25. SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS

 

Any company which shall succeed by purchase, merger or consolidation to

the properties, substantially as an entirety, of Shipper or Transporter

shall be entitled to the rights and shall be subject to the obligations

of its predecessor in title under the transportation service agreement;

provided, however, that Transporter reserves the right to evaluate and

approve the creditworthiness of the new entity in accordance with the

credit evaluation provision of these General Terms and Conditions. No

other assignment of a transportation service agreement or any of the

rights or obligations thereunder shall be made by Shipper unless there

first shall have been obtained the written consent thereto of

Transporter. Shipper or Transporter may pledge or assign its respective

right, title and interest in and to and under a transportation service

agreement to a trustee or trustees, individual or corporate, as security

for bonds or other obligations or securities without the necessity of

such trustee or trustees becoming in any respect obligated to perform

the obligations of the assignor under a transportation service agreement

and, if any such trustee be a corporation, without its being required to

qualify to do business in any State in which performance of the

transportation service agreement may occur.
