"Ex works" means that the seller fulfills hisobligation of delivery when the goods are made available to the buyer at the seller’s premises (factory, warehouse, etc.).

The seller has no obligation to load the merchandise on a vehicle; and, if applicable, is not responsible for export customs formalities (buyer responsibilities). Thisterm can be used for any mode of transportation.
This term involves minimal obligation for the seller and maximum obligation for the buyer. EXW is more appropriate for national trade where FFCA is ofbetter use for international trade.
