    The Incoterms® rules

    Since 1936, the Incoterms® trademark has covered a series of rules that ensure clarity and quality in the drafting of contracts between the different operators involved in national and international transactions.  The last edition of Incoterms® rules came into force on 1st January 2011. Resulting from the work by a group of specialists put together on the initiative of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Incoterms® rules have become a global standard of referral for their clarity and functionality. In fact they identify unequivocally all possible operators and passages for transactions (sender, customs, harbour or airport, frontier, mean of transportation, infrastructures, addressee), and identify punctually  the costs allocated on each operator of the value chain. The six editions  of Incoterms® rules published so far have gradually acknowledged the transformation of the market and the needs of operators at an international level, thanks to the contribution of commercial law experts and consultants of the International Chamber of Commerce.  Being aware of the importance of Incoterms® rules, the ICC has authorized their translation in 31 languages by its national offices, and offers a 6 hour on-line course aimed at their knowledge and correct application.   To find out more: http://www.iccwbo.org/products-and-services/trade-facilitation/incoterms-2010/incoterms-online-training/

    Pole position and podium at the 4H of ZHUHAI

    Raffaele Marciello’s busy week begun on Tuesday, October 24, at the wheel of a Mercedes C63AMG DTM on the Lausitzring track: a challenging DTM test that saw the Ticino driver handle the car with finesse, testing various set-ups in both wet and dry conditions, and earn the praise of the Mercedes team. After the test Marciello rushed to the airport to catch a plane to Zhuhai, China, where the first race of the Asian Le Mans Series awaited. Marciello, invited by AMG as factory driver for the AAI Motorsport team, shared the wheel with amateur Chinese driver Yam Lu – who enthusiastically took in all of Raffaele’s expert advice – and Englishman Ollie Millroy. The weekend started off with three free sessions in which Marciello’s AMG GT3 no. 90 always finished first or second. During qualifying, Raffaele went on to score the top time and obtained the pole position, outclassing, against all odds, even a fast BMW that had the advantage of competing on a track characterised by many straight sections and few complicated turns.
    Marciello then took the wheel during the first hour of the four-hour Endurance race: an harsh drive through penalty pushed him back to third, but Raffaele fought back with a series of fast laps that propelled him alone at the top. Yam Lu took the wheel for the second stint: while he couldn’t match the Ticino driver’s relentless pace, he drove with confidence and kept the car in first before passing the baton to Millroy. During the latter’s stint the breaking system begun to malfunction, and Marciello, who jumped back in the seat inheriting of an advantage of only two seconds, immediately knew that winning the race was out of the question: he focused his energy on defending the second place instead. It later turned out that the brake pads were completely consumed by the end of the third hour – the result of a compound mistake that effectively ended up jeopardising the race. Still, Marciello can be proud of bringing home yet another podium, especially after such a demanding week.
    Marciello will be back at the wheel, representing Mercedes-AMG, at the FIA GT World Cup in Macau from November 16th to 19th.
