Terms of delivery

1.Which pricing terms do you currently support?


   ESSA currently supports two ways of pricing: EXW, FOB.


   EXW - "Ex Works" means that the seller fulfils his obligation to deliver when he has made the goods available at his premises (i.e. works, factory, warehouse, etc.) to the buyer. In particular, he is not responsible for loading the goods on the vehicle provided by the buyer or for clearing the goods for export, unless otherwise agreed. This term thus represents the minimum obligation for the seller. The buyer bears all cost and risks involved in taking the goods from the seller's premises to the desired destination.


   FOB - "Free On Board" means that the seller fulfils his obligation to deliver when the goods have passed over the ship's rail at the named port of shipment. This means that the buyer has to bear all costs and risks of loss of or damage to the goods from that point. The FOB term requires the seller to clear the goods for export.



2.How to calculate the FOB price and what does it include?


   FOB fee = costs of transportation from the factory to the port + document fees + customs clearance fees + pier operating costs.


   Single item FOB price = (FOB total fee/container volume) X single item box volume / packing quantity.
