Any new damage should be clearly documented as an exception on the Bill of Lading. Customer or Customer’s Agent is responsible for signing the Bill of Lading and ensuring they receive a final copy signed by the Carrier, which will serve as the conclusive report on the Shipment’s condition, particularly in cases of disputes with the Carrier. Once again, it is advised that Customer or Customer’s Agent take photographs of the Shipment from all angles before signing the Bill of Lading.
  30. Customer acknowledges and accepts that if they or their Customer Agent sign the Carrier’s Form or Bill of Lading at the Destination without noting any damage, regardless of lighting or weather conditions at the time of inspection, it will confirm that Customer received the Shipment in satisfactory condition. Subsequently, both TRUCKBOARD and the Carrier will be relieved of any further responsibility.
  31. TRUCKBOARD shall (i) endeavor to pick up and deliver Customer’s Shipment as close to Customer’s door or Customer’s designated Point of Origin and Destination as legally and safely feasible, and (ii) transport the Shipment in a commercially reasonable manner.
  32. At the Point of Origin and/or Destination, TRUCKBOARD may provide a Carrier Form, receipt, or Bill of Lading.

Any disputes or inquiries about these documents should be directed to Carrier.

The Shipment may also be subject to the Carrier’s lien for transportation charges until the outstanding balance is paid in full. Any and all expenses related to storage and redelivery will be the sole responsibility of Customer. Customer acknowledges that there will be no recourse to TRUCKBOARD for reimbursement in such circumstances.
  37. Customer has the option to cancel an Order at any time without incurring any costs or cancellation fees, provided that a Carrier has not yet accepted the Order. In the event that an Order is canceled after a Carrier has accepted it, for reasons including but not limited to Customer-initiated cancellations, TRUCKBOARD’s cancellation due to Customer’s breach of these TERMS, or the Carrier’s inability to pick up the Shipment upon arriving at the Point of Origin, Customer agrees to a minimum cancellation fee of $449.00. This fee is applicable because TRUCKBOARD’s services have been provided at this stage. Furthermore, Customer acknowledges the potential for additional cancellation fees, such as a dry run fee imposed by a Carrier and other vendors engaged to fulfill the Order.
  38. Customer is entitled to a refund solely for the portion of services that remains unfulfilled. If Additional Services were paid for but not delivered for any reason, and the Shipment was subsequently delivered, the Customer’s only recourse is a refund for the unfulfilled portion of the Additional Services fees.
  39. Customer must submit cancellation requests in writing via email, sent to [email protected] TRUCKBOARD will not accept cancellations made via telephone, text, chat, or any other communication medium.
  40. TRUCKBOARD functions as a property transportation broker and, therefore, bears no liability for any cargo loss or damage claims under any circumstances.
  41. In cases where Customer has a claim related to loss or damage to a Shipment, it is imperative for Customer to understand and agree that the party responsible for all such claims is the Carrier, not TRUCKBOARD. Customer is responsible for directly filing any claim with the Carrier responsible for transporting the Shipment.
  42. Should Customer choose to initiate a claim against the Carrier, it is Customer’s obligation to promptly report such a claim to TRUCKBOARD, with a deadline of no later than forty-eight (48) hours following the delivery. This allows TRUCKBOARD to provide the Customer with relevant Carrier-related documents in a commercially reasonable manner.
  43. Customer is hereby notified and comprehends that claims against motor Carriers are subject to federal law, specifically the Carmack Amendment to the ICC Termination Act of 1995, found at 49 U.S.C. §14706. Claims against ocean Carriers, on the other hand, are generally governed by the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act, 46 U.S.C. §30701. In the event of a claim, Customer is encouraged to seek independent legal counsel (at Customer’s own expense) for guidance on these laws.
  44. Customer acknowledges and agrees that neither TRUCKBOARD nor the Carrier can be held responsible for any cargo loss or damage resulting from acts or omissions beyond their control. Such factors include, but are not limited to, damage caused by weather conditions such as hail or storms, acts of God, riots, strikes, political unrest, acts of terrorism, as well as loose, worn, or broken parts of a Shipment, and the presence of personal items in the Shipment.
  45. Customer hereby undertakes the responsibility to indemnify, defend, and shield TRUCKBOARD, along with our affiliated entities, as well as our respective employees, officers, and directors, from any and all losses, liabilities, damages, payments, settlements, judgments, penalties, fines, expenses (inclusive of reasonable attorneys’ fees), and costs. This encompasses suits, actions, and claims—whether they are actual, potential, threatened, or pending—brought forth by any individual or entity.
  46. Such claims may involve damages resulting from personal injury or loss of life, property damage (including real property), environmental concerns, claim liability, and associated damages. These claims may arise due to the actions or omissions of Customer, its agents, employees, or representatives.
  47. TRUCKBOARD’s total cumulative liability for any and all claims and damages, whether arising from statute, contract, tort, or otherwise, shall not, under any circumstances, exceed the total fees paid by Customer to TRUCKBOARD for TRUCKBOARD’s services under the respective order confirmation.
  48. Except as otherwise provided herein, TRUCKBOARD makes no warranties for any of its services and hereby disclaims all warranties or representations, expressed or implied, including any implied warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or use, and any warranties arising from course of dealing, usage, or trade practice.
  49. Under no circumstances will TRUCKBOARD be liable or responsible for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential (including damages from loss of business, lost profits, litigation, or the like), special, exemplary, punitive, or other damages, under any legal theory, arising out of or in any way relating to a shipment or these terms, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
  50. Disputes, controversies, or claims arising between the parties in connection with these TERMS, an Order, TRUCKBOARD’s services, or any other Customer engagement with TRUCKBOARD shall be resolved through binding arbitration instead of court proceedings, except if Customer or TRUCKBOARD (1) qualifies to bring claims in a small claims court, or (2) seeks legal action in a court with jurisdiction to prevent intellectual property rights’ infringement, including the pursuit of temporary restraining orders. This arbitration agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law.Arbitration proceedings do not involve judges or juries, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. Nevertheless, an arbitrator can grant the same remedies and relief as a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and statutory damages.Before initiating arbitration, Customer must send a signed letter, individually outlining their claims, desired relief, and request for arbitration to TRUCKBOARD at 1300 S FORT HARRISON AVE STE200, CLEARWATER FL 33756, via certified mail, Federal Express, UPS, or USPS express mail with a required signature. TRUCKBOARD will do the same, except if there is no physical address on file for Customer, by sending an electronic mail to the last known address. Unless otherwise specified herein, the arbitration will be administered by the National Arbitration Mediation (“NAM”) under its rules, including for Consumer-Related Disputes. Customer and TRUCKBOARD also agree to delegate the issue of arbitrability to an arbitrator. Payment of administration and arbitrator fees will adhere to NAM’s rules, but all filing fees will be covered by the filing party. Should Customer prevail, they may seek reimbursement of fees and costs, whereas TRUCKBOARD may seek attorney’s fees and costs if the arbitration deems Customer’s claims frivolous. Arbitration will involve only one arbitrator, not a panel. Customer can choose between telephone arbitration, written submissions, or in-person proceedings in the county where Customer resides or another mutually agreed location. In cases of multiple disputes on similar issues, claims will be arbitrated in the order they were filed, with a three-year limit. This arbitration agreement remains in effect after the termination of these TERMS.
  51. Class Action Waiver. Both parties agree that dispute resolution proceedings or lawsuits, whether in arbitration or court, will be limited to individual claims and will not include class or representative actions. Consequently, Customer forfeits the right to bring claims on behalf of a class of individuals. However, Customer retains the option to pursue individual claims for public injunctive relief and in small claims court. This provision does not prevent the parties from settling claims on a class-wide basis or coordinating claims filed in arbitration.
  52. Enforceability. If any part of this arbitration agreement is invalidated, the exclusive jurisdiction in the section titled “Governing Law; Jurisdiction” will govern any court claims related to these Terms.
  53. Jury Trial and Small Claims Court. Should a claim proceed in court instead of arbitration, both parties waive the right to a jury trial. Additionally, Customer or TRUCKBOARD may initiate legal action in any court with jurisdiction to prevent intellectual property rights’ infringement, including seeking temporary restraining orders.
  54. Nothing in these TERMS or Customer’s utilization of TRUCKBOARD’s services shall be interpreted as establishing a partnership, joint venture, employment, or agency relationship between the parties. Neither party has the right or authority, in writing or otherwise, to create any warranty, liability, or obligation on behalf of the other party, whether express or implied. Both parties intend to maintain their status as independent contractors, each responsible for its own actions.
  55. Customer may not assign any rights under these TERMS without prior written consent from TRUCKBOARD, except as expressly provided in these TERMS. These TERMS are binding upon the parties and extend to their respective successors and permitted assigns.
  56. If any provision of these TERMS is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be modified or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary to preserve the full force and effect of these TERMS.
  57. These TERMS constitute the entire agreement between Customer and TRUCKBOARD, superseding all prior written or oral representations. This agreement may only be amended by TRUCKBOARD. By proceeding with the transaction, Customer confirms having read, fully understood, and agreed to these TERMS.
  58. Customer waives any claims or defenses based on not having read, known, or comprehended these TERMS in their entirety.
  59. The failure of TRUCKBOARD to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these TERMS shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. Any waiver by TRUCKBOARD must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative.
  60. TRUCKBOARD retains the right to utilize Customer’s name, as well as TRUCKBOARD’s name, logo, and trademarks, and to identify Customer as a TRUCKBOARD customer for marketing, promotional, and similar purposes on TRUCKBOARD’s websites and in other communications and materials provided to existing or potential TRUCKBOARD customers, partners, and investors. To decline this right, Customer must email [email protected], indicating the desire not to be used as a reference.
  61. These TERMS encompass the entire agreement between Customer and TRUCKBOARD, governing the terms and conditions of Customer’s use of our services, and superseding all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written. However, Customer may also be subject to additional terms and conditions, posted policies (including, but not limited to, the Privacy Policy), guidelines, or rules applicable when using TRUCKBOARD’s services.
