Carriage and Insurance Paid To = CIP - Incoterms 2000

An international trade term of sale in which, for the quoted price, the seller/exporter clears the goods for export, delivers them to the carrier, and is responsi¬ble for paying for carriage and insurance to the named place of destination. However, once the goods are delivered to the carrier, the buyer is responsible for all additional costs.

In Incoterms 2000 the seller is also responsible for the costs of unloading, customs clearance, duties and other costs if such costs are included in the cost of carriage such as in small package courier delivery.

The seller is responsible for procuring and paying for in¬surance cover.

The CIP term is valid for any form of transport including multimodal.

The named place of destination in CIP and all C Inco¬terms 2000 is domestic to the buyer, but is not necessarily the final delivery point.

The Carriage and Insurance Paid To term is often used in sales where the shipment is by air freight, containerized ocean freight, courier shipments of small parcels, and in ro-ro (roll-on, roll-off) shipments of motor vehicles.

A carrier can be a shipping line, airline, trucking firm, railway or also an individual or firm who undertakes to procure carriage by any of the above methods of transport including multimodal. Therefore, a person, such as a freight forwarder, can act as a carrier under this term.

If subsequent carriers are used for the carriage to the agreed destination, the risk passes when the goods have been delivered to the first carrier.
