cargo for each of the foregoing and, in the event of any non-payment thereof, shall have the right to dispose of the Cargo at public or private sale, (provided that prior to such sale Carrier shall have given notice thereof to the Shipper or to the Consignee at the address stated in the Air Waybill) and to pay itself out of the proceeds of such sale any and all such amounts. No such sale shall, however, discharge any liability to pay any deficiencies, for which the Shipper and the Consignee remain jointly and severally liable. By taking delivery or exercising any other right arising from the Contract of Carriage, the Consignee agrees to pay such charges, sums and advances except prepaid charges.
5.4.4 If the gross weight measurement, quantity or declared value of the Cargo exceeds the gross weight, measurement, quantity or declared value on which charges for Carriage have been previously computed, Carrier shall be entitled to require payment of the charge on such excess.
5.4.5 Charges Collect Shipments will be accepted only by prior written agreement with Carrier and shall be subject to any additional conditions imposed by Carrier. In any event Carrier reserves the right to refuse Shipments on a Charges Collect basis to any country where regulations prevent the conversion of funds into other currencies or the transfer of funds into other countries. Information on countries to which Charges Collect service is available, may be obtained from the Carrier upon request.
5.4.6 All charges applicable to a Shipment are payable at the time of acceptance thereof by the Carrier in the case of a prepaid Shipment (i.e. a Shipment on which the charges are to be paid by the Shipper) or at the time of delivery thereof by the Carrier in the case of collect Shipment (i.e. a Shipment on which the charges are to be paid by the Consignee).
5.4.7 Any charges, expenses or costs that cannot be determined at the time when the Cargo is handed over for Carriage may be requested by Carrier by way of deposit from the Shipper. Any residual amount owed by Carrier to the Shipper or the Shipper to the Carrier in connection with the deposit shall be settled within 21 days after determination of the exact amount of the charges, expenses or costs.
5.4.8 Carrier may cancel the Carriage of a Shipment upon refusal by the Shipper, after demand by Carrier, to pay the charges or portion thereof demanded, without Carrier being subject to any liability therefore.
5.4.9 Any invoice queries should be notified to our Revenue Integrity Team prior to payment due date. Payment terms are 30 days from date of invoice.
