There are many ways to divide their transport chain;
port-to-door, port-to-port or door-to-port. Free on board (FOB) is one of the most important Incoterm to know if you are importing from abroad.

FOB is a port-to-door transport where the supplier in the exporting country is responsible for all local costs. FOB is the term of delivery that is most used among Swedish transport buyers for imports from Asia.

A disadvantage when buying FOB may be that you do not have full insight. It´s difficult to get full control over the costs that are imposed on the product price in order to cover the costs of transport to the port and the customs clearance, etc. The FOB Incoterm can only be used for sea freight.
