Repairing or keeping in repair.
The making of amends or giving satisfaction to a wronged party.
A compensation paid by a carrier to a shipper that has been overcharged.

Reparation claims are differentiated from overcharge claims in that they refer to an illegal amount being charged as opposed to a legal charge: the overcharge.
