When cargo is received at Carriers' container yard (CY) or container freight station (CFS) and Carrier is responsible for

loading the cargo into a Carrier owned or leased piece of equipment the below minimum volume will be guaranteed for

stowage and for rating purposes subject to the maximum weight limitations as set forth in this tariff.
 

Minimum volume guarantee for Carrier Loaded containers:


20 Container                         850 CFT
40X Container                     1700 CFT
20 Refrigerated Container      750 CFT
40 Refrigerated Container     1500 CFT


Cargo which exceeds the capacity of the container shall be considered overflow cargo and will be subject to additional charges.

Overflow cargo shall be rated based on the applicable overflow rate established in Carrier's Tariff and subject to the applicable

accessorial charges for LCL cargo. If there is no overflow rate established for the specific commodity, the full container load net

ocean freight rate applicable to the Carrier Loaded cargo will be used to calculate the overflow ocean freight rate by dividing the

full container load net ocean freight rate by the minimum volume guarantee cubic feet of the container. Overflow ocean freight rates

are subject to the applicable accessorial charges for LCL cargo.

Example 1:
Customer delivers 880 CFT of cargo and Carrier is able to load 850 CFT into the container. Cargo exceeds the capacity of the

container by 30 CFT and no overflow rate established.

A) Shipment Total CFT 880 CFT Less (minimum volume guaranteed) -
                                  850 CFT (20' Container)
                       Overflow 30 CFT


B) (Full-load container load ocean freight rate) / 850 CFT = Rate per CFT

C) 30 CFT X Rate per CFT = Ocean Freight on for the overflow cargo.
 

Example 2:
 

Customer delivers 870 CFT of cargo and carrier is able to load 830 CFT into the container. Cargo exceeds the capacity by 20 CFT

and no overflow rate established.


A.                          Shipment Total CFT 870 CFT
          Less minimum volume guarantee 850 CFT
                                            Overflow = 20 CFT
 

B) (Full-load container load ocean freight rate) / 850 CFT = Rate per CFT
 

C) 20 CFT X Rate per CFT = Ocean Freight for the overflow cargo.
