Haven, Inc., a limited liability entity incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands, located at 190 Elgin Ave., George Town, Grand Cayman KY1-9005 Cayman Islands (“Haven,” “we,” “us,” “our”) provides its services (described below) to you through its website located at www.haveninc.com (the “Site”) and through its mobile applications and related services (collectively, such services, including any new features and applications, affiliate websites, and the Site, the “Service(s)”), subject to the following Terms of Service (as amended from time to time, the “Terms of Service”). We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change or modify portions of these Terms of Service at any time. If we do this, we will post the changes on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. We will also notify you, either through the Services user interface, in an email notification or through other reasonable means. Any such changes will become effective no earlier than fourteen (14) days after they are posted, except that changes addressing new functions of the Services or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. Your continued use of the Service after the date any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service.
Haven’s Service is a marketplace that connects any air, ocean, or logistics carriers (“Carriers”) to entities who need to ship cargo or freight (“Shippers”) to offer, sell and buy freight reservations, capacity, or associated products in a variety of pricing formats and locations. “User”, “you”, “your” means any user of the Service, and may be a Carrier or Shipper or a party that represents themselves as such, including but not limited to Non-vessel owner common carrier (“NVOCC”) or Freight Forwarder (“Forwarder”). To the extent you are a Carrier, the provisions in this Terms of Service regarding Carriers apply to you. To the extent you are a Shipper, the provisions in this Agreement regarding Shippers apply to you.
Shippers may submit a request for a shipment (“Shipment”) through the Service. Without limitation, Shipper will provide origin and destination addresses, the requested date and pickup time of the Shipment, a description of the items being shipped (including weight or any applicable dimensions) and any other relevant information about the Shipment. Haven is not responsible for any additional Shipment terms that may govern the specific cargo type, including but not limited to Incoterms, international conventions on dangerous goods, or government restrictions. Once the Shipment is accepted for posting by Haven on the Site, the details of the Shipment are posted to the Service. Haven may designate, at it’s own discretion, certain preferred Carriers that will be able to view and accept the Shipment prior to other Carriers. After a certain period of time, the Shipment will be viewable to all Carriers in the immediate area. Shippers may cancel a Shipment at any time prior to it being accepted by a Carrier. Carriers may view a list of the available Shipments in its immediate area at any time and accept a Shipment through the Service. The first Carrier to accept a Shipment will be assigned the Shipment. Once accepted by a Carrier, Haven will notify Shipper that the Shipment has been accepted. Shipper and Carrier will receive each other’s phone number, email address, or preferred contact method. Alternatively, Shippers may request a quote for a Shipment based on origin and destination addresses, size and quantity of shipment and dates (“Shipment Quote”). Haven will then respond to Shipper by providing a Shipment Quote and notify the Shipper if a Carrier accepts such Shipment Quote. Shippers may also book through the Service by selecting a Shipment quote made available by a Carrier. Each Shipper and Carrier is responsible for providing their own phones for use with the Service. Haven does not guarantee that a Shipment will be accepted by a Carrier. If a Shipment is not accepted by a Carrier, Haven will notify the Shipper that no Carrier is available and try posting the Shipment again.
Shipper must issue and provide relevant shipment details (“Shipping Instructions”) so that the Carrier may issue a Bill of Lading (“Bill of Lading”) or any applicable documents for each Shipment. The Shipping Instructions must contain, at minimum, the names and addresses of thethe origin and destination addresses, the requested pickup and delivery dates and times, description of the items being shipped (including weight) and other relevant terms and conditions, any other applicable parties to the transaction, or any other required information needed for Carrier to fulfill it’s duties to perform. Once the Shipment has been completed, Carrier may upload to the Service a proof of delivery, Notice of Arrival, or Bill of Lading for the authorized recipient (“Proof of Delivery”). For avoidance of doubt, Carrier, not Haven, issues the Bill of Lading. Carrier will direct any questions or concerns regarding the Bill of Lading to the applicable Shipper either independently or via the Service. Any routing instructions provided by Haven via the Service are for informational purposes only.
For the avoidance of doubt, Haven provides only the platform for posting and accepting Shipments and the billing services described in the Payment Terms section described in this Terms of Service. The actual contract for Shipping services, including any Bills of Lading are between the Carriers and Shippers. While Haven may provide pricing, listing, routing instructions, and other guidance in our Services, such guidance is solely informational and you may decide to follow it or not. Also, while we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through various programs, Haven has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of services advertised; the truth or accuracy of users’ content or listings; the ability of Carriers to sell Shipping services; the ability of Shippers to pay for services; or that a Carrier or Shipper will actually complete a transaction.

As a Carrier, you may also have access to tools that will enable you to translate content as requested. The accuracy or availability of translations is not guaranteed.
For each Shipment, Shipper will pay Haven the fees provided to Shipper on the Site when the applicable Shipment was accepted on the Service (“Shipment Fee”). If you are a Shipper and you have provided a valid payment instrument, you represent and warrant to Haven that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You agree to pay Haven the amount that is specified for the Shipment Fee in accordance with the terms of such Shipment Fee and this Terms of Service. You hereby authorize Haven to bill your payment instrument immediately after acceptance of the Shipment and you agree that no additional notice or consent is required.

You expressly consent to this reversal if you falsely or incorrectly dispute a charge. If you wish to dispute a charge by mail or telephone please contact Haven at info [at] Haveninc.com. Haven may choose to bill through an invoice with varying credit terms given based on numerous factors, all at Haven’s discretion, in which case, full payment for invoices issued in any given month must be received by Haven by the due date, or the Services may be terminated. Unpaid invoices are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the Services other than taxes based on Haven’s net income.
For each Shipment, Haven will pay Carrier the fees listed to Carrier when Carrier accepted the Shipment (“Carrier Fee”). Carrier agrees that it is entitled to the Carrier Fee only after completion of the Shipment, which shall be payable to Carrier fifteen (15) days after Haven’s receipt of the Proof of Delivery in accordance with this Agreement. Haven will remit the Carrier Fees to Carrier on a weekly basis. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the authorized recipient indicates on the Proof of Delivery or otherwise that the Shipment has shortages, or has been damaged, lost, delayed, not completed or otherwise files a claim regarding the Shipment and Shipper notifies Haven of this within a reasonable time after the Shipment (but in no case longer than nine (3) months after completion of the Shipment), Haven shall have the right to withhold payment of any Carrier Fee due to the Carrier until such problem with the Shipment or claim has been settled. The only rights that Carrier has to receive any amounts from Haven are set forth in this Section of the Terms of Service.

At Haven’s or your election, all disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service or the Service that are not resolved by mutual agreement may be resolved by binding arbitration to be conducted before JAMS, or its successor. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, arbitration will be held in San Francisco, California before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, or if the parties cannot mutually agree, a single arbitrator appointed by JAMS, and will be conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated by JAMS unless specifically modified in the Terms of Service. The arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator’s decision and award will be made and delivered within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration and within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will not have the power to award damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in the Terms of Service and may not multiply actual damages or award punitive damages or any other damages that are specifically excluded under the Terms of Service, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any claim to such damages. The arbitrator may, in his or her discretion, assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing part) against any party to a proceeding. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, any party may proceed in court without prior arbitration for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm. The provisions of this arbitration section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the introductory section above, if Haven changes this ‘Arbitration’ section after the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service ), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Date of Last Revision” date above or in the date of Haven’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and Haven in accordance with the provisions of this section as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
You agree that Haven, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if Haven believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Haven may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Haven may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that Haven will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Service.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Service and Haven will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. Haven reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Haven and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Haven with respect to the Service. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third party services, third party content or third party software. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Haven agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within San Francisco County, California. The failure of Haven to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign this Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Haven, but Haven may assign or transfer this Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service.
