Cargo Insurance

Cargo Insurance

Most of business owners want to have their shipments covered.

According to CHUBB (www.chubb.com)

With thousands of competitors around the world, it is a real challenge to stand out from the competition.

Let’s start by clearing up a common misconception, according to CHUBB – the difference between Freight Liability and Cargo Insurance:

  • Freight liability

If there is no cargo insurance in place, the shipment of your customer is subject to your standard trading conditions, where limitations of liability and exclusions apply.  In the case of a loss to the goods under your responsibility, the compensation will be determined by the trading conditions. Hence, your customer may not receive full settlement, due to limitations (e.g. per kilogram or package) or even worse, the claim might be rejected due to exclusions (e.g. act of God or war). In addition, your customer needs to provide evidence that you are legally liable for the loss that occurred.

  • Cargo insurance

With cargo insurance in place, your customer will be compensated according to the policy of insurance. In case of physical loss or damage to the goods while in transit, your customer will be reimbursed up to the full value of the goods. Also, your customer does not have to prove that you are legally liable for the loss.

The benefits of Cargo Insurance

As explained above, offering cargo insurance is a real benefit for your customers as their cargo is fully protected from loss or damage during the freight movement process if an unexpected event happens.

Cargo insurance is vital for the following reasons:

  • It is a difficult process to make claims against any air, road, rail or sea carriers
  • There is a major hidden cost associated with the handling of cargo claims
  • It removes conflicts with shippers when cargo is lost or damaged
  • It removes uncertainties for shippers
  • It creates goodwill with shippers
