To determine delivery terms for who is responsible for the transport, insurance and the risk if something goes wrong, the standardized trade terms Incoterms and Combiterms are used.

Incoterms and Combiterms

Incoterms is a collection of international delivery terms that are used both within Sweden and internationally. Combiterms is a Swedish supplement to Incoterms used in Sweden.

What is Incoterms?

Incoterms (International commerce terms) are a set of international trade terms on how goods transport costs and responsibilities should be distributed between buyer and seller. They are fundamental in international trade transactions and cover matters relating to deliveries between buyers and sellers. This includes how the goods are to be transported, who pays for what, import and export clearance, and who bears the risk at different parts of the journey.

What is Combiterms?

Combiterms (combined delivery terms) are a set of Swedish trade terms developed by the Swedish Transport Industry Association. Combiterms is not an independent set of rules for delivery conditions, but is used as a supplement to Incoterms to better clarify who is responsible for certain costs, and for which distances. They offer guidance on Incoterms delivery terms and cost headings with the associated three-digit code. Combiterm's main function is to combine the delivery terms with a clear system for the distribution of costs between buyers and sellers.
