Since 9/11 and incidents such as the oil tanker bombing in the Gulf of Aden in 2002, cargo security is now high on the transport industry agenda.

The Incoterms 2020 edition analyses responsibilities by reference to activities associated with the export clearance process, the transport process and the import clearance process.
