Please review the following terms and conditions, which apply to all Bellair shipment services:

  1. In tendering this shipment, the Shipper agrees to these Conditions of Contract, which no agent or employee of the parties may alter, and that this airbill is Non-Negotiable and has been prepared by the Shipper. The Shipper certifies and represents to BELLAIR that the information inserted on the face of this airbill is complete and accurate. It is agreed among the parties involved that the conditions of carriage for this shipment are governed by BELLAIR's tariffs, available for inspection at BELLAIR offices, and which are hereby incorporated into this contract. NOTE: Shipper in this contract means the party from whom the shipment is received, the party who requests the shipment be transported by BELLAIR, any party having an interest in the shipment, and any party who acts as agent for any of the above.
  2. SHIPPER WARRANTS that each package in this shipment is properly described on the airbill, is properly marked and addressed, is packaged adequately to protect the enclosed goods to insure safe transportation with ordinary care in handling, and except as noted in good order and condition. For articles shipped in unenclosed containers that are adequately packaged and marked to insure safe transportation with ordinary care in handling, BELLAIR shall not be liable for damage/loss unless abusive handling and/or loss is evident and is so noted on the delivery receipt at time of delivery. NOTE: A shipment in which delivery is made in exchange for a clear delivery receipt shall be prima facie evidence of having received ordinary care in handling.
  3. At time of delivery, the CONSIGNEE MUST NOTE on the airbill any exceptions to the shipping containers that would indicate a discrepancy (shortage to the shipment, damage to the containers, or possible damage to the contents of the containers). The Consignee may not inspect the contents of the shipping containers until the Consignee signs for the shipment on the delivery receipt. NOTE: Such notations as "Subject to inspection" and "Subject to recount" are not exceptions.
  5. Due to the inherent nature of the air freight business, BELLAIR does not guarantee pick up, transportation, or delivery by a stipulated date or a stipulated time, nor shall BELLAIR be liable for the consequences of failure to do so.
  6. Overcharge claims must be received in WRITING by BELLAIR within 120 days after date of acceptance of the shipment by BELLAIR. All other claims (except concealed loss/damage claims) must be received in WRITING by BELLAIR 21 days after BELLAIR accepted the shipment. Concealed loss/damage claims (i.e., claims for loss or damage discovered by the Consignee after delivery and after a clear receipt has been given) must be received in WRITING by BELLAIR within 7 days after delivery, or if perishables, verbally within 48 hours. For damage claims and concealed loss claims, BELLAIR must be notified of the damage or concealed loss within 14 days of delivery and BELLAIR must be allowed the privilege to make inspection of the shipment and its container(s) and packaging material(s) at the delivery location shown on this airbill.

  7. BELLAIR's liability, in the absence of a higher declared value for carriage, is limited to a minimum of $50.00 per shipment or $0.50 per pound, per piece, of cargo lost, damaged, misdelivered or otherwise adversely affected. This limitation is subject to provisions as published in BELLAIR's governing tariffs in effect at the time of this shipment. Declared values for carriage in excess of $0.50 per pound, per piece, shall be subject to an excess valuation charge.
  8. Unless each piece of the shipment has a declared value stated and is specially identified on the BELLAIR airbill at time of shipment and is so identified on the BELLAIR airbill as being lost, damaged, destroyed or otherwise adversely affected at time of delivery, BELLAIR shall be liable subject to tariff provisions in effect at the time of the shipment for the average declared value of the shipment multiplied by the package weight of the piece(s) adversely affected. The average declared value of the shipment shall be determined by dividing the total declared value of the shipment by the total weight of the shipment.
  9. BELLAIR shall not be liable for loss, damage or delay caused by acts of God, public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority; strikes; labor disputes; weather; mechanical failures; aircraft failures; civil commotions; acts or omissions of customs or quarantine officials; the nature of the shipment or any defects thereof; public enemies; hazards incident to a state of war; acts of terrorism; and by acts, defaults or omissions of the Shipper or Consignee for failure to observe the Terms and Conditions of Contract contained in this airbill including but not limited to the improper packaging, marking, airbill information, and the rules relating to shipments not acceptable for transportation or shipments acceptable only under certain conditions as outlined below.

BELLAIR shall not be liable for any loss, damage, or delay, liabilities or penalties resulting from the transportation of any of the foregoing articles, however described or misdescribed in this airbill, and no employee or agent of BELLAIR has any authority to accept for transportation such articles or to waive the limitations herein contained.

  13. If this is an international shipment, liability rules under the Warsaw Convention shall apply, and BELLAIR accepts this airbill as a Shipper's Letter of Instructions with authorization to prepare and sign on Shipper's behalf an international air waybill. For international shipments, BELLAIR reserves the option to act as agent of the carrier instead of as a forwarder in which event the direct carrier's tariff shall apply to this shipment.

Except as otherwise provided in Carrier's tariffs or conditions of carriage, in carriage to which the Warsaw Convention does not apply Carrier's liability shall not exceed US $20.00 or the equivalent per kilogramme of goods lost, damaged or delayed, unless a higher value is declared by the shipper and a supplementary charge paid.
  15. Unless inserted otherwise on the face of the airbill, the C.O.D. amount of a shipment shall be deemed to be the declared value for carriage amount. This declared value for a carriage amount in excess of $0.50 per pound, per piece, shall be subject to an excess valuation charge.
  16. C.O.D. amounts must be paid to the carrier in cash, or by cashier's check, certified check, money order or if authorized by the shipper in writing or by endorsement on the face of this airbill BELLAIR will accept the consignee's check made payable to the shipper. The sold responsibility of BELLAIR shall be to secure the appropriate financial instruments requested by the shipper and to exercise due care and diligence in forwarding it to the shipper.

  17. BELLAIR shall have the right to (i) substitute alternate carriers or other means of transportation and (ii) select the routing or deviate from that shown on the face hereof.
  18. This shipment is subject to inspection by BELLAIR, however, BELLAIR is not obligated to perform such inspection.

Such limitations of liability shall extend to the selection by BELLAIR of the providers of the auxiliary services. Auxiliary services are those which are performed prior or subsequent to transportation and which may be billed directly by the provider of the service or by BELLAIR. Providers of auxiliary services are contractors for the Shipper or Consignee and are not agents for BELLAIR. Local cartage is the movement of the unpackaged/uncrated freight. NOTE: Under no circumstances will the liability of BELLAIR for loss/damage/delay which is a result of any auxiliary services performed by BELLAIR or its agents be greater than the liability contained in this contract.
  22. Should BELLAIR successfully defend itself for any legal actions brought by any party with an interest in this shipment, BELLAIR shall be entitled to reasonable attorney fees and costs.
  23. Surcharges may apply for after hour and special services.
