FOB is an abbreviation of ‘Free On Board’, and is a port-to-door shipment. This means that when you trade on FOB terms, your supplier(Seller - Sumac.vn) is responsible for all local charges, which include transport to the port, handling of the cargo, and customs clearance at origin. This also means that you(Buyer) have to find a freight forwarder to take over your shipment and carry out the freight when your goods board the ship (or aircraft) for the your warehouse(buyer warehouse). As soon as your goods are aboard the ship or airplane, the transport responsibility and cost shifts from your supplier(Seller - Sumac.vn) to you(Buyer) as importer.
As mentioned, you(Buyer) are responsible for finding a forwarder to carry out the transportation of your goods, but all local charges in the origin country will be billed directly to your supplier/manufacturer(Seller - Sumac.vn). Your supplier(Seller - Sumac.vn) might try to influence your forwarder choice in order to lower local costs, but keep in mind that the decision is yours alone(Buyer). When buying your products on FOB terms your supplier(Seller - Sumac.vn) will include the local charges (sometimes + a buffer) to your cost, so they do not risk losing money.
