The Incoterms® - International Commercial Terms - are recognized worldwide and crucial in international trade. They regulate the rights and obligations of buyer and seller in relation to costs, risk, insurance, loading and unloading, transport documents, customs, taxes, packaging and much more.

In order to inform and train internationally engaged companies, banks, insurance companies and everyone involved in cross-border deliveries, ICC Austria organizes one-day seminars with a focus on the changes and explains how to apply them correctly to your individual busniess environment. Furthermore, the interaction of Incoterms® and other contractual conditions, as well as the best possible coordination with letters of credit, is practiced using real-life examples.


The trainings are designed for people who deal with business transactions in sales & purchasing and/or have to agree on delivery conditions.. This includes freight forwarders, consultants, lawyers, legal experts, and employees of importing and exporting companies. The trainings are held by the experts of ICC Austria or verified speakers with many years of practical experience.
