  1. DELIVERY.  Provider shall attempt in good faith to effect delivery approximately in accordance with the instructions set forth in Customer’s order, but Provider shall not be responsible or liable for any delays or failure in such delivery.

During any period of shortage of any product, Provider shall have the right to allocate its supply of such product among its customers, including Customer, pursuant to their respective orders and contracts in any manner Provider deems appropriate.  Provider shall in no event be responsible or liable for any delay or failure to effect delivery due to any cause which is unavoidable or beyond Provider’s reasonable control and which prevents, impairs or adversely affects in any way Provider’s performance under any order, including but not limited to war, fire, flood, natural disaster, pandemic, strike, labor dispute, act of God, governmental action, civil disturbance, accident, or inability to obtain or use materials, labor, equipment, facilities or transportation; in such cases, Provider shall have the right, at its option, without penalty or any liability for breach, to terminate all or any part of any order or to reschedule delivery within a reasonable time.

INSPECTION; CLAIMS FOR DAMAGE IN TRANSIT.  Customer shall carefully examine all deliveries of Equipment made hereunder and within five (5) calendar days of receipt notify Provider of any alleged error, shortage, defect or non-conformity of any such Equipment.
