The Incoterm for the shipping method should be included in a commercial agreement or contract during the ordering process. In the event of a dispute, the contract can be consulted in order to determine which party is responsible and to find a solution. Therefore, any agreement should be carefully considered by both parties before approving the terms. Although incoterms were introduced as rules for international trade, they can also be used for national agreements. For example, you can add to the agreement the “entalée” rule, which holds the seller responsible not only for loading the cargo on board, but also for proper storage. If you see the three letters CNF together, the acronym in terms of shipping stands for “Cost Net Freight”. It is a shipping contract in which the seller pays for the delivery of the item to the port closest to the buyer, but does not include insurance costs. Therefore, the buyer must pay the insurance from his place of origin to his final destination. If you see CIF, it`s like CNF, but requires the seller to take out insurance for sending the item to the port of destination. 2) I don`t think this is an option with Trade Assurance, since for TA orders, shipping is one of them, so the EXW order doesn`t work there. I asked that this be changed to EXW. Instead, they changed the contract to CIF. Can I continue with CIF or will I have problems with the use of these terms? You want to get a FOB price from your supplier AND work with a transport company that takes care of the shipping process, customs clearance and delivery of goods to your address.
I`ve been following my show and it`s in Britain, so I`m not sure I need a little more. The entire emission weighs 13.3 kg. What would be a better option in the future? Especially if the weight is likely to double or triple? I`m looking for something that lets me know the extra charges in advance and won`t suddenly bring up any extra charges. The order was released and there was no payment for me, which I found strange. Everything went well and it was super simple. Hello Andrew, thank you for the information I wanted to ask what is the best option for me, since this is the first time I do international trade and I am super confused. I buy alibaba`s 3D lamp base and they give me $1.2 per FOB unit. My order will be a total of 2 boxes (30cmX30cmX30cm) and about 40-50kg. I command from Shenzhen Port to Dubai Port Jabal Ali.
I think my question is, is FOB the best option for me? and about how much I`m going to cost myself for shipping. (without assistance) it is also preferable that the shipment is done by boat or plane. tnx and sorry for the bad English You might ask for the EXW price, BUT this means that you will pay more export fees to China to your supplier. It is therefore preferable for the supplier to send goods to the port and then be taken care of by the carrier from there. Your blog is great, it really helps us get started with our new business! Any thoughts or advice on this subject would be welcome, our window of opportunity to clarify this point is narrow, no later than Thursday. . You seem to be giving some extremely useful advice, so I`m wondering if you could give me some advice with an import issue that I think refers to this thread. The cif price means – cost, insurance and freight.
You are always responsible for taxes and customs duties, so you pay them. I am importing a small Chinese first order worth £750.00. The supplier ships the goods door-to-door via FEDEX (this is included in the shipping costs). However, there are no business conditions stated on the invoice, for example.B. FOB CIF or CNF, with the exception of our uk address.. . . .
