Ex ship

Ex ship contracts are similar to free on board ones, except that the seller is responsible for freight and insurance and does not pay them on behalf of the buyer. The goods are at the seller’s risk until they reach the port of delivery. The goods have left the slings of the ship – if barges are necessary the buyer must provide them. Such contracts are also known as ‘free overside’.
