APPLICATION OF RATES
Rates are stated in dollars per trailer/container and are round trip for loading or unloading. Any rate, which is quoted in writing by Gold Point, but not published in this rate booklet, will be considered valid.
SERVICE Gold Point will make a professional effort to adhere to appointment times. Correct railroad/steamship information, equipment problems, terminal congestion and highway problems will influence upon our arrivals. We will contact our customers and advise them of any delays. We, however, reserve the right to consider "on time arrival" as up to one hour past an appointment time (rail pickups) and two hours (plus any delay hours inside marine terminals) past an appointment time (harbor pickups). Our customers must realize this and help accommodate.
Any additional charges incurred will be the responsibility of the billed party.
DROP AND PULL POLICY
We will provide "drop and pull service" to customers at their requests. Customers who are located in cities designated by an asterisk (*) will be billed an extra drop charge (80% of normal rate) for the "drop and pull service".
One hour free standby time will be allowed for loading or unloading without the assistance of the driver.
Shipments stopped in transit to complete loading or unloading will be charged per stop. One(1) hour free time will be allowed for each stop. Stop-off points not directly intermediate (approximately less than 5-mile deviation) may be charged at full tariff rate. Please call your Gold Point representative to confirm the exact rate.

BAD ORDER EQUIPMENT & FLIP CHARGES
