RULE: 2.2  APPLICATION OF TARIFF RATE BASIS & CALCULATION OF CHARGES
Effective	1/20/2016
     


Except as otherwise provided in individual Tariff Rules, Algorithms or TLIs, rates and charges named 
in this Tariff are stated in U.S. Currency and apply per weight unit, per measurement unit, per 
container or lumpsum per shipment as specified.  Calculation of freight and additional charges will 
be based upon the applicable rate, times the number of units tendered for transportation, subject to 
the provisions named below.
     
a. Rates and/or additional charges stated on a weight unit basis ("W") apply per weight unit of 100 
pounds
     
  i. Freight and additional charges on shipments subject to rates or charges stated on a weight unit 
basis will be computed on the gross weight of the cargo PLUS the weight of all packing materials, 
pallets or shipping containers (exclusive of the weight of the ocean container) established at the 
time cargo is tendered for transportation at origin.
     
 ii. Carrier reserves the right to weigh or reweigh, on certified scales, any cargo tendered for 
shipment. Any weight so ascertained by the Carrier shall be deemed paramount and shall be used to 
compute freight and additional charges regardless of any other weight, certified or otherwise, 
declared or provided by the Shipper or his agent.  Shipper may however at his own expense, seek 
independent certification of the accuracy of any scales utilized by the Carrier.
     
b. Rates and/or additional charges stated on a measurement unit basis ("M") apply per measurement 
unit of 1 cubic foot.
              
  i. Freight and additional charges on shipments subject to rates or charges stated on a measurement 
unit basis will be computed on the overall measurement of each piece, package or unit in the 
shipment.  The cubical content of each piece, package or other unit   shall be the extreme dimensions 
of the length, width and height of such piece, package or unit.
     
 ii. Before any other calculations are made all fractional centimeter or inch dimensions will be 
disposed of as follows:     

   1. All fractions of less than one-half centimeter/inch shall be dropped.
     
   2. All fractions of one-half centimeter/inch or more shall be rounded up to the next full 
centimeter/inch.
     
iii. When calculating freight and additional charges of an irregular or unusually shaped piece, 
package or unit, the 3 (three) greatest dimensions shall be used as the rating measurements.  When 
calculating freight and additional charges of Barrels, Casks, Kegs, Drums or other cylindrical 
shipping units, measurements shall be taken on the square of the bilge.
     
 iv. Whenever an individual piece, package or other shipping unit is tendered for transportation and 
it is requested by Shipper, or is necessary because of the nature of the cargo or its packaging, that 
no cargo bestowed on top of same, Carrier will use the maximum inside height dimension of the 
transporting container as the height of the cargo when calculating the freight or assessorial charges.
     
c. Rates and/or additional charges stated on an alternating weight unit or measurement unit apply per 
the weight or measurement unit, defined in Rule 2.2 paragraphs a. or b. above, whichever produces the 
greatest revenue to the Carrier.
     
d. Rates and/or additional charges stated on a per container basis ("PC") apply per single container 
by capacity and type as defined below:
