What is DPU?

DPU, or Delivered at Place Unloaded, formerly known as DAT (Delivered at Terminal), is an international trade term that describes a contract where the seller is required to deliver the goods to the final destination, including unloading.

According to DPU Incoterms, what is each party responsible for?

Under DPU, the seller is responsible for clearing export customs, carriage to the final destination, and unloading at the destination. The buyer however, must pay for import fees and duties, arrange import clearance, and pay for cargo insurance.

With DPU, risk and responsibility passes from seller to buyer at the precise named location after the goods have been unloaded.

When is DPU used?

DPU can apply to any, or many, modes of transportation. However, the key to DPU is that the buyer and seller must agree on a specific named place of destination for the goods to be unloaded and delivered.
