There needs to be timely notification in order to have an effective rejection by your customer, the receiver.  While, you as the shipper, may have an obligation to take back the shipment, keep in mind that if it is later determined the rejection was wrongful, your customer could be held liable for the original contract price and incidental expenses, less any resale proceeds received by you.

So is timely notification an important component in achieving an effective rejection?
