(ii) Each Carrier will be required to submit their truck for weighing at an accredited weighbridge (or alternatively be weighed by the RTA in the plant or at another approved site) on a quarterly basis. The Contractor shall bear the expense of the weighing procedure but the Carrier must comply when directed by the Contractor to undergo weighing. The truck shall be weighed when fully laden with water (i.e. when the Wash Down Tank is full of water).

 

(iii) Each Carrier shall be loaded wherever possible to the maximum legal capacity of the Carrier’s truck (based on the density of the concrete mix at the relevant time) except in the case of a single load or message. Notation: this requirement shall not apply where loading a truck to its maximum capacity would result in possible spillage, environmental problems or quality issues.

 

(b) Loading Order

 

(i) The initial daily starting order will be in accordance with a cyclic roster.

 

(ii) Thereafter all trucks will be loaded in order of their return to the plant with the exception of:

(c) Trucks with returned concrete.

 

(d) Notation: where the last load of the day or message can be sent in one (1) load so as to avoid extra cartage cost then the Contractor has the right to nominate a truck to take the load even though that truck is not the next in line in the roster. If sending the load in more than one truck will not involve extra cartage cost then the loading order will not change.

 

(iii) The Contractor will operate a fleet of vehicles driven by its employees. This fleet of company owned vehicles will work in all rosters on the same basis as the Carrier Fleet.

 

(iv) The Contractor's employee driven vehicles will not be preferentially loaded.

 

(v) The initial loading time and the initial plant from which such loading shall take place will be notified by the Contractor to each Carrier before the close of business on the previous day.

 

11. Hazardous Approach to Job Site

 

(a)

 

(i) A Carrier shall have the right to refuse to enter upon ground which he considers unsafe or extraordinarily hazardous. If a Carrier does refuse entry and the delivery is completed on that day by other vehicles without the use of additional equipment then the Carrier that has refused entry will not be paid for the delivery or return cartage unless the load has been diverted to another job in which case his delivery to the alternate location will be paid as if it were a new delivery from the plant where batched to the alternate location.

 

(ii) If however the Carrier has notified the plant of the unsafe or hazardous job site and/or approach but attempts unsuccessfully to enter, he will be paid the cartage rate to and from the delivery site even if the delivery is ultimately completed, as above.

 

(iii) In all cases if the Carrier refuses to enter and the delivery is not completed on that day without the use of additional equipment the Carrier will be paid the total cartage rate to the job site plus return cartage if the load is returned to the plant if instructed by the Contractor, unless the load is diverted to an alternate location in which case the Carrier will be paid in accordance with 5.15 Diverted Loads, hereof.

 

(iv) If the Carrier is required to wait for instructions from the plant he will be paid at the rate of "D" per minute for the total time he is required to wait after he has notified his plant.

 

(b) Bogged Vehicles

 

(i) Where a Carrier goes beyond the kerb to complete a delivery and his vehicle becomes bogged or is otherwise rendered inoperative as a consequence of such attempted delivery, the Contractor will arrange the services of an experienced salvage contractor to extricate the vehicle as soon as possible and will bear all costs for those arrangements.

 

(ii) It will be the Contractor's responsibility to ensure that the salvage contractor selected is covered by the appropriate insurance policy to rectify any damage that the salvage contractor may cause to the Carrier's vehicle during the extrication process.

 

(iii) Waiting time will be paid to the Carrier from the time the Carrier notifies the plant until the time of completion of extrication.

 

(iv) Provided further that the reimbursement provision shall not apply where the vehicle becomes inoperative as a direct result of the Carrier's gross negligence or deliberate actions.

 

(c) The Carrier shall be responsible for damage to property or vehicle arising from off-kerb delivery provided that the Carrier will not have responsibility in situations where the Carrier has been prevented from exercising due care (e.g. where a third party has given the Carrier poor directions which resulted in damage) or where the Carrier has properly notified the customer of the risk of damage. Damage claims are to be settled quickly.

 

12. Availability of a Suitable Vehicle

 

(a) It is the obligation of the Carrier on each working day to personally supply, man, operate, and keep serviceable, the vehicle. Any variation to this obligation will require notification from either party.

(ii) The Contractor shall have the discretion to refuse to load a vehicle that is unregistered or obviously defective.

 

If the vehicle is subsequently shown by the Roads and Traffic Authority not to be defective the Carrier will be paid as compensation at the rate "J" per hour or part thereof from the time the load was refused until the Contractor agrees to load the vehicle, with a maximum of eight (8) hours per day together with any additional statutory charges.

 

(c) An unserviceable vehicle shall be repaired as soon as practicable.

(ii) Any failure to report any obvious unusual feature arising from a visual inspection shall be dealt with in accordance with the Disputes Procedure herein.

 

(e) When a load is rejected at a job site because the slump is outside the nominated tolerance contained herein, or the Carrier has not visually inspected the load prior to leaving the plant the Carrier will not be paid for the cartage. If the load is subsequently dumped the Carrier shall refund to the Contractor the materials cost as detailed in the Bill of Materials (BOM) in circumstances where the slump is so grossly out of specification (i.e. two times the tolerance) that the Carrier has failed the duty of care.

(iii) The Carrier will take all due care for any money collected.

 

(i) In the case of a delivery of concrete to a kerb-making machine, the Carrier assumes no responsibility for the slump of the load as it is delivered in an "as batched" condition. However the Carrier will remain responsible for the detection of obvious problems such as high slump or complete absence of cement.

 

(j) Where an additive is added by the customer or third party after batching, the Carrier is automatically absolved of any responsibility for the slump.

 

(k) The concrete specification as shown on the cartage docket cannot be changed by any party after batching.

 

(l)

 

(i) Where returned concrete is re-used and is more than 1 1/2 hours old at the time of reloading, and the return cartage is greater than 0.8 m3 and topped up, the Contractor will assume full responsibility for the load, thus excluding the Carrier from his responsibility for the slump of the load.

 

(ii) The Carrier will assume responsibility for any breaches in vehicle legal load limits in relation to this matter as the Contractor has given the Carrier the discretion to dump any concrete from that topped-up load that the Carrier may deem to place him in breach of his vehicle's legal load limit.
