How does contract pricing increase costs over the life of the agreement? As a general rule, prices for services are guaranteed for a period of 12 months. After this period, there is an annual escalator, as for example. B a percentage increase or an increase based on the consumer price index (CPI). An in-depth contract determines where the potential for price increases will be with 3PL. 10.1 The shipper and the carrier recognize and accept that the risk of loss of goods during transportation is borne by the carrier as soon as the carrier`s truck leaves the shipper`s dock. The driver has the right to check the damage suffered by any shipment before leaving the loading station and has the right to refuse damaged goods that have been reported for delivery. In addition, the carrier`s driver acknowledges the damage found before leaving the loading station, for which he receives goods on behalf of the shipper, and informs the personnel responsible for the loading service at the site. In the event of deterioration of the goods prior to delivery to the final destination, the driver must mention this damage to the bill of lading and, in addition, inform the party receiving the shipment by providing a copy of the car letter containing a description of the damaged goods. A logistics services contract from a third-party provider defines the terms of service that 3PL must provide, as well as the protection of profits and the free provision of damages and other unforeseen costs to the contractor. Storage losses can result from paperwork, computer problems, processing errors and theft.

Many 3PL inventory systems and processes are fully barcoded and have high accuracy. The agreement should have indicated a loss of contraction, usually up to 0.5% contraction. This means that the customer records the first loss of 0.5% and that the 3PL takes the cost above 0.5%. This is generally calculated on the basis of actual costs over an annual period. But the monthly responsibility for inventory accuracy, for example. B the stock valuation trajectory, allows you to better manage all stock losses. The 3PL is not responsible for the negligence of customers, agents or shipowners in the management of stocks. Agreements often stipulate whether one party can recruit staff from the other party. Is there a waiting period to rent after termination? 3.5 Notwithstanding the fuel surcharge/discount provided for in Section 3.3 and the annual rate setting in Section 3.4, the shipper or carrier may endeavour to make an adjustment by way beyond the rates or provisions provided for at points 3.3 and 3.4 by written appeal to the other party due to unusual, unavoidable and unshakeable events. These rate adjustments are allowed once per calendar quarter and retroactive to the date of entry that makes the correction necessary. The parties are doing everything in their power to agree on such mutually accepted tariff adjustments. (j) provide the shipper with specialized services that may include, among other things, expedited transit, expedited processing of claims and/or the use of special equipment such as special equipment (if necessary, special equipment required).
