Cost and Freight (CFR) :
Cost and Freight means that the seller delivers when the goods pass the ship's rail in the port of shipment. The seller must on his own risk contract for the carriage of the goods to the port of destination named in the sale contract and pay the freight. This being a shipment contract, the point of delivery is fixed to the ship's rail and the risk of loss or of damage to the goods is transferred from the seller to the buyer at that very point. As will
be seen though the seller bears the cost of carriage to the named destination, the risk is already transferred to the buyer at the port of shipment itself.
