Delivered Duty Paid DDP

Delivered Duty Paid DDP named place of destination Incoterms® 2010 - This term may be used whatever mode or modes of transport may be used.

The seller delivers the goods when they are put at the disposal of the buyer, cleared for import on the arriving means of transport and ready for unloading at the named place of destination at an agreed time or within an agreed period.

The seller bears all costs and risks to that point: he must clear goods both for export from country of export and for import and must pay any import charges including VAT and other taxes. Use of this term involves maximum responsibility for the seller. DDP should not be used if, as is often the case, the seller cannot obtain import clearance: if the buyer is to obtain import clearance, DAP should be used.

The place of delivery need not be the buyer's premises, but it should be specified as exactly as possible. (read more)
