Delivered At Place means the seller delivers, when the goods are placed at the disposal of the buyer, on the arriving means of transport, ready for unloading at the named place of destination. The seller assumes all risks involved in bringing the goods to the named place.

DAP is used irrespective of the mode of transport selected and may also be used where more than one mode of transport is utilized. The point within the agreed place of destination should be specified as clearly agreed upon. The risk to this point belongs to the seller.

If the seller incurs costs under the obtained contract of carriage related to unloading at the place of destination, the seller is not entitled to recover such costs from the buyer, unless otherwise agreed between both parties.

DAP requires the seller to clear goods for export, where applicable, without any obligation to clear the goods for import, pay import duty or carry out import customs formalities.

   Clearly specify the precise point of delivery at or within the named place of destination.
