Goods in transit insurance, sometimes called GIT, is insurance that covers items from theft, loss, or damage while they are being carried from one place to another in the course of business. The goods in transit insurance can cover both domestic and international shipping depending on the country's regulations and the insurance policy.
Goods in transit insurance include the protection of your van, truck, or lorry and the goods you are carrying inside your vehicle. If you are a courier or in the haulage industry, having goods in transit insurance will provide peace of mind in case you or your customer’s materials, goods, or cargo are lost, stolen, or damaged during transit.
“Goods in transit insurance” is not regular parcel insurance. Indeed, the goods are only covered while being in transit and not while they are in the vehicle at a depot.
Moreover, it must be understood that “goods in transit insurance” only covers the contents of your vehicle and does not replace van insurance or HGV insurance you have for the vehicle itself.
