INCOTERMS provide a set of international rules, published by the international Chamber of Commerce (ICC), for the interpretation of the most commonly used trade terms. INCOTERMS help to clarify responsibilities between buyer and seller engaging in foreign trade. The Sales Contract should Incorporate INCOTERMS 2000, in addition to further defining the exact terms of sales agreement.

INCOTERMS 2000 (the most recent version), groups terms into four different categories:

- Group E - Departure: goods available to buyer on seller's own premises.

- Group F - Main Carriage Unpaid: seller to deliver goods to a carrier appointed by the buyer.

- Group C - Main Carriage Paid: seller contracts for carriage, but does not assume risk of loss of or damage to goods or additional cost due to events occurring after shipment and dispatch.

- Group D - Arrival: seller has to bear all costs and risks needed to bring the goods to the country of destination
