DM agrees to provide DM’s Customer discounted LTL common carrier rates, contract services (Truckload) rates, and operational support services. DM’s Customer understands that all billings or invoices for the transport of DM’s Customer’s freight with DM’s carriers will be forwarded from the billing carrier directly to DM for auditing and processing. DM will audit and change (if corrections are necessary) bills received from DM’s participating carriers in accordance with DM’s carrier contracts. The freight bill amounts due are invoiced to Client weekly with the freight bill audit report and payable within thirty (30) days of receipt. All rates/discounts are off of the current DMT rate base unless otherwise noted. Customer must contest the original bill or subsequent bills within 180 days of the receipt of the original bill in order to have the right to dispute/collect any such over charges. Failure to make payments within terms may result in cancellation of services and extended credit.
Amounts over 60 days due from the date of invoice will incur interest at a rate equal to one and one -half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is lower. All costs incurred by DM to obtain payment of past due amounts, including but not limited to legal fees, outside collection companies, and court filing fees shall be the responsibility of DM’s Customer.
