We really prefer to quote on EXW basis, subject to T/T payment. By this way, the quotation will be offered very soon, which saves us time.
If on FOB or CIF basis, we need more time to check other charges for O/F, LCL, haulage, customs declaration, DOC, warehouse, commercial inspection, fumigation, etc. By this way, the quotation will be offered quite late.
Thus, we request customers to kindly allow us to quote on EXW basis at the very beginning. Later, after all machine details are settled by negotiation, we'll be really glad to quote again on FOB or CIF basis, as required.
