Delivered at Place (DAP)

What does DAP stand for in logistics?

DAP stands for Delivered at Place. This means that the seller is responsible for the costs of packing goods as well as for arranging the delivery of the cargo at a place agreed with the buyer. The seller needs to ensure the goods will arrive safely at the final destination or otherwise, he will need to support costs for any sort of delays. The buyer is responsible for local taxes or import duties.

In essence, DAP is the same as Delivered Duty Paid (DDP). The delivery rules benefit the buyers due to the bearing of risks and delivery responsibility that lie with seller. In turn, the buyers no longer have to incur any cost upon goods receipt.

This is the transportation of goods to the required destination provided by the buyer or shipper.
