RXO is not liable for any loss or damage arising from Carrier’s failure to comply with these requirements.

In the event RXO seeks indemnification or defense from Carrier under this provision, RXO will promptly notify Carrier in writing of the claim(s) brought against RXO or losses attributed to misuse by Carrier for which RXO seeks indemnification or defense. RXO reserves the right, at RXO’s option and in RXO’s sole discretion, to assume full control of the defense of claims, if applicable, with legal counsel of RXO’s choice. Carrier may not enter into any third-party agreement that would, in any manner whatsoever, constitute an admission of fault by RXO or bind RXO in any manner, without RXO’s prior written consent.
