Incoterms 2020
August 5, 2019

Did you know that there is an update to Incoterms that will be effective January 1, 2020?  There will be a few changes!  Some of the announced changes include a new incoterm CNI (Cost and Insurance).  This term will cover a gap between FCA and CFR.

Unlike FCA, which would include the cost of international insurance on account of the seller-exporter, and as opposed to CFR/CIF. CNI would not include freight. As in the other Incoterms in “C,” this new Incoterm would be an “arrival Incoterm,” i.e., the risk of transport would be transmitted from the seller to the buyer at the port of departure.

​Stay tuned over the next several months for more updates on Incoterms 2020!
