Cargo Insurance

Liability for goods being transported by a third-party carrier is assumed by the carrier under a Bill of Lading or Shipping Contract. The owner of the goods; however, may want to ensure property is protected in the event of loss or damage, or shortcomings in the carrier’s insurance. The carrier may only be liable for loss or damage caused by negligence, and not for circumstances beyond their control. Your Bill of Lading or Shipping Contract will outline who is responsible for what, and to what extent.

A cargo insurance policy protects your interest in your property, and can be purchased for a single shipment or on an annual basis, if shipments happen regularly.
