      C&F is one of the simpler shipping terms bandied about in the international community. It is generally only used with water transportation. Basically, it is the sum of the cost of goods and the freight costs for shipping the goods to the destination port.

      Some might be confused by this term because it used to be commonly known as “CNF” (or C&F), with the term outlining two separate and distinctive responsibilities. One responsibility is the “C,” or cost of the goods, and the other responsibility is the “F,” or the freight charges. However, now the term used within the international shipping community is “CFR” (“Cost” and Freight”).

      For C&F, the responsibility rests on the seller’s shoulders to transport the goods from the seller’s property to the destination point. Once the goods reach the destination, delivery is complete. The buyer is solely responsible for paying for insurance door-to-door.

      Basically, the price quoted includes the cost of goods and freight.
