  1. Incoterms® 2010 do not deal with the parties' obligations for stowage within a container and therefore, where relevant, the parties should deal with this in the sales contract.
  2. FCA Seller’s Facility – Buyer pays inland freight; other FCA qualifiers. Seller arranges and loads pre-carriage carrier and pays inland freight to the "F" delivery place.
  3. Incoterms® 2010 does not obligate the buyer nor must the seller to insure the goods, therefore this issue be addressed elsewhere in the sales contract.
  4. Charges paid by Buyer or Seller depending on contract of carriage.
  5. Charges paid by Seller if through Bill of Lading or door-to-door rate to Buyer’s destination.
