Frequently asked questions

 

What is an incoterm?

Incoterms establish liabilities and obligations for both the buyer and the seller in the following areas: loading, transportation and delivery of goods, as well as the formalities and fees (insurance) relating to these operations. More precisely, they define the moment when these transfer from one to the other.
