The Freight On Board (FOB) profile
list allows you to establish a set of custom rules indicating at what
point in the shipping process that you have fulfilled your obligations
as a seller.
This is particularly important for international shipments involving large crates of goods. If the buyer has indicated a vessel upon which they want their goods delivered, then the seller's obligation typically ends when the product has passed over the ship's rails.
Setting up custom FOB can help you keep track of exactly when the risk of loss shifts from the seller to the buyer during transit. To add one, just choose Save & New from the FOB tab's Save button. Then enter a name, and specify whether you'd like the current FOB to be active (accessible within transactions from the FOB drop-down list).
