Frequently Asked Questions


Incoterms are standardized definitions of commonly used shipping and trade terms that cover control of goods and financial responsibilities such as payment of cargo insurance and freight. Incoterms provide traders with a common set of rules outlining each party’s obligations, thus reducing misunderstandings. The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) establishes and publishes the Incoterms. To use the terms correctly, trade practitioners should consult the ICC for the complete, authorized Incoterm definitions.
