Brokers will identify their account to Carrier and/or as each new account is added, it will be added to the contract. Carrier acknowledges the account as Broker’s account when freight begins moving via Carrier, and the account becomes Broker’s account with this contract being fully applicable and a commission on all traffic that is moved by Carrier for that account shall be paid to Broker. If Carrier institutes the termination of the contract, Carrier agrees to refrain from the contract of solicitation of Broker’s company accounts and to refrain from handling any freight that was previously handled under this contract. If after Carrier initiates termination of this contract, Carrier does not refrain from contacting or soliciting or handling freight previously handled under this contract, Carrier agrees to pay Broker ten percent (10%) of any and all billings. Carrier issues for such movements for one (1) year following the date of such termination. 14. Carrier agrees that Broker may publicly report this breach of the Agreement, if it occurs, to any trade association or publication, and that the facts as to the breach may be published.
