time cargo is booked with the Carrier, either orally or in writing.  If no written instructions are 
forwarded by the Shipper to the Carrier, Carrier's booking records shall govern assignment of Transit 
Service level and application of rate.  If Shipper does NOT specify a specific Transit Service, 
Carrier will forward shipments and assess freight charges based on Regular Transit Service.

will NOT alter Shipper's instructions or the Transit Service/rate level selected, EXCEPT in the 
following instances:

assessed freight charges based on the Transit Service level Shipper actually selected or the freight 
charges applicable to the Transit Service actually provided, whichever is lower.

Container Yard and is not forwarded on the first available sailing for the Transit Service selected, 
Carrier will give the Shipper the option of waiting until the next sailing for the Transit Service 
selected or of changing the Transit Service status of the shipment. If Shipper decides to change the 
Transit Service selected, freight charges shall be assessed on the basis of the Transit Service via 
which the shipment      actually moves.  In either case all charges for storage, container shifting
