DAT is a delivery method where the seller pays for the transport of goods to a terminal and the buyer pays for the transport of goods from the terminal. As a delivery method, it can be beneficial for both parties as it allows them some flexibility in their operational costs.
DAT can also help to speed up the delivery process as it eliminates the need for the seller to transport the goods to their own facility.
The terminal can be any place. For example, a warehouse, container yard, or transport hub.
