Definitions for "Cost and Freight"
(C & F): The seller quotes a price that includes the cost of transportation to a specific point. The buyer assumes responsibility for loss and damage and pays for the insurance of the shipment.
A shipping term where the seller is responsible for paying freight, but not insurance charges to a destination.
Shipping term included in a contract of sale (abbreviated as CFR or C&F) meaning that the seller agrees to take full responsibility for delivering the goods to the port of loading, clear the goods for export, and arrange and pay for transportation of the goods to the named port of discharge, such costs being included in the price of the goods. Nonetheless, all risk of loss of or damage to the goods, as well as any additional costs due to events occurring after the time the goods have been delivered on board the vessel, is transferred from the seller to the buyer when the goods pass the ship's rail at the port of loading. It is up to the buyer to arrange marine insurance for the ocean voyage and transportation from the port of discharge.
