Guidance note

This rule may be used irrespective of the mode of transport selected and may also be used where more than one mode of transport is employed.

‘Delivered Duty Paid’ means that the seller delivers the goods when the goods are placed at the disposal of the buyer, cleared for import on the arriving means of transport ready for unloading at the named place of destination.
