A number of small and medium-sized enterprises need independent distributors to buy and distribute their products. This may be agreed for a foreign importer operating as a trader or for an exporter who appoints a foreign distributor as a foreign importer. Below are important areas to focus on in each distribution contract. The seller delivers the goods when they actually hand it over to the forwarder he has designated. It must also bear all transportation costs to transport the goods to the designated destination. The buyer bears all the risks and other costs incurred after the delivery of the goods. The seller must bear all the risks or damages incurred by the goods until it is delivered. Licenses and authorizations. Please indicate whether the export transaction requires export or import certificates and the responsibilities and fees that are required to be obtained. Import certificates can be difficult to obtain in the buyer`s country. Insurance.
A contract should provide for the insurance of property against loss, deterioration or destruction during transport. The type of risk covered and the extent of coverage. The agreement provides that you are the party that defines the terms: z.B the date of the contract, the property reserve or the restitution policy. Inspection. Include the nature, nature and centre of gravity of the planned inspection and the control agency. A number of goods are now shipped by notified agencies and foreign buyers can set their own inspection points and inspection conditions. Second, the common law is applied throughout the Commonwealth and is understood in almost all countries. As drawn, this export contract leaves it up to the supplier to meet the legal requirements at home and the customer to cover them for completion.
The seller delivers when the goods, as soon as they have been unloaded from the incoming means of transport, are made available to the buyer at a designated terminal at the port or destination. The terminal includes any covered or unsured area, such as the wharf. B, warehouse, container station or road, rail or air freight terminal. The seller bears all the risks associated with loading and unloading the goods at the port terminal or destination. EXW sets the minimum obligation of the seller. The seller delivers the goods to the place mentioned (factory, workshop, warehouse, etc.). The buyer bears all costs and assumes the risks associated with receiving the goods (including transportation, insurance and other expenses). It is rare for the importer to accept the exporter`s first offer and, normally, this first offer is followed by a series of counter-offers sent between the exporter and the importer until each party is satisfied with the terms of the final offer and agrees to comply. Fees and freight mean that the seller must pay the necessary costs and cargo to transport the goods to the aforementioned port of destination, but the risk of loss or deterioration of the goods and any pure additional cost resulting from events that occurred after the delivery of the goods on board the ship are transferred by the seller to the buyer if the goods pass through the rail in the port of embarkation. The term CFR requires the seller to clear the goods for export. Importing the terms of the export contract The document is structured as an agreement (which both parties sign) so that you can negotiate the terms of any transaction with your client.

Of course, there is nothing to prevent you from using the content of this agreement to create terms and conditions for your brochures or offers.
