Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the customer shall deliver the goods onto the vehicle
nominated by Whelson and will take deliver therefrom. Whelson will not be responsible
for any loss or damage arising from the loading or off-loading of the vehicles and the
customer indemnifies Whelson against any claims which may be brought against Whelson
arising out of the loading, off-loading, overloading, unsafe loading of the vehicles,
and/or arising out of any defect in the goods.
Nothing herein contained shall be construed as preventing Whelson from giving
assistance in loading or off-loading the goods onto or from the vehicle where such
assistance is customary and practicable, but assistance so given shall be without
any liability on Whelson’s part and shall be at the sole risk of the customer who
shall indemnify Whelson accordingly.
In the event of any unnecessary delays howsoever caused, whether as a result of
loading or off-loading or otherwise, Whelson reserves the right to charge demurrage
per hour, calculated on the capacity of the vehicle in question.
