Advance freight

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

Freight paid in advance. A shipper may pay the freight, enabling the ship-owner to endorse the bill of lading with a freight release, and the importer to take immediate delivery. It may be payable even though the ship is lost, provided the voyage was actually commenced.
