German term or phrase:Flächenfracht
Ist in der Auftragsbestätigung abweichend von 2.1 frachtfreie Lieferung vereinbart, gilt diese nur bei Bestellungen von mindestens Euro 500,00, jedoch nur für Stückgut- und Warenladungsfracht bzw. Schiffsfracht ohne "Flächenfracht" und Rollgeld für den Empfang.
Explanation: This term has bothered me for a long time. "Surface freight" is not correct because it includes maritime and inland waterway transports in English, i.e., everything that is not airfreight. According to a German logistics expert, "Flächenfracht" includes only road and rail (not water or air) transports.
