The delivery of a commodity is an essential part of a contract, because delivery can form a significant expenditure. Therefore it is important this aspect is covered in the contract, so both parties know which aspect of delivery will generate costs for them. There are different methods for determining which party and to which degree is responsible for the transportation of the commodity. These responsibilities are standardized in a number of international transport terms, called Incoterms. By using incoterms, the risk of misunderstandings regarding transport responsibilities can be almost eliminated. Apart from the shipping method and responsibilities, the delivery location will be mentioned in a commodity contract.
