SURE LOGIX LLC Service Warranties

Carrier warrants that it maintains bodily injury and property damage insurance as required by federal statute
(Form BMC-91X on file). Subject to an agreed release rate, it maintains all risk cargo insurance in an amount of
not less than $100,000 per truckload. Carrier warrants that at all times it will conduct operations as an
independent contractor and not as an employer or joint venturer with customer. With respect to air cargo,
Action subscribes to a uniform safety and security protocol.

Weights and Measures

Unless specifically otherwise agreed to in writing, SURE LOGIX LLC retains the right to re-weigh and/or
measure, for the purpose of applying correct charges, any shipment(s) at any time while in SURE LOGIX

LLC’s custody and control, and to collect the appropriate charges without first advising, reporting back to, pre-
alerting, or otherwise notifying the Shipper, Consignee or other interested party. SURE LOGIX LLC reserves
the right to assess transportation charges based on volumetric standards. Dimensional weight pricing is
applicable on all shipments with a total volume of more than 194 cubic inches.
Dimensional weight is calculated by multiplying length by width by height of each package (all in inches) and
dividing by 194. The dimensional weight of each package in the shipment is added, and the total dimensional
weight of the shipment is then compared to the actual weight of the shipment. If the dimensional weight
exceeds the actual weight, transportation charges for the shipment are based on the dimensional weight.

Cargo Loss or Damage

All shipments handled via truck from origin to destination shall be governed by 49 U.S.C. ‘14706 and
movements having a prior or subsequent movement by air shall be exempt from federal statute. As is customary
in the expedited freight industry, SURE LOGIX LLC follows simplified rating procedures predicated upon a
release rate evaluation of 50 cents per pound per article. Unless otherwise noted and agreed to in writing,
this limit of liability shall apply to all shipments tendered to SURE LOGIX LLC and shall limit not only SURE
LOGIX LLC’s liability, but also the liability of the motor carriers and other transportation service providers in
care, custody and control of shipments pursuant to arrangements made by SURE LOGIX LLC. To ensure strict
compliance with surface transportation statutes, SURE LOGIX LLC’s customers are allowed to choose an
alternative higher limit of liability. In the absence of declared value, the liability of SURE LOGIX LLC and its
transportation service providers shall be 50 cents per pound for that part of the shipment damaged or lost, but
not less than fifty USD ($50) per shipment. The weight used to determine the limit of liability shall be the same
that is used to determine the freight charges of the shipment. In the event that the weight of a lost or damaged
article cannot be determined and the lost article was part of a larger shipment, an average weight of each piece
may be used in the settlement of the claim. Such average will be determined by dividing the weight by the total
number of pieces in the shipment. Shipments with a declared value in excess of fifty cents ($0.50) per pound or
fifty USD ($50) per shipment, whichever is greater, shall be subject to increased freight charges. To arrange for
a higher released valuation, contact 504-463-0314 before tender.

Any shipment with a declared value of in excess of $25,000 which is inadvertently accepted without prior
written approval of an SURE LOGIX LLC corporate officer will be released to a maximum of fifty cents USD
($0.50) per pound and subject to the surcharge provided for herein. In the event the party tendering shipment to
SURE LOGIX LLC is obligated for greater limits of liability pursuant to a through air bill by contract or
otherwise, it shall assume sole responsibility for the liability to the extent it exceeds the agreed release rate and
shall indemnify SURE LOGIX LLC and its carriers and shall waive subrogation with respect to any insurance
purchased to provide excess liability coverage.

Commodities Not Accepted for Transport

SURE LOGIX LLC does not hold out to transport shipments requiring placarding for transportation by surface
or for shipments for air which are restricted by federal regulations. Hazardous materials shall not be accepted
for carriage under any circumstances without prior written consent. Items of a fragile nature that may be
inadvertently accepted without the written approval of an SURE LOGIX LLC corporate officer shall still be
subject to all terms and conditions, including but not limited to limitation of liability, whether or not any
declared value is made.

Reasonable Dispatch

No time is fixed for the completion of carriage, and SURE LOGIX LLC shall not be liable for any loss or
damage caused by failure to commence or complete carriage within a certain time. SURE LOGIX LLC
assumes no obligation to carry goods over any particular route. SURE LOGIX LLC assumes no obligation to
carry the goods in any particular vehicle and are authorized to select alternate means of transportation and
deviation from route without liability.

No Special Damages

SURE LOGIX LLC shall have no liability for any special or consequential damages. All terms and conditions
of the standard waybill attached hereto as Appendix A shall apply. Shipments which do not have a prior or
subsequent shipment by air shall be governed by the Carmack Amendment, 49 U.S.C. ‘14706 and the released
rate provisions contained herein shall be construed as complying with the notice, election of rates and other

Claims Handling-Time Limits and Procedures

Cargo claims for loss or damage of surface transportation moves must be filed within 9 months in accordance
with 49 C.F.R. 370. The statute of limitation for filing suit shall be 2 years and 1 day after issuance of written
denial. For shipments having a prior or subsequent movement by air, the deadline for instituting suit shall be 1
year after the claim is denied in whole or in part. All claims should be sent to SURE LOGIX LLC in writing via
certified mail or the like at P.O. Box 2354, Kenner, LA, 70063. No claims shall be considered, and no claims
shall be paid unless and until all transportation charges have been paid and customer agrees that cargo claims
cannot be offset against freight charges. General principles of federal transportation law shall apply and any
action against SURE LOGIX LLC shall only be brought on State Court or Federal Court (where applicable) having
jurisdiction in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. In addition to the released evaluation agreed to pursuant to
these terms and conditions, Customer agrees that any lower limit of liability agreed to between the Shipper and
the logistics provider which retains SURE LOGIX LLC shall apply and that no party shall seek to recover from
SURE LOGIX LLC a greater sum than any limitation agreed to pursuant to a through bill of lading.
Where a forwarder, broker, or logistics provider tendering traffic to SURE LOGIX LLC has agreed to higher
limits of liability with its shipper, in tendering shipments to SURE LOGIX LLC, it agrees that the maximum
liability of SURE LOGIX LLC and its carriers shall not exceed the released rate limitation set forth herein and
that it will indemnity and hold harmless SURE LOGIX LLC and its carriers from all claims, including
attorney’s fees in the event that amounts greater than agreed to herein are sought.
