49 CFR §377.105. Collection and remittance.
Every common carrier of property subject
to 49 U.S.C. 13702, except as otherwise provided in Sec. 377.101, which chooses
to provide c.o.d. service may publish and maintain, or cause to be published and
maintained for its account, a tariff or tariffs which set forth
nondiscriminatory rules governing c.o.d. service and the collection and
remittance of c.o.d. funds. Alternatively, any carrier that provides c.o.d.
service, but does not wish to publish and maintain, or cause to be published and
maintained, its own nondiscriminatory tariff, may adopt a rule requiring
remittance of each c.o.d. collection directly to the consignor or other person
designated by the consignor as payee within fifteen (15) days after delivery of
the c.o.d. shipment to the consignee.
