As to through transportation, the Carrier undertakes to procure such services as necessary and shall have the right at its sole discretion to contact any mode of land, sea or air transportation and to arrange participation by other Carriers to accomplish the combined transport from place of receipt to place of delivery. Whenever any stage of the combined transport is accomplished by any land or air Carrier or any other water carrier, each such stage shall be controlled according to any law compulsorily applicable to such stage and according to the contracts, rules and tariffs of each participating Carrier, the same as if such contracts, rules and tariffs were fully set forth herein.

If the Merchant fails to provide such lighters or other craft, Carrier, acting solely as agent for the Merchant, may engage such lighters, or other craft, at the risk and expense of the Goods. Discharge of the Goods into such lighters or other craft shall constitute proper delivery, and any further responsibility of Carrier with respect to the goods shall thereupon terminate.
The Carrier shall have liberty to comply with any order or directions or recommendations in connection with this transport under this contract of carriage given by any Government or Authority or anyone acting or purporting to act on behalf of such Government or Authority, or having, under the terms of the mortgage or insurance on the vessel or other transport, the right to give such orders, directions or recommendations. Discharge or delivery of the Goods in accordance with the said order, directions or recommendations shall be deemed a fulfillment of the contract.

Failing of claim on time will be discharge Carrier from all liability therefor.
Gold, silver, specie, bullion or other valuables, including those named or described in Sec. 4281 of the Revised Statues of the United States, will not be received by the Carrier unless their true character and value are disclosed to the Carrier and a special written agreement therefore has been made in advance, and will not, in any case, be loaded or landed by the Carrier. No such valuables shall be considered received by or delivered to the Carrier until brought aboard the ship by the shipper and put in the actual possession of and a written receipt therefore is given by the Master or other officer in charge.
It is agreed that superficial rust, oxidation or any like condition due to moisture or condensation, is not a condition of damage but is inherent to the nature of the cargo, and acknowledgment of receipt of the Goods in apparent good order and condition is not a representation that such conditions of rust, oxidation and the like did not exist onreceipt.
Nothing in this Bill of Lading shall operate to deprive the Carrier of any statutory protection or exemption from, or limitation of, liability, contained in the laws of the United States, or in the laws of any other country which may be applicable.

CTPAT Statement of Management Support
The Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (“CTPAT“) is a voluntary program in which members of the international trade community partner with US Customs and Border Protection (“CBP“) to strengthen international supply chain security and improve US border security. CTPAT participants must establish and maintain security processes to protect their supply chains from terrorist infiltration and other illegal activities that threaten US security. In doing so, CTPAT members take an active role in working with the US government to combat terrorism and other criminal activities.
FNS, Inc. (“Company“) has been a certified participant in the CTPAT program since October 22, 2007. All levels of the Company’s management, including its senior executives, are fully committed to the CTPAT program and ensuring the integrity of the Company’s international supply chain. It is essential that we protect our supply chain from criminal activities, such as drug trafficking, terrorism, human smuggling, and illegal contraband. This is critical not only for the safety of our employees and contractors and the success of our business, but also the safety of our customers, vendors, visitors to our facilities, and other business partners.
Accordingly, it is the policy of the Company to:
Ensuring supply chain security requires the vigilance and cooperation of all departments within our Company. Every officer, director, employee, contractor, and agent of the Company must comply with both the CTPAT MSC, as it applies to their role within the Company, and the Company’s Supply Chain Security Policy at all times. We all must play a part in securing our supply chain and preventing it from being compromised by terrorist organizations and other criminal activities.
