ICC INCOTERMS 2010
What are Incoterms? (International Commerical Terms) ‐ Trademark of International Chamber of Commerce
Incoterms are a set of universal rules published by the International Chamber of Commerce that define the most commonly used terms of international shipping under sales contracts. The terms are used to define which party (seller or buyer) is responsible for cost of
shipping, liability, insurance obligations, risk assumption, and etc. These terms are protected by the International Chamber of Commerce copyright and therefore have become an industry standard in terms of defining responsibility and obligations when it comes to logistics as they aid in reducing confusion and any disputes that may arise during the shipping process. Incoterms 2020 have already been published by the International Chamber of Commerce and will be put into effect on January 1st, 2020. Once these are released, 2010 terms may still be used to define the shipping terms as long as the respective set of rules is established and agreed upon before proceeding.

BMSB FUMIGATION REQUIREMENTS
If you're shipping LCL or FCL freight, you can determine if your commodity will require fumigation to Australia by using the search tools below. All you need to know is your commodity Tariff Chapter or a description of your goods. If your commodity is Target High Risk, your shipment will need to be fumigated for BMSB. If your commodity is Target Risk, you have the choice to fumigate it or not, but will be subject to a higher chance of inspection upon arrival if chosen not to fumigate. Any other commodities do not require fumigation.
If your shipment will require fumigation, please notify your agent upon booking if you would like us to quote fumigation at origin. Fumigation may be done at destination unless you are moving an open top or flat rack FCL container.
