These Terms and Conditions Agreement (the “Agreement”) describes the terms and conditions by which “Truxweb Inc.” offers to you, as a Carrier and/or as a Shipper (“you”), access to its website www.truxweb.com and the associated mobile software application platform owned and operated by Truxweb (individually and collectively referred to as the “Platform”).
By signing up and registering with Truxweb or by accessing or using the Service, you are accepting this Agreement, on behalf of yourself or the company, entity or organization that you represent, and you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement, on behalf of yourself or the company, entity or organization that you represent. You may not access or use the Platform, or accept this Agreement, if you are not at least 18 years old. Please read this Agreement carefully before using the Truxweb’s Service (as this term is defined below). Use of the Service is conditioned on your agreement to all of the terms and conditions contained in the Agreement, including the policies and terms linked to or otherwise referenced in the Agreement, all of which are hereby incorporated into the Agreement.
IF YOU DO NOT SO AGREE, YOU SHOULD DECLINE THIS AGREEMENT, IN WHICH CASE YOU ARE PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING OR USING THE PLATFORM AND SERVICE.
Truxweb provides an online and mobile Platform to connect Shippers with Carriers for the transportation of cargo, whereby Shippers can submit a request for the transportation of cargo to various Carriers. The Service includes access to all applications, content and downloads offered by Truxweb (in accordance with the chosen subscription option), including the Platform, and associated User Content. Truxweb assesses the legality and regulatory compliance of all Carriers through a vetted third-party compliance check, as well as assessing certain aspects of the legality and regulatory of Shippers during the onboarding process. Truxweb does not take possession, custody or control of any cargo, does not provide actual transportation services or act in any way as a Carrier.
The Service expressly excludes the transportation of passengers.
Once a duly completed Shipment request is made from a Shipper of the Platform, the Shipper will automatically be offered the selection of Carriers that provide the service of delivery according to the individual Shipment details and specific requirements entered by the Shipper. The Shipper will then select the Carrier of its choice. After the Carrier is chosen by the Shipper and assigned to perform transportation services related to the Shipment, it will be provided with the list of Shipments to deliver according to the Shipment details and requirements. Truxweb will then notify the Shipper, through the Platform, that the Shipment has been accepted, and the Shipper will pay the shipping fees based on agreed commercial term. Shippers will then have access in near real-time to transportation information, including the Shipment tracking, where available.
The bill of lading shall not name Truxweb as either a Shipper or consignee of the Shipment. Truxweb is not responsible for any Shipment terms entered into between Carrier and Shipper.
Unless otherwise agreed, freight charges stated in the Platform and agreed to by the selection of Carrier for the Shipments hereunder include the transportation of the cargo from origin to destination, cost of tolls, ferry or other expenses related to the transportation including fuel surcharge.
Carriers are required to do the maintenance of all equipment including additional services or equipment contemplated in the load tender (including, but not limited to amounts for refrigerated trailers, lift-gate service, loading or unloading, etc.). If any additional services not contemplated at the time a shipment is scheduled, Carrier will use all necessary measure to contact Truxweb to provide notice of all unspecified ancillary service or costs incurred so that Truxweb may attempt to obtain Shipper approval of such charges. Absent express prior agreement, Truxweb does not guarantee that invoices for additional and/or ancillary services will be paid.
Once a Shipment has been completed, Carrier will provide Truxweb and the Shipper a proof of delivery signed by the authorized recipient within an acceptable time delay, 24 hours thereafter the completion of the Shipment. Proof of delivery will be submitted to Truxweb’s Platform and made accessible through the Shipper dashboard.

If Carrier breaches this provision, without limiting any other right of Truxweb or the Shipper (including the prohibition to further use the Platform), Carrier shall remain fully liable pursuant to this Agreement as if it had transported the Shipment on vehicles operating under its for-hire motor carrier authority (including liability for cargo loss and damage claims and including the duty to defend, indemnify and hold harmless against the acts and omissions of Carrier and its contractors).
You, as a Carrier, acknowledge and agree that if any third party makes a claim against Truxweb or the Shipper with respect to Shipments tendered to Carrier for transportation hereunder, Truxweb may pay such third party directly and shall have no duty to pay Carrier with respect to any such Shipment. Truxweb shall have the right to offset the amount of payment to such third party against any funds due and owing to Truxweb due to Carrier’s breach of this provision.

You shall defend, indemnify and hold Truxweb and Shippers harmless from and against any and all fines, penalties, judgments, liabilities, expenses and costs of any nature resulting from your failure to comply with all such laws, rules, regulations and ordinances.
By using the Services, you represent and warrant that (i) your current safety rating issued by FMCSA is not “Unsatisfactory,” and (ii) you are not otherwise subject to an out-of-service order or otherwise prohibited from providing service in accordance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. In the event you are issued a safety rating of less than “Satisfactory” at any time during the term of this Agreement, you shall notify Truxweb immediately in the manner prescribed in the Notices provision contained hereinbelow. Truxweb shall have the right to terminate this Agreement immediately should Carrier fail to comply with these obligations.
You, as a Carrier, acknowledge that it is authorized to provide transportation of any Shipments requested or obtained through the Service as a for-hire motor carrier in accordance with any and all applicable federal, provinces and regional laws, rules and regulations.

You shall defend, indemnify and hold Truxweb and Shippers harmless from and against any and all fines, penalties, judgments, liabilities, expenses and costs of any nature resulting from your failure to comply with all such laws, rules, regulations and ordinances.
You warrant that you shall perform all transportation services pursuant to this Agreement with equipment that is regularly maintained and is in good order, condition and repair and that meets with all applicable federal and state laws, rules and regulations. Carrier must furnish equipment for transporting cargo, which is clean, dry, leak proof, free from harmful or offensive odor, sanitary, and free of any contamination, suitable for the particular Shipment being transported and which will not cause in whole or in part adulteration of the Shipment.
Unless a trailer is pre-loaded and sealed prior to Carrier’s arrival at destination, and the applicable bill of lading bears a “shipper load and count”, “SLC” or similar designation, Carrier is solely responsible to ensure that all equipment has been properly loaded, secured, blocked and braced. You acknowledge that Truxweb will never be in possession of any cargo being transported in connection with use of the Service, and that Truxweb will not be responsible or have any role in the securement of cargo for transportation.
You acknowledge that the Platform is intended to facilitate the transportation of Shipment and to enable you to obtain new shipment requests from Shippers that you may not have had access to but for the Platform and the Service offered by Truxweb.
You also acknowledge that the business opportunities resulting from your use of the Platform are significant and you understand that appropriating such business opportunities obtained through your use of the Service could cause significant commercial harm to Truxweb.
Therefore, for the duration of your use of the Service, and for a period of one (1) year from your last use, you shall not directly or indirectly offer to ship Shipment to a Shipper without using the Service, accept a shipment request directly or indirectly from a Shipper without using the Platform if (i) the Shipper is one with whom you first did business via the Platform, and (ii) the Shipper's shipment request is for a route previously completed with that same Shipper via the Platform (in this section, the "Non-Solicitation Obligations").
In the event that you fail to comply with your Non-Solicitation Obligations, you shall be jointly and severally liable with Shipper to Truxweb for each event of non-compliance with your Non-Solicitation Obligations, and you hereby agree to pay to Truxweb as compensation an amount equal to twenty percent (20%) of all revenues paid by Shipper to Carrier (before taxes). Truxweb may also deny you further access to the Platform.
A Carrier can cancel a booked shipment, provided its cancellation is done twenty-four (24) hours in advance of the pick-up date. If a Carrier makes the cancelation of a booked Shipment inside the twenty-four (24) hour window, the Carrier will be charged an additional administrative fee of up to CAD 250$, unless the Shipment falls under extraordinary circumstances which will be determined by Truxweb on a case-by-case basis, to which the cancellation penalty can be waived.
You shall not insert “Truxweb” or “Truxweb Inc.” on any receipt, bill of lading, manifest, or other shipping document. In the event you do so, such insertion shall be deemed to be for your convenience, or due to your oversight, and shall not operate to alter Truxweb’s status as a platform provider, or the Carrier’s status as the responsible Carrier. The provisions set forth in any shipping document maintained by Carrier (including, but not limited to, any bill of lading, proof of delivery, motor carrier tariff, rate confirmation sheet or other documentation) shall not apply to any transportation performed pursuant to Compliance with Instructions (as set forth below).
You, as a Carrier, shall comply with any and all instructions regarding the handling of the Shipment which are communicated to Carrier by Shipper or Truxweb, whether pursuant to the Service, on the applicable bill of lading, or via other documentation provided to the Carrier. In addition, Carrier shall, and shall cause its drivers, to comply with facility rules in effect at any locations where Carrier is performing pick-up or delivery services.
As a Shipper who accesses or uses the Service, you are an independent contractor and remain solely responsible for entering the appropriate and correct information relating to your Shipment, selecting a Carrier and paying the associated shipping fees.
You are solely responsible for your own actions, omissions, oversight, compliance with regulatory and safety requirements, and all management of your Shipment, employees, contractors, agents and subcontractors. You are solely responsible for the acts and omissions of any of the Shipper’s employees, agents, contractors, and subcontractors used in the performance of transportation of Shipments.
Upon the registration with the Service, a Shipper must provide Truxweb with: (i) Shipper’s business address and contact information; (ii) a list of credit reference if Shipper wants to pay by any other means than credit cards; (iii) a commercial invoice and bill of lading for individual shipment (when required); and (iv) any supplemental information required from time to time.
Once a Shipper is onboarded onto the Truxweb Service, the Shipper is required to input all relevant information of a shipment accurately. Shipper is required to comply with all federal, provincial and states transportation rules and regulations. The Shipper must include all required documents upon request to ship hazardous materials.
Truxweb will not be held accountable for input errors, additional cost or surcharge leading from inaccurate measurements and inaccurate input will not cause Truxweb to be held accountable. Carrier will notify Truxweb of any additional costs or surcharges along with the corresponding proof or justification, at the time the Carrier submits the proof of delivery. Truxweb will relay the information and charge the Shipper additional costs.
Truxweb is not responsible in any way for the acts and the selections of Carriers on the Platform. The Service provides Shippers with the Carrier’s pricing and a rating and review system based on previous Users’ experience based on specific criteria.
Truxweb makes the review and rating available to Shippers without any expression of Truxweb opinion or make any assurances regarding the truth or accuracy of any Shipper reviews or ratings. Truxweb will not remove reviews or ratings, or any portion thereof, unless they contain content Truxweb deem inappropriate at its sole discretion. Truxweb will monitor reviews and ratings to ensure quality shipment services are provided by our Carriers and Shippers.
Shipper can cancel a booked shipment, provided its cancellation is done twenty-four (24) hours in advance of the pick-up date. If a Shipper make the cancelation of a booked Shipment within the twenty-four (24) hour window, the Shipper will be charged up to the full amount of the Shipment plus an additional administrative fee of up to CAD 250$, unless the Shipment falls under extraordinary circumstances which will be determined by Truxweb on a case-by-case basis, to which the cancellation penalty can be waived.
You acknowledge that the Platform is intended to facilitate the transportation of Shipment and to allow you to obtain news of shipments from Carriers that you may not have had access to but for the Platform and the Service offered by Truxweb.
You also acknowledge that business opportunities arising from your use of the Platform are important and you understand that appropriating such business opportunities obtained through your use of the Service could cause significant commercial harm to Truxweb.
Therefore, for the duration of your use of the Service, and for a period of one (1) year from your last use, you shall not directly or indirectly offer to a Carrier to ship your Shipment without using the Service, nor accept an offer to ship directly or indirectly made by a Carrier without using the Platform if (i) it is a Carrier with whom you first did business via the Platform, and (ii) the offer or request to ship is for a route previously completed with that same Carrier via the Platform (in this Section 5. 6, the "Non-Solicitation Obligations").
In the event that you fail to comply with your Non-Solicitation Obligations, you shall be jointly and severally liable with Shipper to Truxweb for each event of non-compliance with your Non-Solicitation Obligations, and you hereby agree to pay to Truxweb as compensation an amount equal to twenty percent (20%) of all revenues paid to Carrier (before taxes). Truxweb may also deny you further access to the Platform.
For each Shipment, Shipper will pay Truxweb the freight charge quoted to the Shipper on the Service, as well as additional amounts, if any, to be paid by the Shipper for additional services provided by Carrier or Truxweb with respect to a Shipment. Truxweb will pay Carriers the agreed upon negotiated route fee or price per mile, plus applicable additional charges and fees for quoted Shipment, as the case may be.
Truxweb will pay Carrier the quoted amount as well as aforementioned additional amounts (if applicable) directly into its bank account, less Truxweb’s Service fees.
Unless otherwise stated on the Platform, Truxweb will not be responsible for the collection and/or payment of all taxes, which you may be liable for in any jurisdiction from your use of the Service. Truxweb is not responsible for collecting, reporting, paying, or remitting to you any such taxes.
Truxweb shall pay freight charges to Carrier at the quoted price presented to Shippers on the Service (less Truxweb’s Service fees) regardless of whether Shippers pay Truxweb within the generic 30 days term, with the exception of delivery of damaged goods, late deliveries, other restriction may apply.
The Carrier shall under no circumstance invoice or otherwise attempt to collect any amounts related to services provided with respect to any Shipment directly from any Shipper or any third-party. The Carrier shall look exclusively to Truxweb for payment of freight charges hereunder. The Carrier hereby waives any right it may otherwise have to proceed or commence any action against any Shipper for the collection of any freight bills arising out of transportation services hereunder.
Shippers are expected to pay any outstanding amount within 30 days of the proof of delivery. After 30 days, Shippers with no extended credit terms will be charge late penalty fees ($100) and interest of 20% annually. In order to extend credit terms, Shippers can contact their customer success agent to link Shipper with a Truxweb accounting and customer success agent for approval (restriction applies).
Truxweb may, in its sole discretion, offer to Carrier an early payout service (“EP”) upon request (restriction applies). The early payout, if any, will be quoted separately from the Carrier quote available to Shippers on the Service. The EP will be provided 24h after proof of delivery is uploaded to the Service. In order to qualify for EP, Carriers must (i) comply with any applicable laws, rules and regulations at all time while performing the delivery of the shipment (including compliant with speed limits and hours of service regulation); (ii) Carrier must deliver the shipment at the appointed time (if any); (iii) Carrier must provide proof of delivery within 24h to the Service which states the shipment was delivered without damages, loss, or shortages; (iv) prior to the payment, Truxweb must not have received any complaints or claims from the Shipper or receiver regarding Carrier services with the shipment in question. If subsequent claims or failure to abide to applicable law in the performance of the delivery related to EP shipment, Truxweb will require Carriers to refund the EP until the issue at hand related to the shipment is settled.
Truxweb reserves the right to offset the amount of such EP, should there be any outstanding balance owed to Truxweb by the Carrier. Truxweb reserves the rights to remove EP to Carriers at its sole discretion.
All charges are facilitated through a third-party payment processing service. Truxweb may replace its third-party payment processing services without notice. In the case of a transition of third-party payment provider, Truxweb will grant Shipper an additional three (3) days allowance to emit outstanding payment due to the transitioning process.
