DAP stands for Delivered at Place. This term is used when a seller pays for the entire delivery from shipment up to the final destination.
The nominated location can be either a warehouse, a container terminal, or another location specified by the buyer. Once the goods arrive at the location, the buyer is responsible for paying any further transportation costs and clearing the goods for import.
DAP shipments allow businesses to send and receive products without having to worry about managing the logistics themselves.
Instead, the supplier takes care of all the details from transportation to customs clearance. This can be a convenient option for businesses that don't have their own shipping department or need to send goods to an international destination.
