(A) A lessor may stop delivery of goods in the possession of a carrier or other bailee
if the lessor discovers the lessee to be insolvent and may stop delivery of carload,
truckload, planeload, or larger shipments of express or freight if the lessee repudiates
or fails to make a payment due before delivery, whether for rent, security, or otherwise
under the lease contract, or for any other reason the lessor has a right to withhold
or take possession of the goods.
(B) In pursuing its remedies under division (A) of this section, the lessor may stop
delivery until one of the following occurs:
(1) Receipt of the goods by the lessee;
(2) Acknowledgment to the lessee by any bailee of the goods, except a carrier, that
the bailee holds the goods for the lessee;
(3) Such an acknowledgment to the lessee by a carrier via reshipment or as warehouse.
(C)(1) To stop delivery, a lessor shall so notify as to enable the bailee by reasonable
diligence to prevent delivery of the goods.
(2) After notification, the bailee shall hold and deliver the goods according to the
directions of the lessor, but the lessor is liable to the bailee for any ensuing charges
(3) A carrier who has issued a nonnegotiable bill of lading is not obliged to obey
a notification to stop that is received from a person other than the consignor.
