Incoterms are standardized trade terms used in international transactions to define the rights and responsibilities of buyers and sellers. They establish the obligations related to the delivery of goods, the transfer of risks, and the distribution of costs between the parties involved. Incoterms specify important details, such as the point at which the risk and costs transfer from the seller to the buyer, the responsibility for transportation, insurance, customs clearance, and other relevant aspects of the transaction.
