  2. 2. The Export Contract is used in international sales of certain products (raw materials, industrial supplies, manufactured goods) which are intended for resale, where the buyer is an importer, trader, distributor or wholesaler that will sell the products to another company or retailer. In the case of international sales of products for the end client or complex products (machinery, capital goods, etc.) with guarantees and after sales service, it is advisable to use the International Sale Contract.
