When, at time of booking, a Shipper or his Agent requests that a particular size transporting container or equipment be made available for Shipper to load, and due to operational exigencies, Carrier is unable to provide or obtain such size container or equipment, Carrier at its option and convenience may, when available, furnish Shipper with a different container or equipment size than  the one requested for Shipper's use, SBJ to the following provisions and restrictions.      


a. Ocean freight and charges will be calculated and assessed based on the size of the container or equipment requested and booked by the Shipper, PROVIDED, the Shipper does NOT load more cargo into or onto the container or equipment actually furnished than could have been loaded within or on the container or equipment requested.
