Ex Works An international trade term meaning that the seller's sole responsibility is to make the goods available at sellers premises. The seller is not responsible for loading the goods on the vehicle provided by the buyer, unless otherwise agreed. The buyer bears the full cost and risk involved in bringing the goods from there to buyers desired destination.
