Can I use CIF terms under air shipment? Is DDP shipment meant for air shipment only?  Can FOB be used under air shipment? Any wrong to apply CFR under air shipment?  Is EXW only meant for Air transport?


Some of the traders in international trade are confused with the latest International Commercial Terms 2010 with the use of terms of delivery.


According to Inco Terms 2010, shipping terms and their mode of transport are given under:

EX-WORKS    Air and Sea
FCA  Air and Sea
CPT  Air and Sea   
CIP   Air and Sea
DAT  Air and Sea
DAP  Air and Sea
DDP  Air and Sea
FAS   Sea and Inland water
FOB  Sea and Inland water
CFR  Sea and Inland water
CIF  Sea and Inland water

Although Inco Terms 2010 clearly explains the above shipping terms and their mode of transport, some of the traders have been mixing up those terms.

Inco Terms for movement of goods is revised as Incoterms 2020.  The importers and exporters are suggested to use the latest versionClick here to read the contents of Inco Terms 2020.

Detailed articles about Inco Terms of Delivery under export and import of International business  have been mentioned in  separate category – INCO TERMS – in this web site.
