1-6.2 Private Carrier Responsibilities

Private carriers are cautioned to ensure that their carriage of matter is lawful within the definitions, exceptions, suspensions, and conditions contained in the PES. Carriers must take reasonable measures to inform their customers of the contents of these regulations so that only proper matter is tendered to them for carriage. Carriers should desist from carrying any matter when the form of shipment, identity of sender or recipient, or any other information reasonably accessible to them indicates that matter tendered to them for carriage is not proper under these regulations. For additional information, see 39 CFR 310.4 and 310.5.
