Cargo Insurance Arrangement

Damaged cargo comes in all shapes and sizes. Protect your cargo, protect your business.

Three facts you should know about shipping:

  • Carriers are not liable for loss or damage to your cargo caused by natural disasters.
    You are. You can't predict when nature will strike. But you can protect your goods with cargo insurance.
  • Your buyer's or supplier's insurance isn't enough.
    It's risky to rely on someone else's insurance. Purchasing your own insurance coverage puts you in control of the options – and the cost.
  • Stolen or mishandled cargo is your responsibility.
    Carriers can limit their liability according to tariffs or Bills of Lading. If your cargo is stolen or damaged in transit, your settlement may not even cover your replacement costs!
