You may not be aware that standard insurance provided by a freight forwarder or carrier may not fully cover the value of your goods.

Shipping overseas carries a degree of risk. Shipments can become damaged or lost, leaving you with unexpected costs to repair or replace your cargo. Did you know that you are liable, not the carrier, to insure the products being shipped?

The freight forwarder or carrier’s liability insurance can often set unexpectedly low limitations on the compensation available to you. Were you aware that in some cases, this can be limited to as little as £1.30 per kilogram!

By obtaining a Cargo Insurance Policy you can be certain that you have full cover value on your goods in transit.

Protect goods in transit in the UK and overseas with a Cargo Insurance policy. A separate Cargo Insurance policy is highly advised if a business or individual requires full value cover of their goods whilst being transported.

Who Needs a Cargo Insurance Policy?

When transporting goods overseas we highly recommend a cargo insurance policy. This can range from organisations shipping products to foreign customers, buying goods from abroad that need to be shipped back to the UK and even families who are starting a new life overseas and need their personal belongings, furniture and vehicles transporting to their new home.

Many people assume that the carrier will compensate you for the full value of your goods or belongings should they get damaged. This is a common misconception. Shipping companies are only liable to pay you a sum up to the amount specified in their trading conditions – a figure that may be limited to £1,300 per tonne! Not to mention that without a cargo insurance policy you may be liable for the damage or loss of other people’s goods thanks to General Average – which stipulates customers whose cargo survives a voyage to compensate anyone whose cargo was abandoned to protect the cargo vessel.

Unless you’re happy to risk paying thousands of pounds for the damage or loss of your own, or someone else’s, shipments, with the probability of only a few pounds per kilo in compensation, we strongly suggest a cargo insurance policy.

Protect your business’ products or your family’s belongings now. Call us on 01772 780 380 for a no-obligation quote for a cargo insurance policy.
