B-143433, APR. 27, 1961

TO EISEN AND KNUDSON:

FURTHER REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR LETTER OF JULY 1, 1960, IN WHICH YOU REQUESTED, ON BEHALF OF KENOSHA AUTO TRANSPORT CORPORATION, A REVEIW OF THE SETTLEMENT DENYING THEIR CLAIM FOR AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT ALLEGEDLY DUE FOR TRANSPORTATION SERVICES FURNISHED BY THAT COMPANY UNDER GOVERNMENT BILL OF LADING AF-5073342.

UPON REVIEW OF THE MATTER, IT APPEARS THAT NATIONAL AUTOMOBILE TRANSPORTERS ASSOCIATION TARIFF 106-E AUTHORIZES THE APPLICATION OF THE RATES PROVIDED THEREIN FROM ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, TO DESTINATION ON THE ACTUAL WEIGHT OF A LESS-THAN-TRUCKLOAD SHIPMENT ONLY WHEN THE SHIPMENT ACTUALLY MOVES AS PART OF A FULL TRUCKLOAD, AND AUTHORIZES THE MOVEMENT OF A LESS-THAN-TRUCKLOAD SHIPMENT, OTHER THAN AS PART OF A FULL TRUCKLOAD, ONLY AT THE TRUCKLOAD MINIMUM WEIGHT AND RATE.

ACCORDINGLY, THE CARRIER'S CLAIM WILL BE ALLOWED, IF OTHERWISE PROPER, AND PAYMENT THEREOF WILL BE MADE IN DUE COURSE.
