This information must be transmitted with each update. All of these documents must also be communicated immediately at the express request of OPTIMALOGISTIC.

F – Subcontracting
OPTIMALOGISTIC, freight forwarder, promotes the direct link between the shipper and the carrier carrying out the mission via its website and its applications.

Similarly, the rating assigned to it by its client(s) cannot be contested due to the use of a potential subcontractor. The use of a network of carriers is authorized from the moment the carrier having reserved the service notifies the sender and continues to assume all the obligations mentioned in these T & Cs vis-à-vis the sender (in particular in terms of direct compensation). In the event of a breach of this obligation, OPTIMALOGISTIC may pronounce the immediate exclusion of the carrier concerned.
Art 9 – Quality of carriers and service as a whole
OPTIMALOGISTIC in no way guarantees Carriers selection by Shippers. The Sender also does not have the possibility of choosing a particular carrier for the delivery of the goods. OPTIMALOGISTIC does not guarantee the Shipper the ability of carriers to respond on the Site. The Users of the services act with knowledge of the facts and assume their responsibility for the services provided via the platform and their possible consequences. The quality control of the services will be carried out in particular by the evaluations and by the analysis of the disputes that the Shippers and the Carriers are invited to declare following the performance of the services in accordance with article 12.

The carrier has access to the scale of the principal, in order to avoid any confusion on the amount of the service.
Art 11 – Shipper pricing
An estimate will be established for the sender on the OPTIMALOGISTIC platform, once the details and specifications of his request have been entered by him. Once this estimate has been accepted, the tariff proposals contained therein are binding on the Shipper. Before acceptance by a Carrier, the Shipper nevertheless has the option of canceling its request free of charge.
After acceptance by a carrier, the quotes are binding on both parties, Shipper and Carrier, who undertake to fulfill the request. Any cancellation will then result in penalties invoiced to the party who initiated it and described in article 14, which the parties acknowledge and accept. As such, the volume, weight, dimensions of the various goods and packages, the pick-up and delivery addresses, and all related comments, as well as the potential options, mentioned in the accepted and validated quotes, must be maintained for the duration of the contract. A variation of the tariffs will be automatically applicable in the event of modification of one of the components of the price accepted by the sender, or of any error emanating from his fact, including and without restriction: inaccurate dimensions or weight, erroneous or incorrect address , unknown contact, unsuitable means of handling, truck accessibility not provided for and not indicated, specific accessibility not specified, or any other failure in the declaration of the service requested. In this sense, it is specified that when entering a transport request, the sender has the option of entering comments relating to the specificities of the service he is requesting. The sender is liable for all the consequences of the absence or insufficiency of said comments. In particular, the sender undertakes to assume all liability relating to a defect in the packaging, packaging, marking or labeling, as well as a breach of the obligation to inform and declare on the nature and particularities of the goods, for example with regard to dangerous goods. The price for the carrier is all-inclusive (in particular tolls, fuel tax, tunnels, bridges, etc.): no additional costs can be accepted after validation of the quote, except for breaches opposable to the sender in the description of his shipment. On these bases, the prices are calculated by OPTIMALOGISTIC according to the price algorithm developed internally and are based on several criteria, including in particular, without these being limiting: the estimated driving time, the estimated handling time, the average cost price of the profession and the cost price indicators provided by the CNR (National Roads Committee), the volume and weight of the goods to be transported, the urgency of service. These rates are likely to change according to the different cost prices that impact the transport services. As such, OPTIMALOGISTIC only guarantees the price communicated at the time of validation of the order and cannot guarantee the same price for the same service over a given period. OPTIMALOGISTIC's desire is to guarantee carriers rates at least equal to their cost price. It is recalled that selling at a loss is strictly prohibited in Tunisia. The options are applied according to customer requests and are also subject to adjustment. However, the price of the options will always be displayed before any order so as to maintain full transparency in their application. The rates are deemed accepted at the time of validation of the request.
Art 12 – Disputes / Reservations
All disputes arising during a transport service, whether during loading and/or unloading or during the service itself, whether they concern the goods or not (delay, accessibility, etc.) must be the subject of "reservations" duly justified and stipulated on the delivery note (BL), the consignment note or the CMR. These reservations must have been signed (a signature by a person authorized to represent the company loaded or delivered) on the delivery note concerned. OPTIMALOGISTIC provides shippers and carriers with a web and telephone platform to manage disputes related to a service. If one of the parties so requests, OPTIMALOGISTIC will intervene in the management of the dispute as commission agent and will have full latitude to issue an opinion according to the applicable laws, and to adjust the price of the service upwards or downwards. decline, according to the conditions of article 11, and depending on the case, additionally or not, according to the penalties described in article 14, what the users acknowledge and accept. If the questioning of the sender were to be made by the carrier, the latter must provide proof of this by any means necessary for this purpose: photo of the goods with condition of the pallets, packages or packaging, unagreed and unspecified accessibility for heavy goods vehicles, incorrect addresses, necessary options not required, etc. The only declaration of the driver who carried out the service will not be admissible. It is also recalled that all reservations, of whatever nature, must be confirmed by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt for the attention of OPTIMALOGISTIC or the carrier within 3 working days of the service. It is reminded if necessary that the mention "subject to opening" has no legal value. All these steps are mandatory for the regulatory insurance of OPTIMALOGISTIC or carriers to apply. Failure to comply with this procedure may result in the insurers refusing to take charge of disputes, even if they are proven. As such and in this case, neither the carrier, nor OPTIMALOGISTIC, can be blamed if the various documents which constitute the legal proof of the dispute or the reservations are missing, incomplete, or sent after the legal deadlines. As part of the services offered by OPTIMALOGISTIC, and more specifically its intervention in the resolution of disputes, the sender must imperatively send OPTIMALOGISTIC a hard copy of the letter confirming the reservations, with a photocopy of the acknowledgment of receipt as well as the related BL or CMR and any other element relating to the dispute. OPTIMALOGISTIC may question each of the parties to the dispute and ask them for any information or additional information. At the end of the study of the dispute, OPTIMALOGISTIC will have full latitude to issue an opinion according to the applicable laws, and to adjust the price of the service and to proceed with any compensation on the means of payment communicated by the parties. Users acknowledge that OPTIMALOGISTIC's decision will be binding on them and undertake not to oppose any compensation for their means of payment.
Art 13 – Invoicing Shippers and Carriers
Shippers and carriers expressly authorize OPTIMALOGISTIC to issue them each invoice in electronic format. The terms of invoicing and payment of invoices are specified on the site and on the application when the quotes are accepted by the Shippers and the Carriers. Under no circumstances can the sender pay the carrier directly without going through the payment methods made available to them by the platform. Only payment through the platform guarantees the parties the possibility of benefiting from OPTIMALOGISTIC services before, during and after the service. OPTIMALOGISTIC invoices the costs of legal recovery of 30 dinars excluding tax per unpaid invoice.
Art 14 – Compensation for Shippers and Carriers
As a reminder, any dispute or breach originating solely from an inaccuracy in the data provided by the Shipper when requesting transport, may give rise, on the decision of OPTIMALOGISTIC, to a price adjustment as described in Article 11, what users recognize and accept. For other cases, the following compensation, including the OPTIMALOGISTIC commission, will be calculated and payable to the offending party:
