SHIPPING INFORMATION

EcoRad aligns itself with Incoterm® Ex Works (EXW) or Free Carrier (FCA) but will also do FOB if this is required by the client.

WHAT DOES “INCOTERMS®” STAND FOR?
“Incoterms®” is an acronym standing for international commercial terms. “Incoterms®” is a trademark of the International Chamber of Commerce, registered in several countries.

WHAT ARE INCOTERMS®?
The Incoterms® rules are the world’s essential terms of trade for the sale of goods. Whether you are filing a purchase order, packaging and labeling a shipment for freight transport, or preparing a certificate of origin at a port, the Incoterms® rules are there to guide you. The Incoterms® rules provide specific guidance to individuals participating in the import and export of global trade on a daily basis.
WHAT ARE EXW SHIPPING TERMS?
EXW (Ex Works) is an Incoterm that only requires the seller to make the goods available for pickup by the buyer at the seller’s premises or another named location.
WHAT ARE FCA SHIPPING TERMS?
The buyer is responsible for export clearance, loading the goods at the named location and bearing all cost and risk to the destination. EXW can be used for all modes of transport, including LCL (Less than Container Load), FCL, and air. It is ultimately up to the buyer and the seller to agree on each party’s responsibility of cost and risk before the shipment begins. (From: Flexport website, sourced July 2021) When importing on Ex Works terms the buyer is responsible for the whole shipment from door to door. All costs and liabilities are with the buyer.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF EX WORKS TERMS?
• All costs are outlined from the outset
• Fairly rare to incur extra costs
• Supplier can’t add any margin to the shipping
WHAT ARE FCA SHIPPING TERMS?
FCA stands for “Free Carrier”. This means your supplier will deliver the goods to our warehouse at their port of loading. They may also arrange customs clearance. In reality, when using these terms there can be some uncertainty in reality as Chinese suppliers often just mean that they’ll send the goods to the port and the rest is for you to deal with.
Shippo.co.uk would suggest that you assume these terms are the same as EXW terms (mentioned above) but with the supplier effectively paying the collection fee. Let us know If you wish to explore exactly what your supplier means when they offer you one of the below:
• We’ll deliver the goods to a local port warehouse.
• Our terms are FCA.
• We’ll pay the trucking to the port… etc.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF FCA TERMS?
• Cost effective Incoterm because most of the expenses are charged to the buyer.
• No need to panic for customs clearance and legal documentation.
• Everything is according to the contract of carriage. • All the charges, risk factors,and damages divide into both parties.
• Your cargo can be tracked by this term accurately. (From: Bansar China, sourced July 2021)
WHAT ARE FOB SHIPPING TERMS?
Using FOB shipping terms means the costs, risks and responsibilities are split fairly equally between the buyer and the seller of goods. On FOB terms your supplier is responsible for paying all the costs involved with your shipment until the goods are on a vessel at their outbound port.
FOB Shanghai, for example, would mean that your supplier is responsible for goods until they’re loaded on the vessel at Shanghai. After this point, the responsibility then shifts to you.
• Manage your costs without hidden extras throughout the process
• Your supplier should know the export documents they need for their products
• Cost sellers work to FOB terms as standard (From: Shippo website, sourced July 2021)

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF FOB TERMS?
• Manage your costs without hidden extras throughout the process
• Your supplier should know the export documents they need for their products
• Most sellers work to FOB terms as standard
WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW THIS?
• If you are regularly involved in international trade, you need to understand
the risks
• and responsibilities for each of the Incoterms®️ 2020 rules, not just pick the
term which
• you always use. Start by getting a copy of ICC’s Incoterms® 2020 Rules
