compensation for the first pick-up or the final delivery.
9) Drivers will be compensated for the out of route miles to stop at client agency warehouses as

unloaded at the agency and it otherwise meets the criteria for an extra stop.

for each set of weight tickets obtained and turned in. If you get weight tickets free at an agent, we still
give you the $30 for them.

We will adjust your trip in the system to reflect actuals & invoice the customer by that Weds.
