“Hydrogen will make ranges of up to 1,000 kilometers possible in the future”

In the push to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the coming years, alternatives to diesel are in demand, especially in the transport and logistics sector. In addition to battery electric vehicles, which are already on the road today for city-center deliveries, trucks powered by hydrogen fuel cells (H2 trucks) could be an option for zero-emissions transportation over longer distances. A feasibility study conducted by Kempten University of Applied Sciences on behalf of DACHSER has now come to the conclusion, based on simulations, that the use of H2 trucks in DACHSER’s groupage logistics network is in principle possible. An interview with Prof. Werner E. Mehr from Kempten University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, and Andre Kranke, Department Head Trends and Technology Research at DACHSER.

Incoterms 2020

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) will soon release the new Incoterms 2020, providing certainty and clarity to businesses trading across borders. The new Incoterms will be effective as of January 1st, 2020.

Every 10 years, the International Chamber of Commerce evaluates and revises the International Commercial Terms, better known as Incoterms, as a means of creating greater uniformity and effectiveness across the shipping industry. The latest version, Incoterms 2010, will stay in effect until January 2020.

What does "Incoterms" stand for?

It is an acronym standing for international commercial terms. Incoterms is a trademark of the International Chamber of Commerce, registered in several countries.

The Incoterms rules feature abbreviations for terms, like FOB (“Free on Board”), DAP (“Delivered at Place”), EXW (“Ex Works”), CIP (“Carriage and Insurance Paid To”), which all have very precise meanings for the sale of goods around the world. These terms hold universal meaning for buyers and sellers around the world.

The main Incoterms changes that are being considered are: 

  • The removal of FAS (Free Alongside Ship) as it is being used infrequently;
  • Separating FCA (Free Carrier) into two separate Incoterms: one for road delivery and one for maritime delivery;  
  • The committee is also considering bringing back the terms FOB (Free on Board) and CIF (Cost, Insurance, Freight), instead of the FCA and CIP (Cost and Insurance Paid to) used for non-container shipments.
  • There is also a debate about the creation of a new Incoterms called CNI (Cost and Insurance) to bridge the gap between FCA and CFR/CIF (Cost and Freight/Cost, Insurance, Freight). Currently, FCA includes the cost of international insurance on account of the seller-exporter, while CFR/CIF does not include the cost of freight.
  • Lastly, to alleviate questions surrounding the party responsible for paying Customs fees, the ICC will evaluate the creation of 2 Incoterms to replace DDP (Delivered Duty Paid).

Other issues and updates being evaluated during this round include:

  • Transportation security
  • Regulations on transportation insurance
  • Relationship between the Incoterms and the International Sale Contract

We will provide another update once the official Incoterms 2020 rules have been announced by the ICC. Please contact us if you have any questions.
