Charges for packing or drayage will not be allowed unless specified in the purchase order. Materials must be packed and shipped in conformity with tariff or classifications to secure lowest possible freight rates. All materials furnished under a Metropolitan agreement are subject to test and inspection, and, if rejected, are held subject to order of shipper, with accrued charges. Until delivery and acceptance, and after any rejection, the risk of loss or damage to items is on the Contractor.
Inspection and acceptance takes place at the destination unless specified otherwise and is performed by Metropolitan personnel shown on the shipping address or another duly authorized representative of Metropolitan. Metropolitan has no obligation to accept damaged shipments, over-shipments, goods shipped in error, or other non-conformity. It reserves the right to return, at the Contractor's expense, non-conforming items even though the non-conformity was not discovered until after receipt. It is the Contractor's legal responsibility to deliver goods in accordance with the terms and conditions.
