Freight charges resulting from freight collect shipments will be billed to the customer by the freight carrier. The customer is responsible for all charges resulting from freight collect shipments.
Free freight orders are shipped on a carrier chosen by AEC and a request by the customer to ship on a specific carrier will incur any additional freight charges to the order should the specified carrier have a higher cost than AEC’s chosen carrier. Free freight is designated to one location and will not be applied to shipments made to multiple locations. If AEC is requested to ship and backorder on a shipment that meets the free freight bogeys above, but the backorder total does not reflect the above then freight will be charged on the back order shipment.
