What is cost and freight (CFR)?

Cost and freight puts the costs associated with transporting goods to the destination port on the supplier. This includes any fees associated with export, in addition to the cost of sending freight to the port of destination. Once the delivery is unloaded in the receiving country, responsibility of risk is transferred to the buyer. CFR includes neither insurance nor the transportation costs associated with getting the delivery to the buyer’s destination. Also excluded are customs duties.
