Prices stated are F.O.B. point of shipment, freight prepaid to destination specified in the order. Southern Pipe charges a shipping and handling fee (which includes internal handling and related costs) on each order, which is applied at time of order and reflected on Buyer’s invoice. Receipts for shipping and handling charges will not be furnished. COD shipments are not permitted. Other terms and conditions may apply for other than standard ground delivery (“Other Freight Services”), including, without limitation, expedited same day delivery, air freight, freight collect, export orders, hazardous materials, customer’s carrier, shipments outside the contiguous U.S. or other special handling by the carrier. Any charges incurred for Other Freight Services must be paid by Buyer. Fuel surcharges may be applied. If the product is damaged in transit, Buyer’s only recourse is to file a claim with the carrier.
After delivery by Southern Pipe to carrier or delivery service, Buyer assumes all risks of loss or damage to products for any cause whatsoever. Claims against Southern Pipe for shortages must be made in writing within 72 hours after receipt by Buyer and any claim made thereafter shall be barred. Any claims for loss of or damage to products in transit should be made promptly and directly to the carrier and not to Southern Pipe which shall have no liability therefor.
Delivery dates are approximate and Southern Pipe shall not be liable for any damage or penalty due to delays in delivery. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Southern Pipe shall not be liable for any delay due to the acts of Buyer, acts of non-performance of suppliers, strike, difference with workmen, accident, fire, flood, Acts of God, delay in transportation, shortage of materials, equipment breakdown, laws, regulations, orders or acts of any governmental body or cause, direct or indirect, resulting from circumstances beyond Southern Pipe’s reasonable control. In such event, delivery dates shall be deemed extended for a period equal to such delays. Orders are not subject to cancellations, delay or revision, in whole or in part, without approval of and upon terms agreed to by Southern Pipe and with full compensation to Southern Pipe for any loss sustained by reason of such cancellation, including a reasonable allowance for profit. Delay in delivery of any installment shall not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept remaining deliveries. If delays due to Buyer’s fault exceed 60 days in the aggregate, the entire purchase shall be due and payable to Southern Pipe on demand.
