and to the extent that COMPANY and SHIPPER have agreed, each acting

in its sole discretion, to such service and have executed a written Agency

Agreement that contains the terms, conditions and fees applicable to such

the payment to COMPANY or other provider of the fees and charges for the

services arranged and the acts performed on behalf of SHIPPER. It is

provided further that if the agency services referred to in this Section 24 are

the actions of the agent within the scope of its authority to the same extent

as it would accept the actions of SHIPPER, shall provide that SHIPPER shall
