delivered prices
The practice of supplying goods only at a single price (effectively inclusive of transport costs) to customers' premises, irrespective of location. The effect is to discriminate between differently located customers who are supplied at the same price. Delivered pricing can signal the existence of a cartel, as deviations from cartel prices may be easier to detect and police where prices are uniform regardless of delivery costs.
