Free Alongside (FAS)

Definition

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.
