Free Alongside Ship

Free Alongside Ship is a term used for the delivery of goods. It means that the seller is liable for all risks and changes until the goods are delivered to a port and placed alongside the vessel that will be used for transport. The title of the goods passes to the buyer when the seller has secured a clean dock or ship’s receipt.

  • This type of delivery is often used for large consignments of perishable goods.
  • Using Free Alongside Ship allows buyers and sellers to agree on a price for the goods, without having to worry about documentation or other fees that may be incurred during transport.

This term is commonly used in international trade, where different countries’ laws may apply. It is important to note that Free Alongside Ship does not include insurance or shipping costs.
