Incoterms

Welcome back, thanks for visiting Dunlap International, Inc.

The number of Incoterms 2000 rules has been reduced from 13 to 11.  DEQ has been replaced by Delivered at Terminal (DAT named terminal at port or place of destination, unloaded from arriving means of transport).  This is the only Incoterms® rule that specifically tasks the seller with unloading the cargo.  “Terminal” includes any place such as a quay, warehouse, container yard or road, and rail or air cargo terminal.  DAF, DES, and DDU have been replaced by Delivered at Place (DAP named place of destination, at the disposal of the buyer on the arriving means of transport, ready for unloading at the named place of destination).  Sellers are warned to define clearly in their contracts the specific point of delivery (complete address of terminal or place) to avoid confusion over division of the port handling charges.  Additional expenses incurred beyond that delivery point are not recoverable from the buyers unless otherwise agreed to in the contract.
