TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF CARRIAGE AND ALL RELATED SERVICES


When ordering Fair Express Ltd services you, as “Shipper”, are agreeing, on your behalf and on behalf of anyone else with an interest in the Shipment, that the Terms and Conditions shall apply from the time that Fair Express Ltd accepts the Shipment. Your statutory rights and entitlements under any defined service feature (for which additional payment has been made) are not affected.
“Shipment” means all documents or parcels that travel under one waybill and which may be carried by any means Fair Express Ltd chooses, including air, road or any other carrier. Every Shipment is transported on a limited liability basis as provided herein. If Shipper requires greater protection, then insurance may be arranged at an additional cost. (Please see below for further information).

1. Customs, Exports and Imports

Fair Express Ltd may perform any of the following activities on Shipper’s behalf in order to provide its services to Shipper: (1) complete any documents, amend product or service codes, and pay any duties or taxes required under applicable laws and regulations, (2) act as Shipper’s forwarding agent for customs and export control purposes and as Receiver solely for the purpose of designating a customs broker to perform customs clearance and entry and (3) redirect the Shipment to Receiver’s import broker or other address upon request by any person who Fair Express Ltd believes in its reasonable opinion to be authorized.

2. Unacceptable Shipments

Shipper agrees that its Shipment is acceptable for transportation and is deemed unacceptable if:

Shipments cannot be delivered to PO Boxes or postal codes. Shipments are delivered to the Receiver’s address given by Shipper (which in the case of mail services shall be deemed to be the first receiving postal service) but not necessarily to the named Receiver personally. Shipments to addresses with a central receiving area will be delivered to that area. If Receiver refuses delivery or to pay for delivery, or the Shipment is deemed to be unacceptable, or it has been undervalued for customs purposes, or Receiver cannot be reasonably identified or located, Fair Express Ltd shall use reasonable efforts to return the Shipment to Shipper at Shipper’s cost failing which the Shipment may be released, disposed of or sold by Fair Express Ltd without incurring any liability whatsoever to Shipper or anyone else, with the proceeds applied against service charges and related administrative costs and the balance of the proceeds of a sale to be returned to Shipper.
