Shipping terms and definitions:
Terms identify the party responsible for the
payment of freight and are
usually expressed as: prepaid or collect with the following nuances:
a stated location and collect beyond or third party or pre-pay and add.
While there are other subtleties, these examples
Prepaid means that the shipper owns the freight payment responsibility.
Collect means that the consignee owns the freight payment responsibility.
Prepaid/Collect Beyond means that the shipper or consignor owns the prepayment portion with the balance of the freight charge being the responsibility of the consignee.
Third Party establishes that a party neither the consignor nor consignee owns the payment processing function. The legal payment obligation may or may not belong to the third party and the assignment of the legal responsibility is determined from the parties identified on the Bill of Lading Contract. Simply put, unless the payment party is a party to the Bill of Lading contract, they have no legal obligation for payment. “Third Party” is typically invoked when there is an outsourced payment service to handle the freight payment function.
and Add typically means that the shipper
advances the freight
charges to the carrier and then bills the beneficial owner of the
freight for an
amount approximating or equal to the actual freight charges.
of Sale/Purchase identify
the passage of title and are typically expressed as “FOB, stated point
place”. In their
most simple and
usual expression they appear as FOB Origin or FOB destination.
FOB Origin means that title to the merchandise passes at time and place of pick-up.
FOB Destination means that title to the merchandise passes at time and place of delivery.
Simply stated, Free On Board (FOB) is a shipping term that indicates that when a company purchases supplies, the supplier is responsible for the supplies, and therefore pays the cost of shipping and insurance, until the goods reach a specified location.
