The total fees as described in the corresponding quote(s) for each particular conveyance of goods covers the expenses only so far as all of the cargo information provided by the Client is true.

All paperwork outlined in our Client On-boarding Procedures, attached as Exhibit A, must be submitted by the Client no later than 7:00pm the evening before, or the run will not commence the following day.

The value of each shipping vehicle must remain below two million dollars ($2,000,000.00) USD. In the event transportation is delayed in notice (less than 96 hrs notice), delayed, or altered, for any reason other than actions caused by Patriot Shield or its subcontractors, and to the extent the delays or alterations cause additional expenses to Patriot Shield from either its subcontractors or its own employees / equipment, those fees will be passed along to the Client and include, but are not limited to, expenses from payroll, hotels, gas, rescheduling fees, unloading/loading fees, etc. In addition, any delays or alterations that require more than the quoted total number of conveyances needed based on the information provided by the Client in Exhibit A of the corresponding individual delivery request forms, the Client may be charged up to an additional one hundred percent (100%) of the originally quoted amount per delivery for each additional conveyance required to perform the obligations of the contract. If the Client requests Patriot Shield’s Secure Storage services, or If the Client is unable to receive the product within 24 hours of the originally scheduled delivery, the Client agrees that Patriot Shield will store the product at their secured facility or will make adequate arrangements for which the Client will reimburse all expenses and pay an additional rate until received by the Client of:
