Hi David James, FOB means Free on Board, it didn't include the freight, you need to ask the supplier to offer you a C&F(CNF) or CIF price, C&F include product cost and freight, CIF: product cost, Insurance and Freight, you can choose them when the supplier have provided you the relating offer.

Finding suppliers is not easy, however finding good suppliers is really difficult. The same situation is with buyers:  If you know the market, you know that it is really difficult to find good buyers? why? companies importing from China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Korea and so on have REALLY good choice - if we will send some inquiries, we receive 100+ sometimes 500+ suppliers during 2 days, THAT IS WHY we need to be more competitive and know: How to export to Europe and other countries. The same situation is with BUYERS, buyers want to invest and find good suppliers so that select the best companies and should be really the best for their businesses, why? Because they have really good choice in order to find such: Reliable suppliers from China, India and Brazil or other countries. If you would like to know how to find good suppliers, you could read many articles or try to find good consultant etc. Finding suppliers is not easy, but you can FIND really good and selected suppliers. Remember: knowledge is first.

FOB = Free on Board. the supplier deliver the good on the board, and the buyer needs to pay for the freight and are responsible for the rest of risk during the shipping. You may ask supplier to offer CIF ( cost, Insurance and Freight). the supplier are responsible for the risk until the cargo is reached the ports as your request. Different offer has different price and responsibility. hope that it can help you. thanks.

FOB don't include freight to USA. FOB price = cost + local freight from factory to loading port You'ld better get the packaging information( weight, volum) and inquiry some forwarders. I advise you to appoint one forwarder to take over the goods on loading port since you still need arrange one forwarder to help pick up the goods and handle custom clearance at destination port in USA. In this way, you may save some money.
