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

Protect goods in transit both in the UK and worldwide with Marine Cargo Insurance cover. A separate Marine Cargo Insurance policy is imperative if a business or individual requires full value cover of their goods whilst in transportation.

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

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

Take out Marine Cargo Insurance Coverage so you can be confident that you have full cover value on your goods in transit, wherever they may be in the world.

Who Needs Marine Cargo Insurance?

If you are transporting goods overseas you need marine cargo insurance coverage. 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 believe that the carrier will compensate you for the full value of your goods or belongings in the event of damage. 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 as little as £1,300 per tonne!

What’s more, without marine cargo insurance cover 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 cover.

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