Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU)

Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU)

DDU was officially replaced by DAP as an International Commercial Term in 2020.

What is Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU)?

DDU is an old International Commercial Term (Incoterm) in which the seller is responsible for the delivery of goods to the buyer's specified destination, for paying the transportation costs, and for assuming all other risks during transport.

DDU was officially replaced by Delivery at Place (DAP) as an Incoterm in 2020.

How is DDP different from DDU?

With DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid), duties and taxes have not been paid, so the goods are only released from customs after payment has been settled.
