Incoterms 2020

What is incoterms 2020?
Incoterms 2020 is an international standard for delivery terms. Produced to clarify who is responsible for the goods during transport and when the risk and cost are transferred from the seller to the buyer. By referring to these rules, sellers, buyers, exporters and importers can avoid unnecessary and expensive misunderstandings.

Why is it important?
In addition to making it easier for sellers and buyers to understand who bears responsibility and costs, the rules are adapted to be used on the national market to make it easier for customs, authorities and carriers regardless of where in the world the goods/product or the item is going. You simply speak the same language to make it easier for everyone involved, regardless of country.
