or a Pre-Assignment Agreement (for a permanent assignment)

with Transporter and by demonstrating credit-worthiness, in

the same manner and subject to the same standards and

requirement on a non-discriminatory basis for Bidders on a

Releasing Shipper provides Transporter with a guarantee

satisfactory to Transporter of all financial obligations of

the Replacement Shipper under its Released Transportation

Service Agreement prior to the commencement of service to

the Replacement Shipper.
