If you are going to send by courier, there may be some benefit in asking your supplier about the “ex works” price compared to FOB.

FOB includes the relevant costs of getting your goods onto the plane, which the supplier would normally pay for. If they are sending by courier, all the costs should be included in the courier fee.

It doesn’t always work, but there could be some scope for the supplier to shave some cost off for you if sending by courier.
