Other important points

  • Documents demanded of the seller:
    • commercial invoice or equivalent computer data; document allowing the purchaser to take delivery of the goods in the border (carriage document or warehouse certificate).
  • Delicate point:
    • the precise determination of the delivery place can be a source of misunderstandings. It can concern the agreed passage place or the border herself. When the countries don't have a common border, it is indispensable that the parts chose one of it for place of delivery. In case of silence to the level of the contract, the bonds are minimal for the salesperson; the place of delivery is located at the border of the export country;
    • when the displacement of the goods is assured by the same carrier, the parts must research an agreement so that one of them subscribes the insurance contract transportation for the totality of the course.
