The filing of a claim does not relieve the responsible party for payment of freight charges. Freight payment is necessary in order for a carrier to process a claim.
PRI-ZERO LOGISTICS CORP is not liable for any loss, late-delivery, non-delivery, or consequential damages caused by the act, default or omission of the carrier, Customer or any other party who claims interest in the shipment, or caused by the nature of the shipment or any defect thereof.

PRI-ZERO LOGISTICS CORP is only a freight broker. PRI-ZERO LOGISTICS CORP is not a freight carrier as it does not transport cargo.

These TERMS AND CONDITIONS, however, shall not serve to affect or limit the liability of the freight carrier performing the transportation services for the Customer. Instead, the terms and conditions of the freight carrier shall control the rights and responsibilities between the Customer and the Freight Carrier.
