In tendering the shipment, Shipper agrees to the terms and conditions of this contract and those terms and conditions set forth in the most recent Pakair Standard Trading Conditions, each of which will be deemed to be incorporated in and to be a condition of any agreement whether written, oral or implied, between Pakair and Shipper. Pakair’s Standard Trading Conditions are available for inspections at any Pakair office and are hereby expressly incorporated by the reference.

The Shipper hereby undertakes to indemnify Pakair against any damages, costs and expenses resulting from any breach of this warranty.
