RULE: 26 - TIME/VOLUME RATES IN DOMESTIC OFFSHORE COMMERCE	
Effective 2/09/16
	
The Rates and Charges named in the Commodity Descriptions and TLIs Tariff Line Items of this Tariff 
which are subject to this Rule named below apply when, and ONLY when, the Shipper has guaranteed in 
writing to tender for transportation the minimum quantity of cargo that has been specified in such 
Commodity Description and TLI making reference hereto.
          
a. NOTIFICATION OF INTENT TO PARTICIPATE
The Shipper MUST notify the Carrier either in writing or orally (and confirmed in writing) that he 
intends to utilize a particular Time-Volume rate published herein PRIOR to tendering any cargo to the
Carrier for transportation.  Such notification should include the commodities to be tendered, the 
expected weekly or monthly volume, and the origin and destination of the shipments.  All 
notifications, questions or inquiries should be addressed to the Carrier at the address shown in Rule 
19 of this Tariff.
       
b. ALTERNATION OF RATES
Except as may be otherwise specifically provided, the Time-Volume rates subject hereto do NOT
alternate with any other rate(s) named in this Tariff, or in any other Tariff lawfully filed with the
STB, that applies on the same commodity, from and to the same ports and/or points, in the same 
shipping form.
          
c. APPLICATION OF ADDITIONAL CHARGES
Unless otherwise provided in individual rules or any provision of this Tariff, the Time-Volume rates
named in this Tariff which are subject to this Rule are subject to all applicable Rules, Regulations
and Assessorial Charges specified in this Tariff.
      
d. AMENDMENT OF TIME-VOLUME RATES
Time-Volume rates subject to this Rule will NOT be amended, altered or changed in any way prior to 
the expiration of the Time-Volume rates and provisions, EXCEPT in accordance with specific provisions 
authorizing specified changes in the Time-Volume TLI.
     
e. BILL OF LADING NOTATIONS
B/Ls issued covering shipments moving under the Time-Volume rates subject to this Rule MUST be claused
claused in substantially the following manner:
       
    " Time-Volume rate per Item ___ (here specify) named in Caribtrans
      Logistics, LLC's Tariff Section applicable."
          
If such clause is inadvertently omitted, Shipper may request that a corrected B/L be issued.
     
f. MAINTENANCE OF SHIPMENT RECORDS
Copies of each B/L and Booking Notice (including cancelations) will be maintained by Carrier for not 
less than 5 (five) years after the expiration of the applicable Time-Volume TLI, and may be inspected
by the Shipper upon request.

      
g. FORCE MAJEURE OR CANCELATION/DISRUPTION IN SERVICE
In the event of Force Majeure or other emergency conditions which cause a disruption in the Carrier's
service or the Shipper's (or Consignee's) ability to tender or receive shipments on a regular basis, t
the time period for the Shipper to satisfy the minimum volume of cargo required in the applicable 
Time-Volume TLI to which the Shipper is a signatory, will be extended by the same number of days such
Force Majeure or emergency conditions remain in effect.  "Force Majeure" or "Emergency Conditions"
are defined as situations such as strikes or other work stoppages, sabotage, fires, marine disasters, 
Acts of God or the Public Enemy, Rail derailments, rebellion, hostilities, or any other such events 
or causes which are beyond the control of the Carrier or the Shipper.  The party invoking the
provisions of this Item, because the conditions described above have occurred, shall notify the other 
party immediately in writing (or orally and confirmed in writing), and shall include in such 
notification the nature, extent and expected duration of such conditions.  Once normal operations 
have been resumed, Carrier will notify Shipper, in writing, of the new date by which the minimum 
cargo volume must be satisfied, and the Time-Volume TLIs subject to this Rule will be amended on
lawful notice with the Federal Maritime Commission to reflect the new expiration date.
     
h. CARGO SHUT OUT
If for any reason Carrier cannot accept, handle or transport Shipper's cargo when tendered for 
transportation, Carrier will provide Shipper with a declined booking statement, and all cargo volume 
that was shut out or declined by Carrier will be INCLUDED in the calculation of cargo volume when 
determining if the Time-Volume minimum has been met or exceeded.

i. RE-RATING SHIPMENTS FOR NON-FULFILLMENT OF CARGO MINIMUM
If Shipper tenders less than 100% (one-hundred percent) of the volume of cargo required in the Time-
Volume TLI to which the Shipper is a signatory the following rate adjustments will be made - all 
shipments actually transported will be rerated at the otherwise applicable Tariff rate in effect on 
the date each shipment was received by the Carrier. Such additional freight charges are due and 
payable immediately upon the expiration of the Time-Volume shipping period.
