Free Freight - What You Need to Know

Although the term “Free Freight” is often used in the eCommerce world, it is a misnomer. More properly “Free Freight” is “Dock-to-Dock Prepaid Freight”. Additional delivery (sundry) services may be added for additional cost.

Fulfillment of goods purchased online, such as office furniture, is a two-step process. The first step is straight forward.

Customer purchase goods from an online dealer (distributor) who, in turn, purchases from a manufacturer. When the goods are shipped, title of the goods passes from the manufacturer to the dealer to the customer (FOB Origin: Freight On Board). Now, the first step is completed and the second step begins.

Transportation is the second step. In this step, there are three legal entities involved:

  • Consignor (also called the shipper) is the manufacturer
  • Carrier is the shipping or Freight Company
  • Consignee is the customer.

The Consignor creates instructions for and pays the Carrier. The Carrier transports and delivers goods to the Consignee in accordance with the instructions Consignor's. The Consignee is responsible for receiving the goods in accordance with industry best practices which includes:

Although the dealer is not part of this group, the dealer will serve as an agent for both the Consignor and Consignee if there are commercial changes and adjustments to be made. For example, if after goods ship and the customer chooses to add delivery services, the dealer would collect the appropriate fees from the customer and pay the Consignor who will process a change order and pay the Carrier. Likewise, sundry services such as:

  • Delivery delayed by the customer
  • Change of delivery address
  • Re-delivery
  • Delivery appointments
  • Guaranteed date of arrival

... are typically chargable and available at additional fee, which would be collected by the dealer who will pay the Consignor to pay the Carrier. Whenever there are fees involved, the dealer will act as the agent between Consignor and Consignee.

For local logistics issues like time of day delivery, or delivery date preference, customers should contact the carrier directly and work out a mutually agreeable plan.

  • Preferred table shape
  • Room dimensions
  • Entrance door location
  • Visual presentation screen location
  • Chair style
  • Auxiliary furniture
