An Incoterm meaning ‘cost, insurance and freight’ (to a named port of destination) used exclusively for maritime transport. The supplier pays the costs and freight to transport the goods to the port of destination and, in addition, arranges and pays for the insurance up to the point when the goods are loaded on the vessel. Risk passes to the buyer from that point onwards. See also Incoterms.
