Va Common Carriers Warned Of Violating Credit Rules 1 1 I Heads Promise Enforcement Actions Unless Com panies Comply With Commission Regulations i 7 1 Unless motor common carriers of property with heac quarters or branches and terminals in Charlotte comply more carefully with the Interstate Commerce commission rules governing the settlement of tariff rates and charges it will be necessary to resort to enforcement action whic' would involve both carriers and the shippers who are be ing favored by the jextension of credit beyond the currently prescribed limits Paul A Sherier district supervisor of the Bureau of Motor Carriers I warne yesterday Under the law It waa pointed out common carriers of property In interstate commerce by motor vehicle are prohibited from delivering or relinquishing possession at destination of freight transported by them until all tariff rates and charges have been paid except as provided in the regulations in Ex Parte No MC-1 This prescribes payment by the shipper within seven day of the presentation of the freight bill or if billed in advance within seven days after delivery of the freight INVESTIGATION HELD Mr Sherier stated that a recent investigation of carriers records conducted in this area indicated that carriers in some instances are extending credit to shippers beyond the limits of the regulations and Harry Rubey district director of the bureau concurred in this allegation Mr Rubey asserted that the failure of carriers to remit COD collections promptly to the shippers in accordance with the tariff regulations and the failure to pay the freight charges to the carriers within the prescribed time were violations which appeared to go hand in hand Carriers and shippers indulging in such practices were subjecting themselves to prosecution and the penalties prescribed in the act he stated In discussing the rare and regu lations of the commission the officials of the local bureau warned that the extension of credit to favored shippers in excess of that permitted by the regulations may constitute tne offense of offering and granting concessions on the part of the carrier and the offense of receiving concessions on the part of the shipper Shippers who habitually delay payment beyond the allowable time and those who refuse or neglect to pay overdue accounts must be placed on a cash basis until such time as the carriers have satisfied themselves that further credit will not be abused they explained The presence on books of unpaid accounts of long standing unless they take the necessary legal steps to force collection would be deemed sufficient to institute proceedings against the carriers It being their duty to collect the full tariff rate in the required time al lotted The fact that the consignor 0 i consignee had filed with the carrier a claim for damages to the property transported or other shipments is no excuse for the postponement of the collection of the lawfully established charges for the transportation of the property the officials emphasized Claims for damages and collection of established charges for transportation are separate and distinct items and carriers are not relieved from their duty of collection because such claims are filed they concluded I These rulings were brought to1 the attention of truckers in this1 area at a meeting of common car-i riers of
