Cargo insurance – Better safe than sorry

In general, logistic companies, shippers, carriers, and freight forwarders only carry limited liability under international law and maybe even less under national law, which is why we strongly suggest that you stay safe by getting cargo insurance. Specifically, when dealing with the transport of ready-made goods and so-called high-value products, the economic risk is so high that cargo insurance should be a natural preference.

Your cargo may be damaged or lost for numerous reasons in transit or during transport. Who is liable can be fairly complex. Especially since there are major differences between the liability of shippers, carriers, and freight forwarders. Without insurance, you risk not being able to get any or full compensation if your cargo gets damaged.

Minimise the risks

Transport of goods is always associated with risks – whether it relates to transport by vessel, truck, rail or airplane.

With cargo insurance, you are, for instance, covered and protected from:

  • Suffering financial damage due to loading incidents
  • Traffic accidents
  • Incorrect handling
  • Stolen or lost goods
  • And more

You never know what may happen.

At the same time, our insurance solutions are very competitive due to our expertise and large portfolio.
