Delivered Ex Ship (…named port of destination) (DES)

(obsolete-Incoterms 2000) An international trade term of sale in which, for the quoted price, the seller/exporter/manufacturer clears the goods for export and is responsible for making them available to the buyer on board the ship at the named port of destination, not cleared for import.
The seller is thus responsible for all costs of getting the goods to the named port of destination prior to unloading.
The DES term is used only for shipments of goods by ocean or inland waterway or by multimodal transport where the final delivery is made on a vessel at the named port of destination.
See Incoterms© 2010, World Trade Press Illustrated Guide to Incoterms© 2010 Appendix for details.
