Terminating road would collect the freight charges. Charges that were "Advanced" such as diversion, perishable service, livestock FWR, would be peeled off and paid to the party due. The rest, just like per diem, would be handled through a settlement process that only paid balances due.
Was this always true? I have seen PFE shipments on SP waybills that clearly show loads outbound to the East, originating on SP, which are marked to be paid by the shipper to SP. Is that an "advance" payment?
