Was bedeutet Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU)?

Similar to DDP, the abbreviation DDU ("delivered, duty unpaid") refers to the scope of services offered by the seller.

In the case of DDU delivery, the goods are delivered to the place of destination, but the seller is responsible for taking care of the import duties and regulations.

DDU is part of the Incoterm codes 2000, which were reduced from 11 to 13 clauses by the Incoterms 2010. Despite the appearance of new Incoterm versions, it is still possible to conclude contracts with older clauses if, for example, long-term business relationships exist. The use of the clauses in the description of goods is voluntary, but simplifies the international movement of goods and makes standardization possible.
