Could you help me with this text?
I need to translate this into Spanish. It´s part of my thesis.
Prices are usually calculated free depot. In exceptional cases, the buyer might also ask for ex works prices.

I am having an educated guess - since nobody else has answered.
"free depot price" - is probably the price from a 'duty free depot or shop'. ie the price before any local sales tax is added.
"ex works price" - I have only heard this used for stone coming out of a quarry. Stone arrives "ex works" or the wagon comes straight from the quarry so you get an ex-works price.
So I would re-phrase this as "prices are usually calculated without sales tax or exceptionally at factory gate prices".
