Transfers and Incoterms Training

A sale cannot take place without a title transfer, which is a change in the possession of goods (from the seller to the buyer). The title of ownership transfers from the seller to the buyer according to the terms agreed in the contract, e,g., once payment has been received.

Incoterms are a set of international-commercial terms that are used in international freight shipment contracts. They are used to define the responsibilities of the buyer and seller relating to the movement of goods internationally, e.g., who pays for shipment and tax.

Training in these concepts is important. It makes it less likely a mistake will be made and more likely that the transfer of goods will be smooth and successful.

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

What two types of transfer occur when dealing with incoterms?
The two types of transfer that take place are transfer of costs and transfer of risk. The responsibilities for the goods transfers to the buyer from the seller. The time of transfer is clearly defined because if there are any issues with the import/export process, responsibility must fall clearly with one or the other.
Why are incoterms used?
Incoterms are used to reduce confusion between buyers and sellers about when responsibility for a shipment passes to the buyer. As they are internationally recognised, they are designed to be understood by everyone in the import and export business. Their use makes it clear what is the buyer’s responsibility, and what is the seller’s responsibility.
What is a title transfer?
A title transfer refers to the moment in time, and in the export/import process, that a shipment and the goods within it passes from the buyer to the seller. Depending on the nature of the transaction and the agreement drawn up beforehand, this can happen at any point from leaving the seller’s premises to arrival at the client’s.
