In the said section, the broker of construction trucking services is required to “pay all transportation charges submitted by a motor carrier of property in dump truck equipment by the 25th day following the last day of the calendar month in which the transportation was performed” – as long as the necessary documents for the said charges are submitted on the 5th day following the last day of the calendar month.

How does a California Broker of Construction Trucking Services Bond work?
There are three parties to this bond:
Principal – broker of construction trucking services
Obligee – motor carrier of property in dump truck equipment
Surety – surety bond issuer
To ensure that the Principal will pay the claims of the Obligee at the specified time, the Obligee requires a guarantor. The guarantor will be the Surety. The Surety will ensure that the Obligee will be paid in case the Principal fails to pay the Obligee.
If a default happens, the Obligee will have to file a bond claim first. The claim will show all the important details about the default. The Surety will settle the claim only if the Principal fails to do so. Before the Surety pays the Obligee, the Surety will first perform an investigation of the claim.
Once the claim is verified, the Surety will make the necessary payments to the Obligee. As part of the agreement between the Principal and the Surety, the Principal must reimburse the Surety of all the payments made by the latter.
