What are Incoterms? How do they impact my contracts and deliveries?

The Incoterms you see on your contract with Trabocca define the point at which the risk of loss or damage to the coffee shifts from seller (Trabocca) to buyer (roaster). They also dictate to which party the originating warehouse will assess loadout charges, including handling, palletizing, banding, and shrink-wrapping. For shipments originating from Trabocca’s position at one of many warehouses, we typically structure contracts under four different terms: EXW, FCA, DAP, and DDP.
