IncoTerms


What are Incoterms?

Incoterms - a.k.a. Trade Terms are key elements of international contracts of sale. They tell the parties what to do with respect to carriage of the goods from buyer to seller, and export & import clearance. They also explain the division of costs and risks between the parties.

The ICC has launched the Incoterms 2020, which is effective from the 1st of January 2020. The Incoterms 2020 does not contain major changes, it is providing more clarity on how to use the Incoterms. The most important difference is in the Incoterms 2020 a new Incoterm DPU (Delivered at Place Unloaded) replaces the Incoterms DAT (Delivered at Terminal). The place of destination can be any place and does not have to be a terminal.

 

What does this all mean? 

 

Here is a simple explanation of all terms:

INCO Terms get updated periodically. The full current list of INCO Terms (2020) is available for purchase on the ICC website. Download Mainfreight's Incoterms 2020 Quick Reference Guide here.

Incoterms 2020 Quick Reference Guide

For All Modes of Transport

EXW - Ex WorksEXW - Ex Works (...named place of delivery)
​The Seller's only responsibility is to make the goods available at the Seller's premises. The Buyer bears full costs and risks of loading and moving the goods from there to destination, including arranging for the export clearance. It is not recommended for international moves.
FCA - Free Carrier (...named place of delivery)
Delivery is made either when goods are (1) loaded on the means of transport provided by the buyer at the seller's stated location; or (2) when placed at the disposal of the buyer's carrier, cleared for export by the seller. From either point of delivery, the Buyer bears the costs and risks of moving goods to destination. The named place/address is required when FCA is used.
CPT - Carriage Paid To (...named place of destination)
​The Seller delivers and transfers risk of loss or damage by handing over goods to the carrier chosen by the seller, cleared for export, who pays for moving the goods to the named place of destination. From the time the goods are transferred to the first carrier, the Buyer bears the risk of loss or damage.
CIP - Carriage And Insurance Paid To (...named place of destination)
​The Seller delivers and transfers risk of loss or damage by handing over goods to the carrier chosen by the seller, cleared for export, who pays for moving the goods to the named place of destination. From the time the goods are transferred to the first carrier, the Buyer bears the risk of loss or damage. The Seller, however, purchases cargo insurance thru to the named place of destination.
DPU - Delivered At Named Place, UnloadedDPU - Delivered At Named Place, Unloaded (named address/place of destination)
​The Seller delivers when the goods, once unloaded from the arriving means of transport, are placed at the Buyer's disposal at place of destination. The Seller bears all risks involved in bringing the goods to and unloading them at the terminal at the named port or place of destination. DPU is the only Incoterms where the Seller must pay for unloading at destination. As seller is responsible for unloading the goods at destination it is highly recommended to be as specific as possible as to the named address/place of destination as all costs thru to unloading are for the seller's account.
DAP - Delivered At Place (...named address/place of destination)
​The Seller delivers when the goods are placed at the Buyer's disposal on the arriving means of transport ready for unloading at the named place of destination or at the agreed point within that place, if any such point is agreed. The Seller bears all risks involved in bringing the goods to the named place. Delivery & Arrival at destination are the same.
DDP - Delivered Duty Paid (...named address/place of destination)
​The Seller delivers the goods to the buyer when the goods are placed at the disposal of the buyer, cleared for import, on the arriving means of transport, ready for unloading, at the named place of destination. The Seller bears all costs and risks of moving the goods to destination, including the payment of Customs duties and taxes. There are limitations to DDP, as Customs formalities in the importing country may not readily allow the seller to be the legal importer of record; DAP or DPU are suggested incoterms in such cases.
