Actually with many purchases (your terms have to specifically exclude
this), when it is loaded onto the truck or train, you own it. It does not
even have to arrive to be your problem. However the Feds are nice enough
not to force us at physical inventory time to find out how much inventory
is in transit that we own. And as a result, I have watched train loads of
product shipped between related companies, timed to be on the train during
physical inventory.
