Updated Incoterms 2020 version available by end of October, 2019.
This is a short course introducing the role and importance of trade terms (Incoterms) to specify respective seller and buyer responsibilities in an export-import transaction. This course also highlights key changes in Incoterms 2010 for those already aware of Incoterms.
Important: This is not "nuts and bolts" training for those (sellers or buyers) who will be negotiating international transactions, nor for service providers such as international forwarders and customs brokers, who must interpret and act on trade terms for specific transactions and/or advise others. We recommend GISTnet courses C1 or C1.3 for more in depth training in Incoterms.
