In the event performance by one Party is affected by any cause beyond the reasonable control of such Party, including without limitation, fire, labor strife, riot, war, weather conditions, acts of the public enemy, acts of God, acts of terrorism, local or national disruptions to transportation networks or operations, material equipment repairs, fuel shortages, governmental regulations, or governmental request as requisition for national defense, or requests of governmental officials, and provided that the applicable cause is not attributable to the acts or omissions of such Party, and such Party is taking reasonable measures to remove or mitigate the effects of the applicable cause, then the running of all periods of time, the performance of all obligations required herein shall be suspended during the continuance of such interruption and such Party shall not bear any liability for loss or damage to freight resulting therefrom. Such Party shall promptly notify the other Party of such interruption. Such period of suspension shall not in any way invalidate this Agreement, but on resumption of operations, any affected performance by such Party shall be resumed. The affected Party shall be permitted an extension period equal to the period of suspension to complete shipments adversely affected by the suspension. No liability shall be incurred by either Party for damages resulting from such suspensions.
