Shipping conditions

Merinox provides for the shipment and delivery of goods, if desired to your door. This  also holds for any special deliveries. At present Merinox exports to more than 60 countries. As far as the delivery of goods is concerned, Merinox applies the ICC Incoterms®2010. These are international, standard delivery terms prepared by the International Chamber of Commerce. With these delivery terms – briefly summarised – it is possible to arrange who (buyer or seller) arranges the carriage up to where and is responsible for doing so, who (buyer or seller) provides for insurance, permits, authorisations and all other formalities, and when the risk passes from the seller to the buyer.

 

These Incoterms are not the contract of sale you conclude with Merinox. For instance, the Incoterms do not determine the purchase price, payment method, warranties, deliver times and suchlike. This is arranged in the contract of sale itself, whereby the order confirmation from Merinox is the guiding principle. For the rest, the General Terms and Conditions of Sale of Merinox are applicable to all contracts Merinox concludes with its customers.

 

In general, Merinox delivers "Ex Works” (EXW) whereby the works are the warehouses of Merinox in Alblasserdam. If other standard terms (Incoterms) are agreed, this will be evident from the contract of sale with/order confirmation from Merinox. For more information on the Incoterms, please refer to the publications of the ICC (International Chamber of Commerce).

 

To give you an impression of what the Incoterms contain, you will find a concise description of the relevant Incoterms below. It goes without saying that the official rules and regulations belonging to these Incoterms are determinative, thus no rights can be derived from this concise description.

Ex works (EXW)

“Ex works” means that the seller places the purchased goods at the buyer’s disposal in one of the factories/warehouses of the seller. As far as Merinox is concerned, the warehouses of Merinox are located in Alblasserdam. The seller is not liable for the loading and export clearing of the goods. The buyer bears all costs and risks involved in the carriage. The indication used by Merinox is EXW Ablasserdam.

Free carrier (FCA)

The seller delivers the purchased goods at its expense and risk to the carrier indicated by the buyer at the agreed location (this could be the warehouses of Merinox in Alblasserdam). The seller will provide for export clearing of the goods (if applicable). Carriage is at the expense and risk of the buyer. This Incoterm is suitable for all modes of transport.

Carriage paid to (CPT)

The seller concludes a contract of carriage on its own account to carry the goods to the agreed destination. The seller sees to it that the goods are delivered to the contracted carrier at an agreed place. The seller will provide for export clearing of the goods (if applicable). The goods will be at the buyer’s risk from the time the seller transfers them to the carrier. This Incoterm is suitable for all modes of transport.

Carriage and Insurance paid to (CIP)

The same terms as CPT, on the understanding that, in addition, the seller must conclude an insurance contract at its expense to cover the risk the buyer runs of damage to or loss of the goods during carriage. This Incoterm is suitable for all modes of transport.

Delivered at Terminal (DAT)

“Terminal” means quay, storage place, container, road, railway or airport terminal at the agreed port or place of destination. The seller delivers the goods at its expense and risk, unloaded and at that location. The seller will provide for export clearing of the goods (if applicable). This Incoterm is suitable for all modes of transport.

Delivered at Place (DAP)

The seller delivers the goods at its own expense and risk by placing the goods at the buyer’s disposal on the arriving mode of transport, ready to be unloaded. The seller will provide for export clearing of the goods (if applicable). This Incoterm is suitable for all modes of transport.

Delivered Duty Paid (DDP)

The same terms as DAP, on the understanding that the seller also provides for import clearing of the goods. This Incoterm is suitable for all modes of transport.

Free Alongside Ship (FAS)

The seller delivers the goods at its expense and risk at the port of shipment, alongside the vessel indicated by the buyer. At that time, the risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to the buyer, and from that time the buyer bears all costs. If applicable, the seller will provide for export clearing of the goods. This Incoterm is used only for carriage across water.

Free on board (FOB)

The same terms as FAS, on the understanding that the goods are deemed to have been delivered when they are brought on board the vessel. This Incoterm is used only for carriage across water.

Cost and Freight (CFR)

The same terms as FAS, on the understanding that the seller also concludes a contract of carriage at its expense to carry the goods to the agreed port of destination. This Incoterm is used only for carriage across water.

 

Cost Insurance and Freight (CIF)

The same terms as CFR, on the understanding that, in addition, the seller concludes an insurance contract at its expense to cover the risk the buyer runs of damage to or loss of the goods during carriage.
