Except as otherwise provided on individual web rate pages (TLIs),
when, due to no fault, negligence or error on the part of the
Carrier, an LCL Shipment or Vehicle is held at Carrier's nominated
origin or destination CFS, warehouse or terminal beyond the Free
Time specified herein because:
  
 1. Shipper's instructions, documentation, clearance, release, or
     Cargo markings (See Rule 2.9) have not been provided or received; or
  
 2. Cargo is held at the request of a Shipper; or
  
 3. Cargo is held because of Consignee's refusal or inability to accept
     it; or
  
 4. Cargo is held while awaiting Consignee's delivery instructions,
     customs clearance, or import documentation; or
  
 5. Caribtrans cannot locate Consignee; or
  
 6  of any reason not ascribable to the Carrier,
  
and as a result the Cargo remains in Carrier's nominated CFS, warehouse
or terminal, beyond the specified Free Time, such LCL shipment or
Vehicle will be SBJ to the terms and provisions named herein and will be
SBJ to the per Diem STORAGE CHARGES (STOR) provided.  STOR Charges shall
shall be in additional to all other applicable charges.
  
a. For purposes of this Rule, except as otherwise provided, the term
   "Shipper" shall mean the Shipper, the Consignee or any person
   acting for or on behalf of the Shipper or Consignee. 
  
b. Per Diem storage Charges are applicable when cargo is held in
   Caribtrans' possession beyond the applicable origin or destination
   free time period and is a charge relating to use of the terminal
   or storage location.
  
c. When a shipment is held beyond the allotted Free Time due to a
   request by the Shipper, the Shipment will begin to incur per diem
   STOR Charges on the day following the expiration of Free Time (as
   shown below).  Free Time will commence as of the day Cargo is
   received at origin CFS/terminal or storage location, regardless of
   when Shipper requests Cargo is to be held.
  
d. In the event Shipper fails to provide the proper export
   documentation and/or proper marking by the end of the allotted Free
   Time, Caribtrans will assess storage Charges, following the
   expiration of the appropriate Free Time as indicated, until
   documentation and release is received by Caribtrans or until
   Shipper provides proper cargo marking instructions as required in
   in Rule 2.9.
  
e. Per Diem storage Charges, when applicable, will be assessed per each
   calendar day, or fraction thereof, up to date of sailing but not
   including sailing day.
  
f. Caribtrans will refuse to deliver or release any Cargo which has
   accrued storage Charges if such Charges have not been paid. 
   Shipper may contract for delivery, or receive the cargo at
   Caribtrans' terminal facility, when, and only when, the per diem
   storage Charges have been paid in full. 
  
g. Perishable goods, or goods which are susceptible to damage
   through temperature changes or other causes incident to storage,
   will be accepted for storage solely at Shipper's/Consignee's risk
   and Shipper/Consignee shall indemnify and hold Caribtrans harmless
   from any and all liability and expense for such damages that might
   result from storage conditions unless such damage is caused by the
   negligence of Caribtrans.
  
h. After the expiration of the allowed Free Time provided herein,
   Caribtrans is under no obligation to store Cargo at its nominated CFS
   location and such Cargo may be considered abandoned and removed from
   Caribtrans' facility.
  
i. Caribtrans will notify the Shipper, on or before, the date storage
   Charges begin to accrue. Should Caribtrans fail to meet this
   obligation, Caribtrans shall waive storage charges up to the day
   of notification. 
  
j. REFUSED OR UNCLAIMED CARGO:
  
  1. If cargo cannot be delivered because of the Consignee's refusal or
     inability to accept it or because Caribtrans cannot locate
     Consignee, Caribtrans will make a diligent effort to notify the
     Shipper/Consignor accordingly.
  
  2. If Caribtrans is not given satisfactory disposition instructions
     by the Shipper/Consignor, or if satisfactory financial guarantees
     for payment of all charges due are not made, after Caribtrans has
     provided notice of Cargo's status as unclaimed or refused, within
     six months of cargo receipt at Caribtrans' facility, Caribtrans will
     consider the cargo abandoned and it will be removed from
     Caribtrans' facility for disposal.
