Freight & Shipping Terms

The freight forwarding and logistics industries are full of obscure and interesting terms. Many originate from shipping, or from the legislation that governs different aspects of the process.

This page provides a glossary of the most common shipping terms and freight forwarding terms. The acronyms are given in brackets in the title of the term, followed by the explanation of the meaning and its use.

Many of these terms are marked as Incoterms: these are a set of definitions of the most commonly used trade terms in foreign trade, used all over the world and issued by the International Chamber of Commerce.

Definiciones de los términos 2010

 

Click on the bars below to view Incoterm descriptions.

 

EXW - En fábrica (lugar convenido)

El vendedor pone mercancía a disposición del comprador en sus propias instalaciones: fábrica, almacén, etc. Todos los gastos a partir de ese momento son por cuenta del comprador.

El incoterm EXW se puede utilizar con cualquier tipo de transporte o con una combinación de ellos (conocido como transporte multimodal). Es decir el proveedor se encarga de la logística y el traslado necesario para que el comprador tenga el suministro del producto en el mismo lugar donde desempeña la tarea productiva. Este Incoterm no sufrió modificación en relación a los Incoterms año 2000.

FAS - Libre al costado del buque (puerto de carga convenido)

El vendedor entrega la mercancía en el muelle pactado del puerto de carga convenido; esto es, al lado del barco. El incoterm FAS es propio de mercancías de carga a granel o de carga voluminosa porque se depositan en terminales del puerto especializadas, que están situadas en el muelle.

El vendedor es responsable de las gestiones y costes de la aduana de exportación (en las versiones anteriores a Incoterms 2000, el comprador organizaba el despacho aduanero de exportación).

FOB - Libre a bordo (puerto de carga convenido)

El vendedor entrega la mercancía sobre el buque. El comprador se hace cargo de designar y reservar el transporte principal (buque).

El incoterm FOB es uno de los más usados en el comercio internacional. Se debe utilizar para carga general (bidones, bobinas, contenedores, etc.) de mercancías, no utilizable para granel.

El incoterm FOB se utiliza exclusivamente para transporte en barco, ya sea marítimo o fluvial.

FCA - Libre transportista (lugar convenido)

El vendedor se compromete a entregar la mercancía en un punto acordado dentro del país de origen, que pueden ser los locales de un transitario, una estación ferroviaria... (este lugar convenido para entregar la mercancía suele estar relacionado con los espacios del transportista). Se hace cargo de los costes hasta que la mercancía está situada en ese punto convenido.

El incoterm FCA se puede utilizar con cualquier tipo de transporte: transporte aéreo, ferroviario, por carretera y en contenedores/transporte multimodal. Sin embargo, es un incoterm poco usado.

CFR - Coste y flete (puerto de destino convenido)

El vendedor se hace cargo de todos los costes, incluido el transporte principal, hasta que la mercancía llegue al puerto de destino. Sin embargo, el riesgo se transfiere al comprador en el momento que la mercancía se encuentra cargada en el buque, en el país de origen. Se debe utilizar para carga general, que se transporta en contenedores; NO es apropiado para los graneles.

El incoterm CFR sólo se utiliza para transporte en barco, ya sea marítimo o fluvial.

CIF - Coste, seguro y flete (puerto de destino convenido)

El vendedor se hace cargo de todos los costes, incluidos el transporte principal y el seguro, hasta que la mercancía llegue al puerto de destino. Aunque el seguro lo ha contratado el vendedor , el beneficiario del seguro es el comprador.

Como en el incoterm anterior, CFR, el riesgo se transfiere al comprador en el momento que la mercancía se encuentra cargada en el buque, en el país de origen. El incoterm CIF es uno de los más usados en el comercio internacional porque las condiciones de un precio CIF son las que marcan el valor en aduana de un producto que se importa. Se debe utilizar para carga general o convencional.

El incoterm CIF es exclusivo del medio marítimo.

CPT - Transporte pagado hasta (lugar de destino convenido)

El vendedor se hace cargo de todos los costes, incluido el transporte principal, hasta que la mercancía llegue al punto convenido en el país de destino. Sin embargo, el riesgo se transfiere al comprador en el momento de la entrega de la mercancía al transportista dentro del país de origen. Si se utilizan varios transportistas para llegar a destino, el riesgo se transmite cuando la mercancía se haya entregado al primero.

El incoterm CPT se puede utilizar con cualquier modo de transporte incluido el transporte multimodal (combinación de diferentes tipos de transporte para llegar a destino).

CIP - Transporte y seguro pagados hasta (lugar de destino convenido)

El vendedor se hace cargo de todos los costes, incluidos el transporte principal y el seguro, hasta que la mercancía llegue al punto convenido en el país de destino. Aunque el seguro lo ha contratado el vendedor, el beneficiario del seguro es el comprador.

El incoterm CIP se puede utilizar con cualquier modo de transporte o con una combinación de ellos (transporte multimodal).

DAT - Entregado en terminal (puerto de destino convenido)

El incoterm DAT se utiliza para todos los tipos de transporte. Es uno de los dos nuevos Incoterms 2010 con DAP y reemplaza el incoterm DEQ.

El vendedor se hace cargo de todos los costes, incluidos el transporte principal y el seguro (que no es obligatorio), hasta que la mercancía es descargada en la terminal convenida. También asume los riesgos hasta ese momento.

El concepto terminal es bastante amplio e incluye terminales terrestres y marítimas, puertos, aeropuertos, zonas francas, etc.): por ello es importante que se especifique claramente el lugar de entrega de la mercancía y que este lugar coincida con el que se especifique en el contrato de transporte.

El Incoterm DAT se utilizaba frecuentemente en el comercio internacional de graneles porque el punto de entrega coincide con las terminales de graneles de los puertos (en las versiones anteriores a Incoterms 2000, con el Incoterm DEQ, el pago de la aduana de importación era a cargo del vendedor; en la versión actual, es por cuenta del comprador).

DAP - Entregado en un punto (lugar de destino convenido)

El Incoterm DAP se utiliza para todos los tipos de transporte. Es uno de los dos nuevos Incoterms 2010 con DAT. Reemplaza los Incoterms DAF, DDU y DES.

El vendedor se hace cargo de todos los costes, incluidos el transporte principal y el seguro (que no es obligatorio), pero no de los costes asociados a la importación, hasta que la mercancía se ponga a disposición del comprador en un vehículo listo para ser descargado. También asume los riesgos hasta ese momento.

DDP - Entregado con derechos pagados (lugar de destino convenido)

El vendedor paga todos los gastos hasta dejar la mercancía en el punto convenido en el país de destino. El comprador no realiza ningún tipo de trámite. Los gastos de aduana de importación son asumidos por el vendedor. El tipo de transporte es polivalente/multimodal.
