Incoterms® are defined by International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) to facilitate trade across the globe. They are internationally accepted standards which define the responsibilities of sellers and buyers for delivery of goods under sales contracts. Incoterms® are used to specify how the costs and risks associated with the cross-border transportation of goods are borne between the buyer and seller.
