Understanding Incoterms 2020 - 30th Run

Incoterms rules are the language of international trade that outlines the responsibilities of sellers and buyers for the delivery of goods under sales contracts. The Incoterms rules are updated every 10 years by the International Chamber of Commerce to keep pace with the global trade landscape. Despite the well-established practice of using the Incoterms rules, many still do not apply them correctly. Applying the wrong Incoterms rules could result in delivery and payment problems, with operational and financial implications to companies.
