General rules for Delivery
When ordering, the buyer has the choice between the following delivery methods:
EXW - ExWorks
SODOOWO duly delivered the goods when it was made available to the buyer in its own premises or in another agreed place (workshop, factory, warehouse, etc ...), and without completion of customs formalities for export and without loading on any removal vehicle. This term therefore defines the minimum obligation of the seller, the buyer having to bear all the costs and risks inherent in taking over the goods from the seller's premises.
FOB - Free on Board
SODOOWO duly delivered when the goods passed the ship's rail at the port of embarkation. It follows that from this point the buyer must bear all the costs and risks of loss or damage that the goods may run. The term FOB requires SODOOWO to clear the goods for export. It is to be used exclusively for transport by sea or inland waterways.
CFR - Cost and Freight
SODOOWO duly delivered when the goods passed the ship's rail at the port of embarkation. SODOOWO shall pay the costs and freight necessary to transport the goods to the agreed port of destination. But the risk of loss or damage that the merchandise may run, as well as any additional costs arising from events occurring after delivery, are transferred from the seller to the buyer. This term is to be used exclusively for transport by sea and inland waterways.
CIF - Cost, Insurance, Freight
SODOOWO duly delivered when the goods passed the ship's rail at the port of embarkation. SODOOWO shall pay the costs and freight necessary to transport the goods to the agreed port of destination. But the risk of loss or damage that the merchandise may run as well as any additional costs arising from events occurring after delivery are transferred from SODOOWO to the buyer. However, under CIFSODOOWO must also provide marine insurance to cover the buyer against the risk of loss or damage that the goods may run during transport.
As a result, SODOOWO enters into an insurance contract and pays the insurance premium. The buyer should note that, according to the CIF term, SODOOWO is only required to underwrite the insurance for minimum coverage.
DDP - Delivered Duty Paid
SODOOWO delivers the goods to the buyer, cleared for import and not unloaded upon arrival of any transport vehicle at the agreed destination. SODOOWO must bear all the costs and risks involved in transporting the goods, including, where applicable, any "law" to the import into the country of destination. While the term EXW defines the minimum obligation of the seller, the term DDP defines the maximum obligation.
Once the order is validated, the buyer will receive an email indicating the date of receipt of his products.
Deliveries are made by the network SODOOWO office closest to the delivery address provided by the customer. Upon validation and payment of the order by the customer, the office SODOOWO in question will contact you to discuss a delivery date.
