Explanation:
Schäfer, Wirtschaftsenglisch, gives:

And here's a list of the Incoterms SAP uses:

CFR Kosten und Fracht
CIF Kosten, Versicherung und Fracht
CIP Frachtfrei versichert
CPT Frachtfrei
DAF Geliefert Grenze
DDP Geliefert verzollt
DDU Geliefert unverzollt
DEQ Geliefert ab Kai (verzollt)
DES Geliefert ab Schiff
EXW Ab Werk
FAS Frei Längsseite Seeschiff
FCA Frei Frachtführer
FOB Frei an Bord

Here's yet another abbreviation: HTH!

Explanation:
Frei Schiff is correct but the Incoterms - trademark established by the International Chamber of Commerce- are usually not translated in international trade.

Go to www.icc-deutschland.de and learn all there is to know about Incoterms etc
