The minimum claim amount is $150 CAD, and the general freight deductible is $350 CAD. For fragile shipments, electronics, machinery, or furniture, the deductible is $600 CAD.

Invoices & Terms

We are committed to providing you with the Proof of Deliveries (PODs) as quickly as possible. Our invoice terms start from the date of receipt, regardless of whether or not the POD is available at that time.

If the bill to party does not have a pre-established credit arrangement with Briere Transportation, payment must be processed before the shipment is released. Failure to make payment will result in the shipment being retained and the bill to party will be held responsible for incurring storage charges for any delay.

Your final invoice will include applicable state/provincial taxes, which are not reflected in your initial quote.

Kindly note in the event of any discrepancies, we may perform a shipment audit and rebill for any additional charges up to a year after delivery.

The shipper, consignee and bill to can all be held responsible for the payment of all freight charges. If one defaults for whatever reason the other party will be held liable.

Accounts in overdue or delinquent status may be placed on hold and interest of 2.5 percent per month compounded monthly may be charged on the unpaid balance. Delinquent accounts are subject to cancellation without notice with subsequent third-party action. If the Customer fails to pay the Service Provider all amounts which become due, the Service Provider will refer such matter to an attorney or collection agency. The Customer agrees to pay, in addition to the amounts due plus any interest charges, any costs incurred by the Service Provider as a result of third-party action, including reasonable legal and collection fees.

These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between the parties involved in each shipment, superseding all prior negotiations, representations, or agreements.
