PURCHASE ORDER STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These Purchase Order Standard Terms and Conditions, and the Purchase Order to which these terms are attached, are the complete terms of the order (collectively, the “Order”) between TransCore or the relevant TransCore affiliate (“Buyer”) and the seller identified on the face of the Purchase Order (“Seller”).
1. DELIVERY AND ACCEPTANCE.
The time of delivery stated is of the essence of this Order. The date specified for delivery is the required delivery, date at Buyer's plant (FOB Destination). Unless otherwise specifically noted hereon, Buyer reserves the right to refuse any goods or services and to cancel all or any part hereof if Seller fails to deliver all or any part of any goods or perform all or any part of any services in accordance with the terms specified herein. If Seller's deliveries will not meet agreed schedules, Buyer may require Seller to ship via a more rapid route or carrier in order to expedite such delivery and any difference in cost caused by such change shall be paid by Seller provided, nevertheless, that such right shall be in addition to any other rights and remedies of Buyer. Acceptance of any part of the Order shall not bind Buyer to accept future shipments or performance of services nor deprive it of the right to return goods already accepted and shall not be deemed to be a waiver of Buyer's right to cancel or return all or any part of the goods because of failure to conform to Order or by reason of defects, latent or patent, or other breach of warranty, or to make any claim for damages, including manufacturing cost or loss of profits, injury to reputation or other special, consequential and incidental damages. Such rights shall be in addition to any other remedies provided hereunder or provided by law or otherwise. Delivery shall not be deemed to be complete until goods have been actually received and accepted by Buyer, notwithstanding delivery to any carrier, or until orders for services have been performed, received and accepted.
2. ACCEPTANCE/MODIFICATION OF TERMS
This Order may be accepted only by Seller's agreement to all of the terms and conditions of this Order. Acceptance may be made by signing the acknowledgment copy hereof and returning it or by part performance hereunder, and any such acceptance shall constitute an unqualified agreement to the terms and conditions set forth herein unless otherwise modified in writing by the parties. Acceptance of this Order is limited to the terms and conditions stated herein. Any additions, deletions or differences in the terms proposed by Seller are objected to and hereby rejected, unless Buyer agrees otherwise in writing. No additional or different terms and conditions proposed by the Seller in accepting this Order shall be binding upon Buyer unless accepted in writing by Buyer and no other addition, alteration or modification to, and no waiver of any of the provisions herein contained shall be valid unless made in writing and executed by Buyer and Seller.
3. PACKING AND SHIPPING
The goods purchased hereunder must be suitably packed and prepared for shipment to secure the lowest transportation rates or appropriately packed to comply with any specific transportation specifications of Buyer, and in all cases, to comply with carrier's regulations. All charges for packing, crating and transportation are included in the price for the goods set forth herein and will be paid by Seller except as otherwise specifically stated in this Order. A Packing List shall accompany each box or package shipment showing the order number specified hereon as well as the item number and a description of the goods. In the event that no such Packing List accompanies any shipment, the count or weight or other measure of Buyer shall be final and conclusive. Buyer shall not be obligated to accept any shipments in excess of the ordered quantity and any excess or advance shipments may be returned to Seller at Seller's expense.
Invoices shall be submitted in duplicate and shall contain the following information: Order number, item number, description of articles, sizes, quantities, unit prices and extended totals. Invoices submitted hereunder will be Net 30 Days and paid within thirty (30) days after receipt of invoices or acceptance of delivered items by the buyer, whichever occurs later, unless otherwise specified on the face of this Order. Any adjustments in Seller's invoices due to shortages, late delivery, rejections, or other failure to comply with the requirements of this Order may be made by Buyer before payment. Cash discounts will be taken from date of final acceptance of delivered items, or date of acceptable invoice, whichever is later. Payment shall not constitute final acceptance. Buyer may offset against any payment hereunder any amount owed to Buyer by Seller.
All items furnished on this Order under the part number specified shall be fully interchangeable with and equal in function and quality to articles heretofore furnished under the same part number.
Seller represents and warrants (1) that the price charged for the goods and/or services purchased pursuant hereto shall be no higher than Seller's current price to any other customer for the same quality and quantity of such goods or services; (2) that all goods delivered pursuant hereto will be new, unless otherwise specified, and free from defects in material and workmanship; (3) that all goods will conform to applicable specifications, drawings, and standards of quality and performance, and that all items will be free from defects in design and suitable for their intended purpose; (4) that the goods covered by this Order are fit and safe for consumer use, if so intended; (5) that all services performed pursuant hereto will be free from defects in material and workmanship and will be performed in accordance with the specifications and instructions of Buyer, provided nevertheless that Seller retain discretion and control with respect to the manner and means of performing such services and shall at all times remain an independent contractor. All the representations and warranties of Seller together with its service warranties and guarantees, if any, shall run to Buyer and Buyer's customers. Seller agrees to indemnify and hold Buyer harmless from all claims, liability loss, damage and expense including special, consequential and incidental damages incurred or sustained by Buyer by reason of any breach of any warranty with respect to the goods or services which are purchased in accordance herewith. The foregoing warranties shall survive any delivery, inspection, acceptance or payment by Buyer.
All goods supplied and services performed pursuant hereto shall be subject to inspection and test by Buyer and its agents and by its customers at all times and places, whether during or after manufacture as to goods, or performance as to services, and notwithstanding the terms of delivery or payment or, as to goods, that title has not yet passed to Buyer or to its customers. In the event that goods supplied do not perform in accordance with the specifications and instructions of Buyer, Buyer may require prompt correction thereof, or may require that the goads be replaced at Seller's expense, or as to services, require that the services be rendered again at Seller's expense. If such defects exist or if Seller is unable or refuses to replace the goods or render the service again promptly, Buyer may, by contract or otherwise, replace such goods or obtain such services and charge Seller or deduct from amounts owed by Buyer to Seller the costs, expenses and losses including incidental and consequential damages incurred thereby which are in excess of Seller's price for such goods or services. After notification to Seller that goods are defective all risk of loss with respect to such goods shall be in Seller and Seller shall pay all packing and shipping charges in connection with defective goods returned by the Buyer. Buyer's approval of design furnished by Seller shall not relieve Seller of its obligations herein. The goods covered by this Order are intended for the manufacture and sale of Buyer's established products in which Buyer has built a substantial and valuable reputation for quality and efficiency and any defect in the goods hereunder may occasion special damage to Buyer. All rights and remedies of the Buyer hereunder shall be in addition to any other remedies provided by law.

If any such change or suspension causes a material increase or decrease in the cost of, or the time required for the performance of any part of the work under this Order, an equitable adjustment shall be made in the Order price or delivery schedule, or both, provided Seller shall have notified Buyer in writing of any claim for such adjustment within twenty days from the date of such notice from Buyer or from the date of any act of Buyer which Seller considers constitutes such a change. No such adjustment or any other modification of the terms of this Order will be allowed unless authorized by Buyer by means of a written revision to this Order.
