Incoterms are the standard international trade agreements regarding the transport of goods.  The contract stipulates standard agreements that divide the costs and risks between the seller and the buyer.
From 2011 onwards, the Incoterms 2010 are applicable.


You can agree to the following matters by means of an incoterm:

  • Who is responsible for transport insurances, licenses, authorisations and other formalities?
  • Who provides the transport and up to where?
  • When will the risks and costs of the delivery transfer from the seller to the buyer?
