Land or "ground" shipping may be by train or by truck (International English: lorry). In atmosphere and ocean deliveries, surface transportation is required to make the cargo from the host to origin into the airport or seaport then to its location because it is not necessarily possible to establish a production center near ports due to minimal coastlines of countries. Ground transport is normally more affordable than air, but more expensive than ocean particularly in establishing countries like India and Pakistan, in which inland infrastructure is certainly not efficient.

Shipment of cargo by trucks, directly through the shipper's place to the destination, is recognized as a door to door shipment and much more officially as multimodal transport. Vehicles and trains make deliveries to ocean and air harbors in which cargo is moved in bulk.

  • Free on board (FOB)–the exporter delivers items at specified area (as well as on board the vessel). Costs paid because of the exporter include load, lash, secure and stow the cargo, including securing cargo never to move around in the vessels hold, protecting the cargo from experience of the double-bottom to prevent falling, and defense against harm from condensation. As an example, "FOB JNPT" implies that the exporter provides the goods towards Jawahar lal Nehru Port, India, and covers the cargo to be loaded and secured in the ship. This term also declares that in which the obligation of shipper ends and that of buyer starts. The exporter is bound to provide the goods at his expense and expense. In cases like this, the freight also expenditures for outgoing traffic are borne because of the importer.

Like, C&F Los Angeles (the exporter pays the sea shipping/air freight expenses to la). most of the governing bodies ask their exporters to trade on these terms to advertise their particular exports worldwide particularly India and Asia. A number of the shipping companies (such as UPS, DHL, FedEx) offer guarantees on their distribution times. They are generally GSR guarantees or "guaranteed service refunds"; if parcels are not delivered promptly, the customer is entitled to a refund.
  • Carriage, insurance and freight (now known in the US as "cost, insurance and freight")(CIF): Insurance and freight are all paid by the exporter to the specified location. As an example, at CIF l . a ., the exporter will pay the sea shipping/air cargo expenses to l . a . like the insurance of cargo.

  • The expression "best means" typically shows that the shipper will pick the service who offers the least expensive price (toward shipper) when it comes to cargo. Oftentimes, but various other aspects, like better insurance or quicker transportation time can cause the shipper to choose an option aside from the cheapest bidder.
