Sellers appreciate FOB Incoterms as well because once the cargo leaves their factory, they can consider the sale complete.
Disadvantages of Shipping FOB for the Buyer
There are little to no disadvantages to FOB for most buyers. For newer importers or importers who have always purchased under Incoterms where the seller organizes the freight costs, the process can seem more complicated, because there is an added step. However, the significant cost savings and control quickly outweigh this disadvantage.
