In foreign trade, Incoterms – the “rules of the game”, or terms and conditions of payment and delivery – are particularly important. They consist of 11 terms that clearly set out what obligations the seller and the buyer have when it comes to trading goods abroad, as well as who is responsible for bearing which risks, and until when. This way, the parties involved can avoid any misunderstandings or legal disputes. The term “Incoterms” in fact stands for “International Commercial Terms”.
