"Freight Collect" is a term used in the freight moving business that means that the freight will be paid by the person receiving the freight. The alternative would be "Freight Prepaid." If you order something, and you pay the shipper for shipping, then they will pay the charges the trucking company charges to move the item. This amount could be more or less than what you give the shipper. If you tell the shipper that you will pay the cost when it arrives, then they will ship it "freight collect," meaning the trucking company will need a check payable to them when they deliver your item. If you have an account with a certain trucking company, then you can request that the shipper use that company so that you maybe billed. It will still be "Freight Collect," but will be automatically billed to you by the company that you use.
