A cancellation fee will be assessed if a cancellation occurs after the package has been accepted but before the shipment occurs. The fee also applies if cancellation results from a pickup exception in which no packages were picked up and the pickup is not rescheduled. Packages refused by the Consignee, or which are undeliverable for any reason, will be returned to the Shipper at Shipper’s expense, including, but not limited to, forwarding costs, return transportation charges, and all other applicable Charges, duties, and taxes. Such Charges will be calculated as a newly-initiated Shipment between the original delivery address and the return address, and will include (but not be limited to) all applicable surcharges. All original Charges will continue to apply as if the package were delivered to the original delivery address. Undeliverable international Shipments returned to the Shipper also are subject to an undeliverable Shipment surcharge set forth in the effective dotBleu Rates.
dotBleu reserves the right to dispose of packages as it deems fit, after retention of the Shipment for a reasonable period of time as determined, not to exceed 30 days, if the package is refused by the Consignee or for any other reason cannot be delivered, and the return of the Package is refused by The shipper or the Package cannot otherwise be returned to the Shipper for any reason. dotBleu’s right to dispose of a package includes, but is not limited to, situations where dotBleu determines in its sole and unlimited discretion that it is unsafe or economically or operationally impracticable to provide delivery or return service. The Shipper or Consignee’s sole recourse in such circumstances shall be in accordance with and subject to settling via arbitration.
