The Carrier is not responsible for loading and unloading of the Package.

2.2. For the delivery of Package, the Client enters into a Delivery Agreement directly with the Carrier. The Delivery Agreement is deemed to be concluded from the moment that the order for delivery of a Package is confirmed by the Carrier via Bolt App. Carriers who do not wish to use Bolt App for deliveries of Packages can opt out from such deliveries by notifying Bolt respectively.
