Delivered at Place (DAP)
Can be used for any transport mode, or where there is more than one transport mode.
The seller is responsible for arranging carriage and for delivering the goods, ready for unloading from the arriving conveyance, at the named place. (An important difference from Delivered At Terminal DAT, where the seller is responsible for unloading.)
Free On Board (FOB)
Use of this rule is restricted to goods transported by sea or inland waterway.
In practice, it should be used for situations where the seller has direct access to the vessel for loading, e.g. bulk cargos or non-containerised goods.
For containerised goods, consider "Free Carrier FCA" instead.
