The Incoterms® Rules are an essential business tool for export import because they define the risk and cost responsibilities of each party when arranging loading/unloading of the goods, delivery, import export clearance and freight contracts. They may be used in contract negotiations, as a checklist for buyers and sellers and as a framework for international and domestic sales contracts.Since the last revision in 2000, there have been fundamental changes in global import export practice and procedures. Cargo security considerations, revised insurance clauses and the continuing evolution of transport infrastructure have modified the supply chain obligations of each party and the necessity of providing specific information at the appropriate time.
