Fireside Chat: Incoterms Rules and the 2020 Revisions – A Discussion

Frank Reynolds, the US Council for International Business representative to the International Chamber of Commerce for the Incoterms 2020 revisions, provides a look at the establishment and use of Incoterms rules and the status of Incoterms 2020 revisions. Incoterms have long been the preeminent internationally accepted rules for establishing trade and delivery terms between sellers and buyers in sales contracts. This session will also explore the application of these rules in today’s global business environment and the ICC's intention for improving the use of Incoterms rules with the 2020 revisions.

 

Join Reynolds and Global Logistics Consultant Dennis Mottola for an in-depth discussion of Incoterms past and future, as they discuss:

  • What is the history of Incoterms rules, and what are the proper means for applying them in a sales contract? What were the primary objectives of the ICC drafting committee with the 2020 revisions? 
  • How was input from US sellers and buyers and those in other countries considered by the ICC in the 2020 revisions?
  • How might the 2020 revisions benefit sellers and buyers vs the current rules?
  • Have there been any updates or changes to term definitions?
