This blog is a blog to highlight the blogs on the UCM Blog Page which are our top blogs in terms of popular blog reading. Too many blogs in that sentence? I can never tell.

No need to keep you waiting, here’s the countdown of Universal Cargo Management’s top 5 most popular blogs:

1 – What’s the Deal With Incoterms?! / Incoterms Definitions

Incoterms is a popular subject. Our number one most successful blog is What’s the Deal With Incoterms?! While that blog is our most popular, I’m cheating here a little bit by including the whole series of blogs that define the different incoterms individually with it. Each of these blogs could have made this list individually; but, to keep this list from becoming a list of incoterm blogs, I’ve bundled these together.

If you want to know the definition of a particular incoterm, you can find it in the title list of the incoterms definitions blogs below.

Incoterms Definitions Part 1: EXW, FCA, FAS, FOB

Incoterms Definitions Part 2: CFR, CIF, CPT, CIP

Incoterms Definitions Part 3: DAT, DAP, DDP

Of course, as a freight forwarder, we’re not here merely to write blogs related to international shipping; we’re here to handle your international shipping so you can focus on the part of your business you love.
