A contract on fob terms involved delivery upon shipment, for every relevant sense under art 5(1)(b) of Council Regulation (EC) 44-2001. The fact that the buyer would not in practice inspect the goods until after their arrival in Cyprus counted for nothing. It was commonplace in international sales. The agreement for payment 90 days after arrival was no more than a relaxed payment regime with no significance in relation to the place of delivery.
