of the goods. This choice will also be indicated on the order confirmation which a Customer has
to sign to enter into an agreement with Eurofar. These ways of transportation are (see
Incoterms 2020): DAP – Delivered at Place (named place of destination) Eurofar pays for
carriage to the named place, except for costs related to import clearance, and assumes all risks
prior to the point that the goods are ready for unloading by the customer. DDP – Delivered
Duty Paid (named place of destination): Eurofar is responsible for delivering the goods to the
named place in the country of the customer, and pays all costs in bringing the goods to the

board of the vessel nominated by the customer. Cost and risks are for the customer once the

disability and/or legal restraint and/or any equivalent foreign legal measure; or enters into any
