Door To Door [Last Updated by: admin on 2012-01-01]
A transport service covering carriage from the seller's premises to the buyer's premises. Note that this term refers to a freight charge in a carriage contract between a carrier and a shipper, and thus is distinct from the issue of the Incoterm chosen in the contract of sale (an agreement between seller and buyer). Depending on the circumstances of the transaction, it could be possible to quote prices on either EXW, FCA, CPT, CIP, DDU, or DDP Incoterms in conjunction with so-called "house to house" transport services. Attention should be given to the inclusion of loading/unloading charges in the "house to house" rate, especially in comparison with the responsibility under the respective Incoterm for loading or unloading. The shipper should make sure that the transport service corresponds to the contractual obligations under Incoterms. It is sometimes said that "door to door" services imply that loading and unloading are not included in the freight charge, but this is not a standard rule and traders; should inquire in each particular case. Door to door is sometimes used, synonymously with house to house, but it is claimed by some that there is a distinction between the two, namely that "house to house" only refers to rental rates for containers from container yard to container yard; See house to house.
