Sea and inland waterway transport only
8.FAS Incoterms – Free Alongside Ship (named port of shipment)
This is revised in Incoterms 2010, where now the seller or, more typically, his shipper/freight forwarder, must clear the goods for export.
Note that this is not a multimodal term, but is used for heavy and bulk cargoes.
The seller’s forwarder puts the goods alongside the ship. It that point delivery is made: and thereafter the buyer’s forwarder is responsible for transport and insurance, at the buyer’s risk and cost.
