If you fail to provide or correctly enter this information, you will be billed and agree to pay based on our estimate of the number of packages transported and either the dimensional weight at the time of billing or a standard default weight-per-package estimate, both of which will be determined by us at our sole discretion.
For USMEX EXPRESS services the recipient's postal code is critical to correct invoicing (to those countries that are in multiple rate scales). Any omission or incorrect entry will result in additional billing based on corrected postal code.

As used in the USMEX EXPRESS terms and conditions, "Warsaw Convention" or "Convention" means the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules relating to International Carriage by Air, signed at Warsaw, Oct. 12, 1929, or that convention as amended, including the Montreal Protocol No. 4 and the Montreal Convention, whichever is applicable to the carriage or "carrier," including the air carrier issuing the air waybill and all air carriers that carry the goods or perform any other services related to the carriage.
2. When the carriage involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of departure, the Warsaw Convention may be applicable. The convention governs and, in most cases, limits our liability for loss of, damage to or delay of cargo.
3. The Warsaw Convention limits our liability for loss or delay of or damage to your shipment. The interpretation of the Warsaw Convention's liability limits may vary depending on the destination country.

You agree USMEX EXPRESS may, without notice, substitute alternative carrier or aircraft, deviate from the route or routes, or cause the goods to be transported by motor vehicle.
THERE ARE NO STOPPING PLACES THAT ARE AGREED TO AT THE TIME OF TENDER OF THE SHIPMENT, AND WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ROUTE THE SHIPMENT IN ANY WAY WE DEEM APPROPRIATE.

We must receive notice of all other claims, including, but not limited to, claims for nondelivery or misdelivery, within 3 calendar days after package was tendered to USMEX EXPRESS OR ITS THIRD PARTY SHIPPING PARTNER for shipment. If your package gets damaged during shipping, you can file a claim directly by the carrier that you have shipped with or we can file it for you. All claims must be approved and reimbursed to us by the Carrier who we have contracted with before we can reimburse you. Since we are the third party shipping company, the final decision on the claims rests with the carrier.
2. Notice of all claims must be in writing. All claims must be made within the time limits set forth above.
3. Your notice of claim must include complete shipper and recipient information, as well as the air waybill or tracking number, date of shipment, number of pieces, and shipment weight. Failure to provide us with notice in the manner and within the time limits set forth above will result in denial of your claim, and we will have no liability or obligation to pay your claim. The filing of a lawsuit does not constitute compliance with these notice provisions.
4. Written documentation supporting the amount of your claim must be delivered to us within 3 days after package was tendered to USMEX EXPRESS or its Carrier of choice for shipment. Such documentation may include original purchase invoices, estimates or invoices for repair, expense statements, appraisals, or other records. These documents must be verifiable to our satisfaction.

6. USMEX EXPRESS reserves the right to inspect a damaged shipment on the recipient's premises as well as the right to retrieve the damaged package for inspection.. The terms and conditions applicable to the original shipment (including any declared value) will govern the disposition of all claims in connection with the shipment, including any claim relative to the retrieval, inspection or return of the package. When a package is picked up for inspection, a receipt for the damaged package will be provided if requested by the recipient. All of the original shipping cartons, packing and contents must be made available for our inspection and retained until the claim is concluded. USMEX EXPRESS or its carrier might also use other agents or companies for pick up and inspection of the damaged packages.

EVEN IF A HIGHER VALUE IS INSURED, OUR LIABILITY FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR DELAY OF A SHIPMENT WILL NOT EXCEED ITS REPAIR COSTS, ITS DEPRECIATED VALUE OR ITS REPLACEMENT COST, WHICHEVER IS LESS.

Collect on Delivery (C.O.D.) Service - We offer C.O.D. service to international destinations. The receiver shall pay the appropriate assessed duties and taxes, set by customs in the country being shipped to. Receiver must pay these taxes before the package/shipment is released.
1. All shipments that cross international borders must be cleared through customs in the destination country prior to delivery to the recipient.
2. We (or a broker selected by us) will submit shipments to customs and other regulatory agencies for clearance. Duties and taxes will be advanced on behalf of the sender and recipient provided appropriate credit arrangements have been made in advance. (See the Billing and Duties and Taxes sections.) Where USMEX EXPRESS (or the broker selected by USMEX EXPRESS) incurs additional time or expense clearing an import shipment due to the commodities being imported or special brokerage processing, USMEX EXPRESS reserves the right to impose a fee ("ancillary fee") in order to recover those costs to USMEX EXPRESS that may be caused by regulatory agency declarations and processing, or by the customs broker chosen to clear the shipment. These may include, without limitation, ancillary fees associated with the filing of entries within destination countries, such as with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, live entries and entries pursuant to U.S. Department of Defense contracts (or comparable agencies in the destination country), and for other special brokerage processing.
3. When shipments are held by customs or other agencies due to incorrect or missing documentation, we may attempt first to notify the recipient. If local law requires the correct information or documentation to be submitted by the recipient and the recipient fails to do so within a reasonable time as we may determine, the shipment may be considered undeliverable. (See the Undeliverable Shipments section.) If the recipient fails to supply the required information or documentation, and local law allows the sender to provide the same, we may attempt to notify the sender. If the sender also fails to provide the information or documentation within a reasonable time as we may determine, the shipment will be considered undeliverable. We assume no responsibility for our inability to complete a delivery due to incorrect or missing documentation, whether or not we attempt to notify the recipient or sender. (See the Undeliverable Shipments section.)
4. Shipments requiring documentation in addition to the USMEX EXPRESS International Air Waybill (e.g., a Commercial Invoice) may require additional transit time. Proper completion of necessary documentation, with complete and accurate shipment information, including the appropriate Harmonized Tariff Schedule Code, is the shipper's responsibility.
5. Shipments that contain goods or products that are regulated by multiple government agencies within the destination country (such as the Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Communications Commission in the U.S. and comparable agencies in the destination country) may require additional time for clearance.
6. The sender is responsible for making sure goods shipped internationally are acceptable for entry into the destination country. All charges for shipment to and return from countries where entry is not permitted are the sender's responsibility.
7. We assume no responsibility for shipments abandoned in customs, and such shipments may be considered undeliverable.
Dangerous Goods - We do not accept dangerous-goods shipments. Any package given to us or our agents containing dangerous goods will be returned to the shipper at their expense. USMEX EXPRESS is not required to add dry ice to packages in its system or to provide re-icing services or any other type of packaging. (No Exceptions)
Limits of Liability (Not Insurance Coverage) - Our maximum liability for damages and loss is $100.00 per package for a maximum amount of $1,000.00 per shipment. You may purchase extra insurance for your shipment.
Insurance - We offer $100.00 of insurance free of charge. You can purchase extra insurance for your shipments up to $1,000 coverage at a 5% rate. The insurance amount can not be more than the value declared on your commercial invoice. To be covered under our $100.00 free insurance, the value declared on your commercial invoice must be greater than $100.00 as well.
Dimensional Weight (Volumetric Weight) - Transportation charges may be assessed based on the International Air Transport Association (IATA) volumetric standard. Dimensional-weight pricing is applicable on a per-shipment basis to all shipments in customer packaging. USMEX EXPRESS packaging may also be subject to dimensional-weight pricing.
Dimensional weight is calculated by multiplying length by width by height of each package (all in inches) and dividing by 166 (divide by 194 for shipments to Puerto Rico). If the dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight, charges based on the dimensional weight will be assessed.
WE INSPECT ALL INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES. CUSTOMERS WHO FAIL TO ENTER THE CORRECT DIMENSIONS OR THE WEIGHT OF THE PACKAGES WILL CAUSE THEIR SHIPMENTS TO BE DELAYED AND THEIR CHARGES WILL BE ADJUSTED.
Duties and Taxes
1. In order to complete clearance of certain items through customs, we may be required to advance on your behalf certain duties and taxes as assessed by customs officials. For all shipments we may contact the payer before clearance is complete to confirm the arrangements for reimbursing us. At our sole discretion, we may require confirmation of reimbursement arrangements as a condition to completion of clearance and delivery including, but not limited to, cases of deliveries to recipients that we believe are not creditworthy and of shipments with high declared values.
2. Duties and taxes are billed to the recipient. If you choose C.O.D., the receiver is then responsible to pay for the duties and taxes before the package is released. REGARDLESS OF ANY PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS TO THE CONTRARY, THE SENDER IS ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF DUTIES AND TAXES IF PAYMENT IS NOT RECEIVED. If a shipment is returned to the shipper due to duties and taxes not being paid, the shipper is responsible for the return shipping fees.
3. In the event we advance duties, taxes or other fees, including the U.S. Merchandise Processing Fee, on behalf of the payer, the payer will be assessed a surcharge based on a flat rate or a percentage of the total amount advanced. This surcharge will vary depending upon the destination country. For U.S. import shipments, the surcharge is either 3 percent of the total amount advanced or US$7, whichever is greater.
4. If a recipient refuses to pay the duties and taxes, we may contact the sender. If the sender refuses to make satisfactory arrangements to reimburse us, the shipment may be returned to the sender or placed into a general order warehouse or a customs-bonded warehouse. The sender must then pay both the original transportation charges and the return charges. If we advanced any amounts as duties and taxes at either the original destination or upon return, the sender shall also be liable for such amounts.
5. Payment for duties and taxes will be made by one of the following means at the sole discretion of USMEX EXPRESS: cash, money order, traveler's check, bank deposit, or credit card.
6. In the event the accuracy or propriety of duties and taxes assessed on a shipment is disputed, USMEX EXPRESS or its designated broker may review the shipping documents tendered with the shipment. If USMEX EXPRESS determines that the duties and taxes were properly assessed, the shipper agrees to pay the duties and taxes.
Export Control Laws - You are responsible for and warrant your compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including, but not limited to, the export laws and government regulations of any country to, from, through or over which your shipment may be carried. You agree to furnish such information and complete and attach to the air waybill such documents as necessary to comply with such laws, rules and regulations.
In addition, you specifically warrant that you will not tender any shipments to us if you are listed on the Denied Persons List maintained by the U.S. Department of Commerce. You also warrant that you will not attempt to ship to persons or entities listed as Specially Designated Nationals or Blocked Persons by the U.S. Treasury Department. USMEX EXPRESS will not carry shipments that violate any U.S. export laws. We assume no liability to you or any other person for any loss or expense - including, but not limited to, fines and penalties - if you fail to comply with any export laws, rules or regulations.
Extra-Large Packages - Extra-large packages are pieces weighing more than 70 lbs. (or destination country limit) that exceed 130 inches (or destination country limit) in length and girth combined. These pieces may be refused, or at our sole discretion may be considered as International Economy Freight shipments once accepted by us, and a minimum chargeable weight of 151 lbs. may be applied regardless of actual weight.
Fuel Surcharge - Fuel Surcharge is included in our prices. We reserve the right to assess other surcharges on shipments without notice. The duration and amount of any surcharge will be determined at our sole discretion. By tendering your shipment to USMEX EXPRESS, you agree to pay the surcharges, as determined by USMEX EXPRESS.
Inspection of Shipments - We may, at our sole discretion, open and inspect any shipment without notice. Governmental authorities may also open and inspect any shipment at any time.
Liabilities Not Assumed - WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, WHETHER DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL, IN EXCESS OF THE INSURED VALUE OR US$100.00 OR THE AMOUNT SET BY THE WARSAW CONVENTION (AS AMENDED), FOR CARRIAGE OF A SHIPMENT ARISING FROM TRANSPORTATION, WHETHER OR NOT WE KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT SUCH DAMAGES MIGHT BE INCURRED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF INCOME OR PROFITS.
If we inadvertently accept a shipment with a destination city or cities that we do not serve in a country, we may attempt to complete the delivery. However, we will not be liable and we will not provide any proof of delivery. The delivery commitment listed for such country will not apply, and the applicable rate will be the highest for that country plus the maximum extended service area surcharge.
We will not be liable or responsible for loss, damage or delay caused by events we cannot control.
We will not be liable for, nor will any adjustment, refund or credit of any kind be given as a result of any loss, damage, delay, misdelivery, nondelivery, misinformation or any failure to provide information, except such as may result from our sole negligence.

Any right you might have to damages, refunds, credits, recovery of reliance interests, disgorgement, restitution, injunctive relief, declaratory relief or any other legal or equitable relief whatsoever against us under any cause of action arising from the transportation of any package shall be extinguished unless you file an action within 7 days from the date of delivery of the shipment or from the date on which the shipment should have been delivered. Any right that you might have to damages, refunds, credits, recovery of reliance interests, disgorgement, restitution, injunctive relief, declaratory relief or any other legal or equitable relief whatsoever against us under any cause of action arising from the transportation of any package shall be extinguished unless you first comply with all applicable notice periods and requirements in these terms and conditions including, but not limited to, the periods and requirements for providing notice under the Billing, Claims and Policy sections. You and we understand that timely and complete compliance with such notice periods and requirements is a contractual condition precedent to your right to any relief whatsoever, and you must plead compliance with those conditions precedent on the face of any complaint that you file against us. You and we agree that USMEX EXPRESS cannot be considered to have breached any obligation to you unless or until we wrongfully deny a claim submitted to us pursuant to the notice periods and requirements contained in these terms and conditions. Finally, you and we agree that you will comply with applicable notice periods and requirements even if you believe that such compliance will not result in relief from us or if you lack knowledge regarding whether such compliance will result in relief from us.
You agree that you will not sue us as a class plaintiff or class representative, join as a class member, or participate as an adverse party in any way in a class-action lawsuit against us.
