PCS liability shall be subject to the limits of the relevant transportation service at set forth in  this Section 16.  

(b) Subject to Section 16(a), and the liability limits below, PCS shall only be liable for loss or  damage to Items caused by PCS’ failure to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances  and only occurring while such Items are in the physical care, custody and control of PCS or its  agents or subcontractors. PCS shall have no liability for concealed loss or damage to Items  not apparent upon a visible inspection of the exterior of Items, and not accompanied by  evidence of external damage or tampering, or the loss or damage to Items resulting from: the  inherent vice of such Items; an error, omission, or fault (including failure to disclose  information about Items) of Customer or its contractors, agents, vendors or customers; or a  Force Majeure Event.  

(c) In the event of a claim for Item(s) lost or damaged for which PCS is liable, the measure of  damages, except as may be limited by applicable law, shall be the lesser of (i) the actual cost,  including transportation costs, for repair, replacing or reproducing the Item(s) lost or  damaged; (ii) the fair market value of the item(s) damaged on the date of the Item loss or  damage; (iii) $0.60 per pound of the Item(s) lost or damaged, or part thereof.

Customer’s failure to purchase Additional Valuation as described is an  acceptance of PCS’ maximum limit of liability of $0.60 per pound. When purchased, an  Additional Valuation premium shall be reflected charged on the Customer’s invoice.  

(e) Absent a request for a quotation for insurance of Items, an agreement to purchase such  insurance as documented in a signed SOW, and payment of insurance premiums, PCS does  not insure Customer’s Items. Customer may purchase insurance through PCS’ Shippers  Interest Cargo Insurance (“First Party Insurance”) for amounts of coverage above PCS’  maximum limit of liability for loss or damage to Items or for more than the Additional  Valuation. In the event such First Party Insurance is purchased, Customer will make claims  for loss or damage to Items only against such First Party Insurance policy and not against PCS,  and shall defend indemnify and hold harmless PCS from and against any claims by Customer’s  insurers against PCS. First Party Insurance is between the insurance company and Customer  and PCS is not a party of any such agreement. PCS has no responsibility or liability with respect  to the issuance or denial of First Party Insurance, or in the payment or denial of claims.  

(f) Customer acknowledges and agrees that any transit times referred to in this Agreement or  elsewhere are estimates only and do not constitute a delivery time guarantee. PCS shall not  be responsible for any delays and is only responsible for delivery of the Items within a  reasonable time.  

(g) For customs brokerage Services carried out by PCS in the name and on behalf of Customer,  PCS shall not be liable for any loss or liability unless such loss or liability resulted from the  failure by PCS to exercise such care in regard to performing the services as a reasonably 

careful customs broker would exercise under like circumstances. PCS’ liability for proven fault,  if any, for any claim arising from customs business services shall be limited to the amount of  brokerage fees paid by Customer to PCS for the customs entry giving rise to the claim.  

(h) Unless subject to a specific statute or international convention, all claims against PCS arising  out of or in any way related to this Agreement must be made in writing and received by PCS  within thirty days of the event giving rise to claim. Failure to give PCS timely notice shall be a  complete defense to any suit or action commenced by Customer.  

  1. Limitation of Actions. Except for actions for breach of confidentiality and non-payment of  amounts owed hereunder, no action, regardless of form, arising out of this Agreement may be  brought by either Party more than one (1) year after the cause of action has occurred.
