International Commercial Terms, often referred to in industry as incoterms, are internationally adopted rules and regulations used in trade documents. Incoterms are often presented in the form of acronyms, which can make it hard for new exporters to grasp the meaning behind these phrases. Learning and understanding these terms is key to being aware of obligations, risks, and the costs of international trade deals and the 2015 edition of the CME Incoterms 2010® webinars will help early exporters gain insight into this critical exporting component.
