||Terms & Conditions
Agreement to Terms
By giving your envelope, package, or other shipment to Econo Express Courier (hereafter, "EEC") for carriage, or authorizing EEC to pickup in your name, you agree to all the terms stated herein. Anything you give to EEC for carriage, or anything we pickup in your name shall be defined as a "shipment" in these Agreement to Terms. You also agree to these terms on behalf of any third party with an interest in the shipment. No one is authorized to modify the terms of our agreement. EEC may modify these Terms and Conditions from time to time. Services provided are subject to the current Terms and Conditions. Current Terms and Conditions are available on the internet at www.EconoExpressCourier.com and a written copy may be obtained by calling EEC's office at (902) 406-4343.
Rates - Payment
Invoices are payable upon receipt. Any discounts applied to an order are subject to payment being received on time. Where payment for a shipment has not been received within 30 days of invoice, EEC has the option of recalculating all charges to those shown in the current tariff. Overdue balances are subject to interest calculated at 1.5% per month (19.6% per annum) which shall accrue and be payable to EEC on all outstanding monies. This is in addition to any legal rights and remedies available to EEC.
Limitations of Liability and Liabilities Not Assumed
If your shipment consists of envelopes, our maximum liability per envelope is limited to the lesser of your actual damages or $100, subject to a maximum of $5,000 for the entire shipment, unless you declare a higher value, pay an additional charge, and document your actual loss in a timely manner. If your shipment is other than envelopes, our maximum liability is limited to the lesser of your actual damages or $2.00 per pound (or $4.41 per kilogram), unless a higher ‘declared’ value is made at the time the shipment is placed and you pay an additional premium. If you declare a higher value and pay the additional charge, our maximum liability, whether the shipment is envelopes or other items, will be the lesser of your declared value or the actual loss.
We shall not be liable for any damages, whether direct, incidental (for example, alternate carrier transportation costs), consequential (for example, loss of profits or income), or special, whether or not we knew that such damages might be incurred in any manner resulting from misdelivery, failure to deliver or delay in delivery, in excess of: (i) in the case of fundamental breach of the contract of carriage, an amount equal to our maximum liability and the amount of all freight and other charges paid hereunder (ii) in the case of delay, a refund of your transportation charges, and (iii) in any other case, an amount equal to our maximum liability.
We shall not be liable for loss, damage or delay caused by events we cannot reasonably foresee or control, including but not limited to acts of God, perils of the air, weather conditions, mechanical delays, acts of public enemies, war, riots, strikes, civil commotions, a defect or inherent vice in the goods, the acts or default (including but not limited to improper or insufficient packing, securing, marking or addressing of the shipment) by the shipper, owner, or consignee of, or anyone else with an interest in the shipment or any part thereof, authority of laws, or acts or omissions of public authorities (including customs and quarantine officials) with actual or apparent authority.
We will not be liable if you or the consignee violates any of the terms of our agreement, or for loss or damage to shipments of prohibited items, including cash or currency. We cannot accept responsibility for loss, damage or delay of your shipment if caused by any carrier you have designated us to use for any portion of carriage.
Declared Value Limits
Filing a Claim
Without prior written agreement, the insured value of a shipment cannot exceed $5,000.00.
EEC will not be liable for loss, damage or delay to any packages unless notice thereof setting out particulars of the origin, destination and date of shipment of the goods and the estimated amount of claim in respect of such loss, damage or delay is given to us in writing within 15 days from the date of your shipment. Within 90 days after you notify us of your claim, you must send us all the information you have about it. EEC won’t be obligated to act on any claim until you have paid all of our charges, and you may not deduct the amount of your claim from those charges.
Responsibility for Payment
Regardless of the payment instructions you give us, you will always be primarily responsible for all delivery charges. You will also be responsible for any costs we may incur in either returning your shipment to you or warehousing it pending disposition.
You shall indemnify us and hold us harmless against all liabilities, losses, claims, damages, costs and expenses of any nature whatsoever incurred as a consequence of your non-observance of any regulation of whatever nature which you are required to observe with regard to or in connection with the carriage of the goods shipped.
The carriage of goods shall be deemed to include and be subject to the terms and conditions prescribed by law in the jurisdiction where the goods originate.
If any term, covenant or condition herein is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remainder of this agreement shall in no way be affected or impaired and shall be valid and enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
