Delivered at Place Unloaded DPU (Incoterms 2020)

In Incoterms 2010, this rule was referred to as Delivered At Terminal

There are no restrictions on the named place – for example it can be a transport hub, a warehouse or the buyer’s depot.

The seller is responsible for arranging carriage and for delivering the goods, unloaded from the arriving means of transport, at the named place.

Risk transfers from seller to buyer when the goods have been unloaded.   This is the only rule that requires the seller to unload the goods in order to complete delivery.

The buyer is responsible for import clearance and any applicable local taxes or import duties.

A useful rule, well suited to container operations where the seller bears responsibility for the main carriage.

Things to watch for:

The place must be specified precisely, as many transport hubs are very large
