Background and Aim: In the contract of sale especially where the sale involves a contract of carriage of goods, this important question arises that in the case of loss or damage without fault before delivering the Sold goods, Who is responsible for damages or losses taken place in that case? Seller or buyer? Since the international trades and also internal trades for sale of goods requires special contractual forms (Incoterms rules), it is necessary to answer the above questions in relation to the rules of Incoterms.
Materials and Methods: For present study, the descriptive approach has been chosen and relevant information collected by the documentary and library method.
Ethical Considerations: In order to organize this research, while observing the authenticity of the texts, honesty and confidentiality have been observed.
Findings: Among trade terms mentioned in Incoterms that are used for different methods of  goods carriage, the EXW, FCA, CPT, CIP, DAP, DAT and DDP  are of importance. These methods are divided to two kinds of “Delivery to Carrier” and “Deliver to Buyer”.
Conclusion: Contrary to domestic law which passing of risk requires delivery of goods, in Vienna convention the risk of sale is imposed on the buyer. Since in Incoterms, the carriage of goods sold is usually associated with a variety of issues and also the deviations in it can postpone the delivery of goods and delay in passing of risk delivery, Incoterms try to ban these unusual obstacles. In Iran there is no special rule about the effect of carriage contract on delivery of goods and passing of risk but it is possible to apply articles 380, 387, 567 and 349 of civil law for carriage contracts.
