The term "D" - Incoterms


"D" - The terms are different in nature from the "C" - terms, since in accordance with the "D" - terms the seller is responsible for the arrival of the goods at the agreed place or point of destination at the border or in the country of import. The seller must bear all risks and costs of delivering the goods to that place.
Thus, "D" - terms signify arrival contracts, while the "C" - terms speak of shipment contracts.
In accordance with the "D" - the terms, except for DDP, The seller is not obliged to deliver the goods cleared for import in the country of destination.
Traditionally, in accordance with the term DEQ the seller was obliged to clear the goods, because the goods had to be landed on the quay and thus were brought into the country of import.

Thus, the change in term DEQ was made for the same reason that the variation in the term FAS, Which was mentioned earlier.

In these circumstances it would be preferable to use the term CPT indicating the border. On the other hand, if the parties intend that the seller should bear the risk during transport, you should use the term DAF indicating the border.
