DEQ : Delivered Ex Quay (...named port of destination)

In Delivered Ex Quay, the seller/exporter/manufacturer clears the goods for export and is responsible for making them available to the buyer on the quay (warf) at the named port of destination, not cleared for import. The buyer, therefore, assumes all responsibilities for import clearance, duties, and other costs upon import as well as transport to the final destination. This is new for Incoterms 2000.

The DES term is used only for shipments of goods arriving at the port of destination by ocean or by inland waterway.

All forms of payment are used in DDU transactions.

The DDU term is used when the named place of destination (point of delivery) is other than the seaport or airport.
