Delivery-Duty-Paid (DDP) is a type of supplier/manufacturer arrangement in which the supplier is responsible for the transport of the goods they’ve produced, which are being sent to a manufacturer. This responsibility includes tasks such as:

  • ensuring that products get through Customs,
  • and can be a more complex process than other types of arrangements.

One reason why DDP may be chosen by companies is that it helps to protect them from potential liability issues. For example, if something goes wrong with the delivery of goods while they’re in transit, the supplier would be held responsible, rather than the manufacturer.

DDP doesn’t just apply to transportation within a country – it can also be used for international shipments. In this case, the supplier would be responsible for ensuring that the goods comply with customs regulations in both the destination and transit countries.
