Shipping Method

Know the shipping methods for your choice

EXW (Ex Works)

In the EXW Incoterm, the seller’s responsibility is minimal, since he makes the merchandise available to the buyer in his own establishment or at an agreed place. The buyer assumes all risks and costs from that point on.

FOB (Free On Board)

Under the FOB Incoterm, the seller must deliver the goods on board the vessel at the designated port of shipment. From that moment on, the responsibility and risks are transferred to the buyer, who is responsible for all costs and procedures related to maritime transport, loading and export customs procedures.

FCA (Free Carrier)

Under the FCA Incoterm, the seller fulfills his responsibility by delivering the goods to the designated carrier or to another person indicated by the buyer at the agreed place, either in the country of origin itself or at an agreed point on the border.

From that moment on, the buyer assumes the costs and risks, including those related to main transportation, loading and export customs procedures.

FAS (Free Alongside Ship)

In this Incoterm, the seller is responsible for delivering the goods alongside the ship at the designated port of shipment. From that moment on, the buyer assumes all costs and risks, including those related to maritime transport, loading and export customs procedures.

CFR (Cost and Freight)

In the CFR Incoterm, the seller is responsible for the cost and freight necessary to bring the merchandise to the agreed port of destination. From that point on, the buyer assumes the risks and additional costs.

CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight)

In the CIF Incoterm, the seller is responsible for covering the cost, insurance and freight necessary to bring the merchandise to the agreed port of destination. From that point on, the buyer assumes the risks and additional costs.

DAP (Deliver at Place)

Under the DAP Incoterm, the seller is responsible for delivering the goods to the agreed destination, whether a port, airport, warehouse or other specific location. The seller is responsible for the costs and risks associated with transporting the merchandise to that location. Once delivered, the buyer assumes additional costs and risks, including customs import procedures.

DDP (Delivered Duty Paid)

Under this rule, the seller assumes maximum responsibility. The seller is responsible for delivering the goods to the agreed destination, assuming all costs and risks, including customs duties and taxes, for both export and import. The buyer has no obligation to play any role in the customs process.
