Cash Against Documents (CAD)

Terms and Conditions
Under CAD terms, you - the customer - appoint your bank as consignee for the shipment and as paying agent. Customers and their appointed bank have to be approved by Precix Advanced Cutting Technology for CAD terms prior to shipment. CAD terms are not available to all countries.

When you place your purchase order with PRECIX:
• In your purchase order, name the bank you will be using, including the bank's full street address (not a P.O. Box), city and postal code, telephone number, fax number and contact person or department at the bank. The bank must be in the same country that the shipment is going to, ideally at a location close to the airport/port at which the shipment is arriving, so that we avoid delays for transferring the freight papers from the bank to you or your import agent.

When PRECIX ships your order under CAD terms:
• We will ship through a freight forwarder appointed by Precix Advanced Cutting Technology.
• The shipment will be insured through Precix Advanced Cutting Technology.
• The freight forwarder will consign the shipment to the bank, meaning the Air Waybill or Ocean B/L is made out to the bank.
• The freight papers (Waybill, Draft and Invoice) will be sent by our forwarder separately from the freight by courier directly to the bank for payment.
• As soon as the bank receives the freight papers, they have to accept the Draft and effect payment. Payment of the full invoice amount is due in US Dollars upon receipt of the freight papers, by wire transfer to the bank stated on the Draft.
• Upon acceptance of the draft, the bank must release the freight papers to you, so that you can pick up the shipment from customs, or you can hand the papers to your import agent to clear the shipment from customs for you.

Please be aware that:
• Because the freight and the freight papers are sent separately, there will be a delay for you to receive the shipment from customs. The freight papers go out by courier on the business day following the day of shipment and take 2-3 business days to reach the bank.
• Your bank must be familiar with this process, and assure you that they will promptly take care of processing the draft, and release and send the papers to you, so that you (or your import agent) can obtain the shipment from customs.
• Your bank must be fully informed by you about the upcoming CAD and have funds available.
• Please make sure your staff who handles the CAD shipment is familiar with this process.

If you, or your bank, have any question about Cash Against Documents terms, please contact your sales representative at the above phone or fax number.
