Delivered At Terminal (. . . named terminal at port or place of destination) (DAT)

(Incoterms© 2010, enter into force January 1, 2011)
One of the 11 Incoterms© 2010.
In Delivered At Terminal, the seller/exporter/manufacturer clears the goods for export and is responsible for their delivery to the “named terminal at port or place of destination.”
In DAT, the seller makes the goods available to the buyer unloaded from the arriving means of transport.
The terminal can be of any sort: a sea, road, air, or rail terminal; a warehouse, a quay, or container yard; and covered or uncovered.
When using the DAT term, it is advisable to clearly specify in the contract of sale and in contracts of carriage, not only the terminal by name, but also the precise point at or within the terminal at the named port or place of destination.
In DAT, the named terminal at port or place of destination is domestic to the buyer. The DAT term may be used for any mode of transport including multimodal. All forms of payment are used in DAT transactions. The DAT term is ideal for multimodal transport. DAT is the only term under which the seller is responsible for unloading.
