Incoterms Explained (finally!)

Ryan Aggergaard, Counsel

   Thanks to our webinar Sponsor!

Incoterms are common features of many modern sales agreements. Terms like Ex Works (EXW) and Free on Board (FOB) appear regularly in agreements between buyers and sellers of aircraft parts. Ryan Aggregaard explains (finally!), "But what do these terms mean? Are you shipping by maritime vessel? If not, FOB isn’t for you. Is your supplier overseas? Did you know EXW makes YOU responsible for everything after the goods hit the supplier’s loading dock, including export licenses for which you might not even be able to apply? When does risk of loss transfer? Who it responsible for insurance, duties, fees, compliance?" Incoterms have these answers, if you understand them. In this webinar discusses what each Incoterm does for both buyer and seller, how the terms function within a contract and the law, the benefits and drawbacks of each term, and considerations in negotiating shipping terms from both buyer and seller perspectives to make sure you don’t get left high and dry.
