Door-to-airport delivery services refer to a logistics solution in which a company provides transportation of goods from a shipper's or seller’s location to the airport, where the goods are then forwarded to their destination (“named place”) by air.
In today's fast-paced business environment, timely and efficient transportation of goods is crucial. For businesses that need to ship time-sensitive or valuable items, door-to-airport delivery services are a reliable logistics solution.
Door-to-airport delivery services typically involve several stages, including the collection of the goods from the shipper's location, customs clearance, and transportation to the airport.
Depending on the service provider, additional services such as packing, crating, and insurance may also be included.
Choosing the Right Incoterms for Door-to-Airport Shipping
When it comes to shipping goods from door to airport, the most frequently used Incoterms are EXW (Ex-Works) and CIP (Carriage and Insurance Paid to). EXW involves the seller making the goods available at their location, and the buyer being responsible for all transportation costs and risks. On the other hand, CIP involves the seller being responsible for the transportation of goods to the airport, as well as the costs and risks associated with transportation.
It is important for both parties to clearly define their respective responsibilities and liabilities in the shipping agreement to avoid any misunderstandings or disputes.
