Incoterms® 2020 Rules Seminar
Half-Day Session — 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Certificate Issued Upon Completion.
If your company is relying on the trade term FOB for all your international shipments, you may be in for a few surprises. FOB has a much different meaning in international trade than it does for domestic orders. Understanding the common set of international trade terms—Incoterms® 2020 rules—will ensure that you are speaking the same language as your international customers and vendors and protect your company against unanticipated expenses and liability.
This half-day seminar evaluates each of the Incoterms® 2020 trade terms and the definitions and rules for each so you can decide which term or terms will work best for your company. The instructor will use case studies and exercises to help define the most appropriate terms to use and provide an overview of the differences between Incoterms® 2020 and more traditional domestic terms of sale.
If you take this seminar, you will learn:
- The seller's and buyer's responsibilities and obligations for all 11 Incoterms® 2020 trade terms.
- How to determine which term or terms is best for your company's transactions.
- How to avoid risk of loss.
- Where risk of loss transfers from seller to the buyer for each of the terms.
- Security-related requirements.
- The differences between the 2010 and 2020 Incoterms rules.
- Terms for any mode.
- About court cases interpreting Incoterms rules.
