International Trade Delivery Terms
Advert:
When making imports from China or any other parts of the world, to avoid disputes or any misunderstandings, standard international delivery terms are used when making any agreement. The standard international delivery terms that are used in international trading these days are the INCOTERMS 2000, the same standard terms that our company is also using in its agreements with customers.
Totally the Incoterms 2000 Standard has more than 13 different delivery terms, but on a day to day basis we only use about nine: EXW, FCA, FOB, CFR, CIF, CPT, CIP, DDU, DDP.
Below we will explain the obligations of both seller and buyer for each of these delivery terms, we also have a chart of what buyer needs to cover for you according to each delivery term, and what you need to cover for your self...
