Delivered Duty Paid (DDP)

What does Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) mean?

Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) is a term used in shipping to describe when an importer pays for transportation and assumes ownership of the shipment. This shifts the risk away from the roaster, who benefits from not having to worry about arranging and paying for shipping, insurance, and related risks.

Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) in simple terms

When coffee is shipped from one place to another, there are a lot of things that can go wrong and the coffee can get lost, damaged or stolen. To make sure that the coffee gets to the roaster safely, sometimes the importer will take care of all the transportation and any risks that might happen along the way.
