§ 7 Shipment, Transport, Packaging, Transfer of Risk, Proof of Origin
(1) Delivery shall be made "delivered duty paid" in accordance with the DDP clause of INCOTERMS 2020. The Supplier must indicate our order details on all shipping documents and delivery bills. The delivered goods must be accompanied by the necessary documents - usually customary in the trade - which enable us to properly allocate and process the delivery.
(2) Each consignment shall be accompanied by a delivery bill in duplicate, in which all identifications prescribed in our order, in particular order no., part no., batch no., item no., are stated. The delivery bill should be attached to the outside of the delivery, either under a sticker or under packing paper with the bill: "Here delivery bill". In the case of import deliveries, all necessary accompanying documents, in particular movement certificates, express vouchers, customs shipping documents, certificates of origin and invoices, must be enclosed with the shipment, depending on the type of shipment and country of delivery.
(3) Each delivery shall be notified to us in writing in such a way that we are aware of the number of items, dimensions and weights before the arrival of the goods, stating our order number. This shall also apply to any special regulations for handling the goods, in particular for unloading, transport and storage in our area of operation. Delays, additional costs as well as damages caused by non-observance of our shipping instructions shall be borne by the supplier. In the case of freight shipments, a notice of shipment must be sent to us separately on the day of shipment.
(4) The supplier shall select the packaging specified by us and shall ensure that the goods are protected from damage by the packaging. If we do not specify any packaging, the goods shall be packaged in a manner customary in the trade. We reserve the right to return packaged goods to the supplier at the supplier's expense. The supplier shall be liable for any loss or damage occurring during transport, including unloading, up to the point of acceptance at our works. The supplier shall therefore take out adequate transport insurance for its deliveries.
(5) If, in exceptional cases, transport costs are borne by us, we shall determine the carrier, who shall be requested from us in good time. The consignments ready for dispatch shall be notified to this carrier by fax. The freight must be declared in the consignment note in such a way that the cheapest permissible freight rate is charged for the consignment, taking into account the transport security.
(6) The risk shall only pass upon delivery incl. unloading by the supplier or the transport company to the shipping address specified by us or upon installation and acceptance in our works. This shall also apply if our personnel assist with unloading. Until dispatch, the goods shall be stored for us free of charge and at the risk of the supplier.
(7) Insofar as the goods manufactured by the supplier for us are required for export, the supplier shall be obliged to submit a written declaration on the customs origin of the delivery items. This declaration shall be sent to us with the first delivery at the latest.
(8) The origin of newly included delivery items or a change of origin must be notified to us immediately and without being requested. The supplier shall be liable for all disadvantages incurred by us due to improper or delayed submission of the supplier's declaration. If necessary, the supplier shall provide evidence of the origin of the goods by means of an information sheet confirmed by its customs office.
(9) Goods shall be accepted during our business hours or the goods acceptance times notified by us.
