Carrier Interchange Agreement

The trailer interchange agreement describes the companies involved in the transfer, where the transfer is to take place, and the transportation costs. (e) linging carriers considered to be owners – An authorized carrier that receives equipment related to a transit movement is considered by the owner of the equipment for the purpose of leasing the equipment to other authorized carriers for the purpose of encouraging the transfer to the place of destination or the return of the equipment after the end of the movement. Trailer exchange relates to the liabilities that an insured may incur for damage to a trailer while in its possession and does not require the trailer to be appropriate at the time of loss. It also includes “containers” under the definition of trailers, so it is most often used for intermodal operations where the equipment includes both a trailer chassis and a container. Trailer replacement requires, at the time of loss, a “written agreement on the replacement of trailers or equipment”, so it may not cover all situations in which a truck driver has an undetained trailer in his possession. (b) the power to operate. Carriers involved in connecting traffic must be registered with the Secretary in order to ensure the carriage of goods at the point where physical exchanges take place. Licensed rental drivers may replace equipment under the following conditions: (c) With bill of lading. Mail order traffic must continue to flow through the carrier of origin by means of a connossem bill of lading. The rates and revenues collected must be settled in the same way as if there had been no exchange. Charges for the use of equipment traded shall be distinct from subdivisions of common tariffs or shares thereof imposed on carriers by the application of local or proportional tariffs. Truckers often have to change trailers while traveling across the country to meet the overall planning of the entire transportation system.

For example, a truck driver can travel regularly from Los Angeles to Dallas. However, if goods are destined from Los Angeles to Chicago, the transportation company can arrange the transfer via a trailer interchange contract in Dallas for the trailer to reach its end goal. The same truck driver can pick up another trailer for his return to Los Angeles, which is part of another deal that ends in Los Angeles or further afield. A trailer can alternate several companies and many drivers as they drive across the country. In this way, trailer interchange agreements make it easier to transport goods, as no truck driver needs to travel the entire journey. Another company may acquire material damage to a trailer not in possession, which applies even if there is no written trailer exchange contract for transport. 3. Authorised air carriers, which are jointly owned and under common control, may exchange aircraft without meeting the requirements set out in paragraph (d)(1) of this Section as regards the withdrawal of aircraft identification.
