Chapter II - The delivery

§ 7 - Local sales and shipment sales

(1) If the goods are to be brought to the buyer in the same place or within the same area to which the seller normally undertakes to bring such goods (local sale), the delivery is made when the goods are received there.

(2) If the goods are to be shipped to the buyer (shipment sale) and if not otherwise provided by transport clause or other agreement, delivery will be made by the goods being handed over to the carrier who undertakes to transport them from the place of shipment. If the seller undertakes the transport himself, the delivery is effected only when the goods are received by the buyer.

(3) If the goods have been sold "free", "delivered", or "delivered free", with the indication of a specific place, the goods are not regarded as delivered until they have arrived at that place.

(4) In consumer sales, the goods are delivered when they are received by the buyer. However, if the buyer is to collect the goods at the destination, delivery shall be regarded as effected when he is obliged to collect them at the destination.
