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.

AN EXCELLENCE OF TWS
To better meet the needs of their customers, two years ago Trans World Shipping activated a service to deal with the application procedures of CITES export permits. CITES permits, which in Italy are issued by the State Forestry Corps, are mandatory by law for export transactions with non - EU Countries regarding the items listed by Commission Regulation (EC) No 407/2009 of 14th May 2009, which protects wild flora and fauna species by regulating their trade (Washington Convention – CITES). Bureaucratic procedures for CITES permit applications are carried out by experienced TWS staff, following operating processes that have been consolidated over time, thanks to the large number of permits dealt with. All this for the benefit of Trans World Shipping customers, who can be granted their permits in a considerably short time.Show more >>

Gabriele Gaetani at the Italian TV talk show “Porta a Porta”:
“The Italian Government must do more in support of enterprises”
Even for those companies that are not suffering from the current economic crisis, as in the case of TWS, the heavy tax burden and the slow VAT refunds by the Government seriously endanger the Made in Italy industry. The episode of “Porta a Porta” of 21 January 2015, which revolved around the taxation system for companies, opened with two services from the Marches region on this particular theme. One of the two entrepreneurs interviewed was Gabriele Gaetani, the president and owner of TWS, who stressed the need for more rapid and effective measures in support of the industrial development and competitiveness of the Italian country’s system, which boasts many examples of business excellence.
