Important Notice to Acme Customers
PO’s must include an onsite contact
name and phone number for trucker contact. We are trying to avoid potential
surcharges related to insufficient contact info for the driver.
All Acme products are sold F.O.B. Shipping Point and the attached memorandum copy of Bill of Lading indicates that material
shipped has now, by Federal Law, become Your
Property and is an acknowledgement by the Transportation Company of the
receipt of the material in good condition.
Safe Delivery of this shipment is now the Responsibility of the Carrier who acts
as Your Agent. We will be glad to render assistance to trace

Examine shipment carefully before signing freight bill. If there is any Damage, or if the Number of
Pieces received Does Not agree
with the Bill of Lading, insist that shortage or damage be noted on the freight
bill by the carrier’s agent. Failure to

If a product has significant Damage (beyond field repair), refuse the delivery of that item only and promptly notify
Acme of the refusal.

or Shortage is discovered when

Is and Notify agent of carrier immediately to inspect and make
reference thereto on the freight bill. Consult Carrier for Disposition of Damaged Articles.

therefrom must not be deducted from the invoice, nor payment of invoices
