Carriage and Insurance Paid To Incoterms CIP
(Click to enlarge)

In Carriage and Insurance Paid To, the seller assumes all risk until the goods are delivered to the carrier at the place of shipment – not place of destination. Once the goods are delivered to the carrier, the buyer is responsible for all risks.

However, the seller is still responsible for the cost of carriage and minimum insurance coverage until the freight reaches the named place of destination.

A carrier is any person or company who undertakes the carriage, such as a shipping line, airline, trucking company, railway or freight forwarder.

In multimodal shipments, the place of shipment is the first carrier used.

   Same as CPT, but the seller is obligated to secure minimum insurance coverage.
