EXW - Ex Works

Places greater obligation on the buyer who is responsible for the delivery of goods from door to door. While the seller needs to ensure freight is available for shipping, beyond collection they have no legal liability for anything that occurs to the goods while in transit.

FCA - Free Carrier

Requires the seller to transport goods from origin to a nominated carrier of the buyer's choice. At such time, costs and associated risks are transferred from the seller to the buyer who is then responsible for onward shipping to destination.

FAS - Free Alongside Ship

Used exclusively for sea freight transport, responsibility is passed to the buyer following delivery of goods alongside a ship.

FOB - Free On Board

The buyer takes over responsibility for the delivery of goods to destination following transport of freight on board a vessel at the port of origin (sea freight only).

CFR - Cost and Freight

It is the seller's responsibility to nominate a freight forwarder and arrange for the transportation of cargo from origin to destination port (sea freight only). Risks transfer to the buyer for insurance cover once the goods are delivered on board a vessel at the port of origin. The buyer is additionally liable for all destination charges.

CIF - Cost Insurance and Freight

Similar to CFR, but the seller is responsible for the insuring of goods during the maritime leg of the voyage. All risks and costs pass to the buyer following delivery of goods at the port of destination.

CPT - Carriage Paid To

While the seller is responsible for freight and clearance to destination, the buyer must cover any costs arising after the goods are delivered to the carrier including loss and damage.

CIP - Carriage and Insurance Paid To

Similar to CPT, but risk of loss and damage to goods during carriage resides with the seller.

DAT - Delivered At Terminal

The seller assumes all risks and costs of transport to destination port or terminal. The buyer must pay all destination charges including relevant duties and taxes, customs clearances and onward delivery.

DAP - Delivered At Place

The seller is responsible for all risks and costs of delivery to the buyer's facility. Import duties and taxes must be paid by the buyer.

DDP - Delivered Duty Paid

This term places minimal obligation on the buyer and greater responsibility on the seller who is liable for all risks and costs up to the destination facility, including import duties and taxes.
