What is EXW Shipping?

Vendors have the option to offer products with EXW pricing. EXW (exworks) means that the buyer must pick up or arrange for picking up the order at the seller's factory or distribution center. The seller is not responsible for shipping in this scenario. They manufacture  only and make the product available for pickup during certain times of the day. The buyer is responsible to arrange for pickup via DHL/UPS/FEDEX or any other carrier or buyer can also use their own freight forwarder company who will arrange for this shipment. Seller is only responsible telling the buyer the location and time frame the shipment is available for pickup. 

Buyer is responsible for all the costs, risk, insurance after the products leave the seller's facility. Buyer pays for freight and insurance.
