Understanding Incoterms ® help importers and exporters to understand their responsibilities and to avoid costly misunderstandings

In-house training course for individuals and teams

International Commercial Terms, more commonly referred to as Incoterms ®, are a set of globally recognised rules published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).  They are covered by International Law and designed to clearly communicate transactions, costs and risk associated with the international transportation of goods.

Our Incoterms ® training provides clarity and guidance of the appropriate rules for your business.

Incoterms® Learning Objectives

In today’s online world, organisations’ international trade continues to grow.   Since your customer can be based anywhere, and your suppliers may be globally dispersed, companies are maintaining international supply chains to support their businesses.

For all transactions regarding the international transportation of goods, companies must ensure they are using the correct documentation, making correct declarations, and using the correct Incoterms® will ensure that your responsibilities are understood and unnecessary costs are avoided.

Understanding each of the 11 Incoterms ®, where responsibility lies, how they are used and the impact of using them incorrectly, is key to ensuring you are managing cost and risk in your international shipments.

These rules are there to guide you, and this training will provide you with an understanding of each of the rules and what they might mean for your business.
