This fill-in-the-gaps learning addresses the particular responsibilities of seller and buyer under delivery terms FAS and FOB, while avoiding or solving problems that can arise. These terms are not appropriate for cargo shipped in intermodal container by vessel. Rather, they are only for use when the seller is responsible for delivering cargo directly to a vessel that will be chartered or otherwise arranged for by the buyer. These terms are typically encounter when shipping bulk cargo; large quantities of project cargo and construction material; vehicles aboard ro-ro vessels; and/or large items to be shipped on deck.

This module does not have a study assignment per se, and assumes that the user has some existing understanding of the topic. A person with little or no prior understanding of this topic should take a regular GISTnet course covering this topic instead.

Working with FAS and FOB Delivery Terms

Instructions for use of this learning module:

  1. Take the pre-test. Select only responses that you are confident are correct. Do not guess because an incorrect response will cost you points. If you pass this test, your module will close and you can feel confident that you have a basic understanding of the material.
  2. If you do not pass the pre-test, the next step is to take an assessment-for-learning at least twice. The immediate feedback messages will provide the correct responses, with links to read more about what the question addresses. Each time you take an assessment you will gain more knowledge on the subject and reinforce what you have already learned.
  3. Once you feel confident you can correctly answer all questions encountered in the assessments-for-learning, continue on to the assessment-for-record. This can be taken as many times as required to pass. Passing this assessment will complete the module.

Please use "Instafeedback" in your assessment-for-learning and the short form following your assessment-for-record for any questions you have about this topic or concerns about our learning process.
