This course is suitable for all levels and for importers and exporters as well as their service providers. It runs over 3 consecutive Saturdays from 09h00 to 13h00 and addresses the role of commercial terms in the delivery of cargo.
Proactively, we look at the transfer of Risk, Cost and Tasks in the delivery process and how Incoterms Rules work in the 3 defined areas of International Trade; inside the country of export, inside the country of import, and between these two points or places.
However, when “bad luck” happens along the delivery route, we need to also know how commercial terms work in identifying to whom such an incident may belong; the seller or the buyer.
