|French term or phrase: franco quai|
|"Les ventes realisees en execution de cette commande peuvent etre: Depart, Franco quai avec ou sans remise d'enlevement."|
Context is logistics - ordering.
Having problems with Franco quai.
|franco quai / - long de bord / - le long du navire (FLB) = free alongside ship (FAS)|
“franco quai” is a synonym for “franco long du bord/le long du navire” (FLB) and translates as “free alongside ship” (FAS). It is a standard INCO term, International Chamber of Commerce, World Business Organisation, “Key Words in International Trade”.
I had connexion probs when working on this one and lost track of whether it's one of the 1990 or 2000 INCO terms.

Note : Not the same as
"franco de bord, - à bord [FOB] = Free on board [FOB]"
"franco quai, - le long du navire, - long du bord [FLB] = Free alongside ship [FAS]"

“Free Alongside Ship" means that the seller fulfils his obligation to deliver when the goods have been placed alongside the vessel on the quay or in lighters at the named port of shipment. This means that the buyer has to bear all costs and risks of loss of or damage to the goods from that moment. The FAS term requires the buyer to clear the goods for export. It should not be used when the buyer cannot carry out directly or indirectly the export formalities.
This term can only be used for sea or inland waterway transport.

Worth noting :
DEQ DELIVERED EX QUAY (…named port of destination)*
FAS FREE ALONGSIDE SHIP (…named port of shipment)*
Can you name some main innovations in Incoterms 2000?
They take account of international traders\' growing reliance on intermodal transport. Increased use of FCA (Free Carrier) prompted ICC to simplify delivery obligations under this term. A further advantage of the new Incoterms is that they clearly allocate the loading and unloading requirements of both buyer and seller.
Two other changes are worth mentioning:
Under FAS (FREE ALONGSIDE SHIP) the seller is required to clear the goods for export. This is a reversal from previous Incoterms versions, which required the buyer to arrange for export clearance.
Under DEQ (DELIVERED EX QUAY) the buyer is required to clear the goods for import and to pay for all formalities, duties, taxes and other charges upon import. This is a reversal from previous Incoterms versions, which required the seller to arrange for import clearance.
