Jurisdiction on international sale of goods

By a judgment issued on 16 January 2014, the Tribunal of Mantova declared the lack of jurisdiction of the Italian Courts holding that in the absence of an agreement between the parties (necessary requirement according to EC Regulation 44/2001), the place of delivery of the goods must be intended as the place where the goods are in fact to be delivered to the buyer, notwithstanding the “CPT (Carriage Paid To)” clause.
