Think of it as your safety net while your goods soar across continents or seas. It shields goods on the move, the carriers, the freight forwarders and you from financial bumps caused by misfortunes during transit.
Because fortune favors the prepared. This protective layer cushions your pocket from unexpected hiccups like theft, damages, or losses during your shipment's journey. It's your financial seatbelt, ensuring you don't bear the brunt of damages.
Almost everything that moves. Land, sea, or air – be it boxed, bulked, or bottled, we've got coverage.
It's a cocktail of factors: cargo type, its value, your destination, transport means, and coverage depth. The golden rule? More valuable items typically pull a higher premium.
We safeguard against financial turbulence caused by damages, theft, natural calamities, or those pesky unpredictable events. Plus, the vessels (containers & packaging) transporting your goods. They're under the shield too.
Our coverage might sidestep war acts, terrorism, some packing faux pas, or label missteps. And certain special cargo (like hazardous materials) might play hard to get.
Simply open a claim from your dashboard and upload your documents on our 24/7 online platform.
Depending on the intricacies of the claim and the insurer's responsiveness, the process can range from a quick sprint of just a few days to several weeks for the most complex situations, where insurance experts are needed to evaluate the loss.
Besides wars and civil unrest, sometimes packaging flaws, mislabeling, or bending the rules can leave you out in the cold.
Giants like Lloyd's of London, AIG, Axa, Generali, and Zurich Insurance Group are just a few names in the galaxy of cargo underwriters. Each has its flavor, coverage nuances, and wallet impact.
