FCA – Free Carrier

In this term of sale the seller has to arrange delivery to the carrier at a named point. The  risk  then  passes  to  the  buyer  at  this  point  and  he  is  responsible  for  the arrangement and payment insurance and carriage. This term of sale may be used to cover any single mode of transport or multimodal transport. When using this term it is important to understand the particular responsibilities for buyer and seller in respect of the different types of transport, which may be used. These are set out in detail in Incoterms 2000.
