 Incoterms® 2020 Rules

Incoterms® 2020 will be launched by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in October 2019 and they will came into effect on 1 January 2020.

This course will help businesses to be able to adapt, prepare and train their employees who will be directly linked with using these new commercial terms.

An understanding of Incoterms®2020 will continue to be a fundamental component of international trade and this course will give delegates a detailed view of the new terms, focusing on the commercial implications of each term - risks and costs. This feeds through into how a simple misunderstanding could affect profits in the company and gives them the ability to respond to any future international enquiry with confidence.

This is the course for people who want a detailed and focused commercial view of the Incoterms® 2020 standards. Attendees will also receive a copy of ICC Incoterms® 2020 Book.

Workshop programme in detail:

  • History and background - their development over the last 80 years
  • The New vs the Old - what are the changes between Incoterms® 2010 and  the new Incoterms® 2020 ?
  • Key definitions - is "delivery point" the same as "destination"?
  • What do Incoterms® 2020 cover?
  • What Incoterms® 2020 don't cover?
  • Cost and risk - an interactive in-depth view of the responsibilities, risks and costs for the buyer and seller
  • Considerations of possible effects that Brexit could bring on current imports and exports using Incoterms® 2020
  • Choosing the best Incoterms® 2020 for each mode of transport
  • Potential pitfalls to avoid when using Incoterms® 2020 

Course outcome:

At the end of the course, delegates will have sufficient knowledge to be able to understand the responsibilities and additional costs of international trade with absolute confidence and so optimise the profitability of any international sales agreement.
