Delivery duty unpaid (DDU)

Delivered duty unpaid (…named place of destination) or DDU (…named place of destination) can be used for any mode of transport (or for multi-modal transport). It is the second most demanding Incoterm from the seller’s viewpoint, being eclipsed in the regard only by the term delivered duty paid (DDP). DDU and DDP are identical with the one exception: the latter requires the seller to perform all of the DDU obligations plus an additional one, ie to clear the goods for import. Below, the DDU obligations will be reviewed, following which the DDP term will be briefly reviewed.
