Only a company officer, the Director of Pricing and Traffic, or an appropriate designee is authorized to sign transportation contracts.
Except where limited otherwise, Averitt's liability for loss, damage, or delay will not exceed five dollars ($5.00) per pound per package, subject to a maximum liability of one-hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) per shipment, whichever is lower, unless the Shipper, at time of shipment, has requested excess valuation coverage pursuant to the terms of AVRT 100.
