Detailed presentation of the Incoterms 2000

We begin this section while showing you the apportionment of the Incoterms 2000 according to the mode of chosen transportation
For reminder, as mode of transportation, we have:

  • For the continental transportation, one can use:
    • Rail
    • Air
    • Sea
  • For the intercontinental transportation, the choice cuts down to:
    • Sea
    • Air

N.B: Nevertheless recall that some techniques permit the use of several modes of transportation without real break of charge,
that is without discharge and reloading of commodity. It is about for example of :

  • combined transports rail-road (technique of the "mobile cash box" or the" rolling road");
  • fluvio-maritime combined transports (lighter-aboard-ships, cargo-liners) ;
  • combined transports road-sea (technique of the ferry-boat, roll-on-roll-ofves (Ro-Ro));
  • combined transports iron-sea (ships door-wagons).

However most of them remain limited use.
This chart presents you, the correspondence between every Incoterm 2000 and the different modes of transportation ( in the continuation of the price, we retailed every Incoterm 2000 according to every fashion of chosen transportation. )
