DAT (Delivered at Terminal)

What does DAT stand for in logistics?

DAT stands for Delivered at Terminal. This means the seller is responsible for covering all transport costs until after the goods are unloaded at the right terminal. The seller needs to clear goods for export (where applicable). If the seller cannot, for some reasons, unload the goods at the agreed terminal, he should take into consideration shipping under DAP. Costs after the unloading point will be carried by the buyer. Same as with DAP, the seller is responsible for delays and demurrage charges.
