Equipment Availability Forecast

Greatest Challenge

Please note that the equipment your company requires and which is being quoted on, will conditionally be available (forecast).

Route and engineering surveys will be quoted separately.

We reserve the right to withdraw our equipment and apply offset of demurrage and disbursements without prejudice should all of our terms and conditions of carriage and engagement not be complied with according to the agreed timescales and benchmarking.

Rate of Exchange

All duties, surcharges and quoted rates and charges are based on the prevailing Rand to Dollar or Sterling or Euro (which ever may be applicable) rate of exchange (“ROE”) on the day quoted. Consequently all our charges may be subject to change without prior warning or notice in the event of any extreme fluctuations in applicable foreign exchange rates. In the event of such change, we reserve the right to issue a further invoice claiming any increases that may be due to us by reason thereof which will also take into account any variations in final shipped volume, mass and quantity of the cargo applicable. For the avoidance of doubt, the ROE for Airfreight is determined by the monthly IATA US dollar exchange rate.
