As international trade becomes increasingly more complex, universally used rules are essential to avoid misunderstandings and costly disputes. Regularly incorporated into sales contracts worldwide, Incoterms® rules define, in a set of three-letter trade terms, the risks and responsibilities of buyers and sellers in an international sales contract.
Used by large and small businesses trading across borders all over the world, Incoterms® are applied to the sales of billions of pounds of goods each year and provide businesses with the confidence and certainty to operate in unfamiliar markets and legal jurisdictions, with suppliers and buyers of containerised trade.
ICC's latest revision , Incoterms® 2020, continues a 70 year tradition of reflecting the latest developments in the trading environmental and modern business-to-business practice.
It is an essential set of rules to guide exporters and importers through the crucial aspects of an international sales contract including defining the obligations with respect to arranging and paying for carriage, insurance and duties, as well as responsibilities associated with the delivery of goods.
Incoterms® 2020 includes some very big changes. This is the biggest group of changes to the fundamental principles of International Trade that we have seen for many years. No-one can afford not to understand them. The implications of the changes are enormous and you cannot afford to be left behind.
