Did you know that standard insurance provided by a freight forwarder or carrier may not fully cover the value of your goods?

Marine Insurance protects goods in transit both in the UK and worldwide. If a business or individual requires full value cover of their goods whilst in transportation, a separate Cargo Insurance policy is highly recommended.

Shipping goods or belongings overseas comes with an element of risk. Shipments can become lost or damaged, leaving you facing substantial costs to replace or repair your cargo. Contrary to widespread belief, it’s actually your responsibility, not the carrier, to insure the products being shipped.

The freight forwarder or carriers liability insurance can often impose significant limitations on the compensation available to the customer. In some cases this can be limited to just £1.30 per kilogram!

By obtaining marine insurance you can be confident that have full cover value on your goods in transit. When you buy marine insurance online with The Insurance Broker, you’ll know you are in safe hands.

Who Needs Cargo Insurance?

In short, anyone transporting goods overseas needs marine cargo insurance cover. This can range from businesses 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 destination.

Despite the common misconception, your carrier won’t compensate you for the full value of your goods or belongings in the event of damage. Shipping companies are only liable to pay you a sum up to the amount specified in their trading conditions – a figure that may be as low as £1,300 per tonne. That’s why having marine transport insurance is so important.

What’s more, without marine insurance you may be liable for the damage or loss of other people’s goods thanks to General Average – which requires 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 prospect of only a few pounds per kilo in compensation, you will need marine cargo insurance.
