Volume based contracts

Agreements can be made based on volumes/capacity. Such contracts stipulate that a shipper will deliver to a carrier a certain amount of cargo (TEUs, tonnes, boxes, etc.), in a certain period of time, under conditions specified in the contract. These contracts are used when a shipper knows that they need to ship a defined amount of cargo in a certain time period, but they do not know the exact dates that these shipments will be executed. By contracting with a carrier on a volume basis the shipper is able to secure capacity that must be made available when the shipment dates actually become known.
