Incoterms 2000

Incoterms are a set of the most commonly used terms in international trade transportation. They aim to standardise the terminology used for transportation in international trade and map out the obligations between Importer and Exporter. Incoterms define the method of delivery of the goods, state what charges are included in the Exporter's price and define the responsibilities of the parties involved. Incoterms are published by the International Chamber of Commerce.
