Do you know what an Incoterm is and which one you should use for your export? Used in sales contracts worldwide, Incoterms define the risks and responsibilities of a buyer and seller in an international sales contract. 

A new version of Incoterms has been published in September 2019 for implementation in January 2020 and we have arranged for an update course to make the latest information available.  The Incoterms® Rules are an essential business tool for international trade because they define the risk and cost responsibilities of each party when arranging loading/unloading of the goods, delivery, import export clearance and freight contracts.  They may be used in contract negotiations, as a checklist for buyers and sellers and as a framework for international and domestic sales contracts.
