What Is a Broker Carrier Agreement

Freight forwarders want to know when they will be paid, what kind of liability they might need to have other truck loading arrangements before they consider transporting it. Without the brokerage contract, truck freight cannot be booked and then transported. These terms and conditions (“Terms” or “Agreement”) apply to services provided by an air carrier (“CARRIER”) and provided on behalf of Precision Specialized Inc. (hereinafter “BROKER”). These General Terms and Conditions supersede all previous Conditions of Carriage and other prior statements regarding the fares and conditions of the Carrier`s services. These Terms and Conditions shall prevail in the event of any discrepancy or conflict between these Terms and Conditions and those of CARRIER, unless changes have been made with the prior written consent of a CARRIER officer. CARRIER reserves the right to modify, supplement or supplement these Terms and Conditions from time to time without notice. Copies of the carrier`s latest terms and conditions are available upon request. The general conditions of the carrier in force on the day of shipment apply. BROKER and CARRIER are together the “parties”.

In accordance with the terms of these Terms and Conditions, BROKER, a duly authorized and authorized freight or freight broker, undertakes to use CARRIER`s services by providing a broker offer to transport third party goods. By accepting a broker`s offer, CARRIER accepts all the terms and conditions set forth herein.
