Incoterms(R) 2010 Training is Important to Your Bottom Line
On January 1, 2011, Incoterms ® 2010 will replace Incoterms® 2000. Unz & Co.'s one-day seminar addresses the significant changes and how they affect your contracts.
- (1888PressRelease) August 28, 2010 - On January 1, 2011, International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)'s Incoterms ® 2010 will replace Incoterms® 2000 as the new authoritative text for determining how costs, risks, and other responsibilities are allocated to the two parties (seller/buyer) in a sales transaction.
To help the international trade industry become comfortable with the upcoming release of the rules, Unz & Co. has added a new training program to their roster. The Incoterms® 2010 one-day seminar will address the first significant changes to be made in a decade.
These changes involve updates and consolidations of the former rules. Special consideration has been paid to security-related shipment clearance and use of the rules for domestic transactions.
The new classification system will divide the eleven Incoterms® into two groups:
ALL MODES OF TRANSPORTATION:
* EXW: Ex Works
* FCA: Free Carrier
* CPT: Carriage Paid To
* CIP: Carriage and Insurance Paid
* DAT: Delivered At Terminal
* DAP: Delivered At Place
* DDP: Delivered Duty Paid
SEA AND INLAND WATERWAY TRANSPORTATION:
* FAS: Free Alongside Ship
* FOB: Free On Board
* CFR: Cost and Freight
* CIF: Cost, Insurance, and Freight
Because of the revisions, Incoterms® currently used for a contract may no longer be appropriate. "Being aware of the newly changed terms as soon as possible is vital to a business' success," said Daniel Scott, president of Unz & Co. "In this new global economy, every penny counts. And you want to make sure that you negotiate the best deal possible."
Incoterms® 2010 training will be held in major U.S. cities including New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Diego. Dates and additional locations around the country can be found on Unz & Co.'s website: http://www.unzco.com/training/incoterms2010.htm. Cost per seminar (includes take-home materials and the official ICC rulebook) is $375. To register, contact Unz & Co.'s customer service department at 1-800-631-3098 or sign up online at http://unzco.com. Preorders of ICC's Incoterms® 2010 book are also available. Estimated ship date is September 15, 2010.
