Cargo Insurance

Cargo Insurance

When you move products, stock, and R&D materials around, you'll need specialist advice - especially if your materials are temperature-sensitive. Think twice before relying on your courier's insurance - their cover may not be entirely adequate and could leave you with a shortfall.

Why Cargo Insurance? What if...

  • Your goods become degraded during the transit process?
  • The courier's warehouse has inadequate security and your cargo is stolen?
  • Your property is damaged during an import/export examination?
  • Delivery of critical cargo is delayed, causing loss of revenue or expiration of goods?

Cover can include...

  • Full value of the goods declared
  • Protection for your products and materials during transit by land, sea, or air
  • Can be linked to consequential loss insurance for loss of revenue caused by transit issues
