International trade terms

Cost, insurance and transportation (CIF). This is an international shipping agreement, which represents the charges a seller pays to cover the costs, insurance and shipping of a buyer's order while the cargo is in transit. Costs, insurance and freight usually apply only to goods transported by water, sea or ocean. The goods are exported to the port of the buyer mentioned in the contract of sale. Until the goods are delivered to the buyer's port of destination, the seller assumes the cost of any loss or damage to the product. In addition, if the product requires additional customs duties, export documents, or inspections or re-routing, the seller must cover these costs. However, as soon as the goods arrive at the buyer's port of destination, the buyer assumes responsibility for any charges or charges for unloading and delivering the shipment to the final destination. CIF is similar to transport and insurance costs (CIP), but CIF is only used for sea and water transport, while CIP can also be used for road or air transport.

The Free Shipping (FOB) definition determines whether the buyer is responsible for shipping costs and sets out the parties' obligations when trading goods. There are two main types of free freight: FOB Destination, and FOB Shipping Point, with several subcategories in each. FOB is an international trading term in accordance with commercial law and rules Incoterms , published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) for the transport, insurance, unloading and transport of goods from the port of arrival to the final destination.

For the recipient, D2D is a very practical solution, as the shipment is transported exactly where it wants to receive, but you should always check for the accuracy of the wording of the shipping methods. Unlike DDP or DAP, D2D is not part of the Incoterms international ICC (International Chamber of Commerce). Door-to-door shipping does not include the question of who has to pay for customs in international transport. For door-to-door type transfers by individuals, you can trust Europa Cargo to handle the entire shipping process, including customs procedures.

X works (EXW) is an international trade term quite common in commercial transport nowadays.

The term Cost and Freight (CFR) means that the seller must pay the cost and freight in order to transport the goods to that port of destination. The risk of loss or damage to the goods, as well as any additional costs as a result of events after delivery of the goods to the ship, is transferred from the seller to the buyer when the goods pass through the railing at the port of shipment. The term CFR obliges the seller to carry out the transport and delivery of the goods at his own risk. This term can only be used for sea and inland transport.

The Free Parallel Ship (FAS) method is a conventional term used internationally by exporting companies, which stipulates that the seller must arrange for the goods to be delivered to a designated port and next to a specific vessel for easier transport on the waiting ship. .
