How to distinguish whether sea freight is paid
Prepaid, that is, CNF or CIF price, you need to pay all the ocean freight and specify the shipping company yourself.
In general, FOB is paid on arrival, but there are a few cases where the customer pays us after we have paid. This is a rare case. The prepayment is CNF, CIF, etc. The freight has been included in these quotations, so we arrange the transportation and pay the sea freight by ourselves. But there are also a few customers who designate our freight forwarder.
1. The contract is embodied in the FOB price, that is, you only need to pay for the domestic towing container, THC and customs declaration fees (and the costs incurred under special circumstances, such as customs inspection, etc.). The ocean freight or air freight is borne by the customer, generally specified by the customer Shipping company (or designated freight forwarder, less). The bill of lading is displayed as freight collected;
2. The contract is embodied in CNF (excluding insurance premiums) or CIF (including insurance premiums) prices. You need to pay all the shipping costs and arrange your own shipping company (but there are also cases where the customer specifies a shipping company). The bill of lading is shown as freight prepaid.
