    Need help with a sentence...

    Hello,

    here's the sentence I'm having trouble understanding, particularly the part in bold. Could someone paraphrase it into a more understandable version for a non-native speaker? :)


    There are no stopping places which are agreed upon at the time of tender of the shipment, and UPS reserves the right to route the shipment in any way UPS deems appropriate.

    UPS will get the package from point A to point B. There is no agreement that the package will go to any certain other points ("stopping places") along the way. UPS will get it to point B in the manner that it deems proper.

    Say you are shipping something from New York to Los Angeles. UPS has no agreement that says it will go to Chicago first. It might go through Kansas City or Dallas or Denver. There is no agreement about how the package gets to LA, only that it does get there.
