free alongside (FAS)

One of several standard terms of sale for exports and imports. When goods are shipped FAS, the seller's responsibility ends when the merchandise is brought alongside the vessel (e.g., in a barge) or placed on the dock from which it will be loaded onto the vessel. The buyer is responsible for insuring the goods from that point on. See also Cost, insurance, and freight.
