Export Documentation & Incoterms Seminar

Export Documentation & Incoterms Seminar

Export Documentation & Incoterms Seminar

Updated every 10 years, ICC Incoterms 2020 rules define the responsibilities of buyers and sellers for the delivery of goods under sales contracts. They are the authoritative rules for determining how costs and risks are allocated to the parties.

Incoterms rules are all about the delivery, which is reflective of the key changes in Incoterms® 2020. There are very few court cases on the interpretation of Incoterms rules, rather, the problems that normally arise are due to the wrong use of an Incoterms rule. Buyers and sellers using the right Incoterms rules are often set up well, therefore it’s essential for businesses to fully understand the risks and delivery associated with each incoterms rule.
