Events » Understanding Incoterms® 2020 and U.S. Export Declarations

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has historically revised and refreshed the Incoterms® rules every ten years.  Learn what changes come with the new Incoterms® 2020 version. 

Incoterms® remain an essential element in defining terms of trade when conducting international business transactions.  Incoterms® 2020 is specifically designed to define freight terms and cost obligations unique to ocean, air, and intermodal transportation common to international shipping. Incoterms® 2020 also defines the risk of loss transfer and export/import clearance obligations between sellers and buyers with the goal of eliminating the risk of costly misunderstandings between the parties to an international transaction.
