TERMS OF AGREEMENT
By activating and using the UPXPRESS service, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to accept the Terms and Conditions of this agreement. You agree that your shipments may be carried through intermediate stopping places including a country other than the country of departure and that UPXpress may substitute alternate carriers or aircraft and may without notice and with due regard to your interests, substitute other means of transportation.

FOREIGN SHIPPING ADDRESSES
You will be provided with an official physical street address for your exclusive use. The rights to the physical street address belong to us.
Access to the foreign addresses is restricted solely to our personnel. You are only permitted to have packages sent to the shipping addresses and to have the shipments on-forwarded to destination.

DELIVERY
You may choose to have packages delivered to your business or home address. We will make three (3) attempts to deliver your packages between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If no one is present to receive your packages, a note will be left to advise you of a failed delivery attempt. Your packages will then be brought back to our facility where you may make arrangements to have the packages collected.

PROHIBITED ARTICLES
You agree to use the UPXPRESS service only for lawful purposes and conform to all federal, state, local government and postal regulations in the U.S and in Trinidad. You further agree that you shall not use, nor permit the shipping address to be used to send, deliver, receive, or store items of unusual intrinsic value such as cash, negotiable securities, jewelry, furs or the like,Seditious and obscene publications or any type of mail and magazines.

HAZARDOUS MATERIAL OR DANGEROUS GOODS
Any packages or goods, which are considered by the Department of Transportation (DOT), the International Air Transportation Association (IATA), and/or the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as "restricted articles", "hazardous material", or "dangerous goods", will be sent into Trinidad via airfreight as cargo. The cost associated with this will be handled on an individual basis and is not based on the rates mentioned on this site.The cost associated with this will be handled on an individual basis and is not based on the standard tariff. This is primarily due to the cost associated with the special handling, packaging and paperwork required to handle hazardous material or dangerous goods.

LIABILITIES NOT ASSUMED
The responsibility of UP Xpress begins when the packages are received at the warehouse of its agent in Miami. UP Xpress will not be held liable for packages that are lost, delayed or damaged while in transit to the warehouse.
We are not liable for delays in delivery, damages of any kind (whether direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential) including but not limited to loss of income, loss of interest, loss of profit, loss of business opportunity, loss of use of contents, breach of other contracts, or any loss or damage arising from the inherent nature of the goods, whether or not we had knowledge that such damage might be incurred, even if the delay is our fault in retrieving the shipment, transporting the shipment, or delivering the shipment. We will not be liable for your acts or omissions, including but not limited to incorrect declaration of goods, improper or insufficient packaging or marking or addressing of the shipment, or for acts or omissions by the consignor or consignee or anyone else with an interest in the shipment.

The customer shall be responsible for ensuring that an invoice accompanies every shipment. Failure to do so may result in delays and abandonment of shipments. Where shipments arrive without proper documentation UP Xpress will ship the goods into Trinidad and notify the consignee in Trinidad. UP Xpress will provide the customers with a delivery notification and a copy of the air way bill to be presented for clearance. This will end UP Xpress' responsibility for the goods and payment will become applicable immediately. The customer may choose to have the supplier produce a duplicate invoice and have it sent to Trinidad or may present evidence of value to customs for clearance. All necessary storage will be for the consignee's account pending an invoice being produced for clearance.

Also, we will not be liable if you or the consignor violates any of the terms of the agreement. We do not accept for shipment cash, currency, or other security instruments.

Also, we will not be held liable for loss, damage, or delay caused by any events we cannot control, including but not limited to acts of God, "force majeure", or the action or omissions of any governmental or public authority (including but not limited to customs or health officials), or omission by anyone outside of us. We reserve the right, without admitting liability, to refund transportation charges at our sole discretion, but are not obligated to do so.

LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITIES
In consideration of the international transportation charges for the movement of packages by UPXPRESS, it is agreed that the maximum liability on each shipment will be $50.00 U.S. Additional insurance coverage is available upon request for an additional fee. All requests must be made in writing and arranged and paid for in advance.

RIGHT TO INSPECT

You will also be responsible for any costs we may incur in returning the shipment to you, the consignor, or warehousing it pending disposition. We are not obligated to advance any customs, government, or carrier's fees or assessments, penalties, fines, or any other accessorial clearance fees, and may at our sole discretion request certified funds or cash from you before submitting an entry for clearance to Customs. We have the right to suspend service should your account not be in good standing, until the amount due is paid in full, and you expressly acknowledge and agree with this right.
