Delivered At Frontier (…named place) (DAF)

(obsolete-Incoterms 2000, this term has been removed from Incoterms 2010) An international trade term of sale in which, for the quoted price, the seller/exporter/manufacturer clears the goods for export and is responsible for making them available to the buyer at the named point and place at the frontier, not unloaded, and not cleared for import.
In the DAF term, naming the precise point, place, and time of availability at the frontier is very important as the buyer must make arrangements to unload and secure the goods in a timely manner. Frontier can mean any frontier including the frontier of export.
The DAF term is valid for any mode of shipment, so long as the final shipment to the named place at the frontier is by land.
