Free-On-Board (FOB) is a common condition for delivery, associated with maritime transport, as defined in the Incoterms legal code. The terms and conditions of delivery are part of the purchase agreement that regulates how costs and liabilities respecting the transport between seller and buyer should be distributed. It touches upon questions about who will bear the costs associated with any transport damage and who will take out transport insurance.
By collecting data during transportation and combining the measurement results with other tests, such as the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) and Site Acceptance Test (SAT), you can decide if further inspections are needed, on-site or in the factory, as well as review potential areas for improvement by identifying the best method of transport, routes, packaging and storage alternatives. The Cargolog® Impact & Shock Recorder is a long-term and reusable product that gives rapid ROI.
