What are In­coterms® rules?

Re­vised by the In­ter­na­tional Cham­ber of Com­merce every 10 years, In­coterms® are an es­sen­tial part of the lan­guage used by buy­ers and sell­ers in in­ter­na­tional trade. These trade terms are in­cor­po­rated in con­tracts for the sale of goods world­wide and de­fine the costs, risks and obli­ga­tions in in­ter­na­tional trade trans­ac­tions to im­porters, ex­porters, trans­porters, cus­toms bro­kers, lawyers and stu­dents of in­ter­na­tional trade. An im­proper use of In­coterms® can be costly to busi­nesses.

Com­pa­nies should con­sider par­tic­i­pat­ing in this train­ing in 2020 if they are from the fol­low­ing in­dus­tries:

• Im­port / Ex­port

• Le­gal

• In­ter­na­tional Trade Con­sult­ing
