Single trip transportation insurance

Single trip transportation insurance is a type of insurance specifically designed for protection during a one-time transportation delivery. This type of insurance is particularly useful when you are transporting valuable or delicate goods that require special attention and protection.

An important aspect of obtaining single trip transportation insurance is stating the correct value of the transported goods. An inaccurate value statement can result in not receiving full compensation for damages. It is therefore advisable to carefully estimate the value of the transported goods and discuss any uncertainties with the insurer.

No matter what happens to your goods – be it theft, damage, or loss – who will assume liability?

Even if the goods are damaged by humidity or collisions, the liability will not be assumed.

  • Shipping route (air, sea freight, land, rail transport)



Good Packaging Does Not Make Up for Not Covering Insurance


To hold the believe that good packaging can make up for not covering rail, train, truck, air, or sea freight insurance is a misbelieve. Although, packaging is very important to the process of shipping, there are still many risk factors to be considered. Good packaging does of course help prevent your goods from being damaged by outside influences. Nevertheless, it cannot prevent all damages or even loss of your cargo.

Incoterms Agreement


Incoterms, which have been introduced by the ICC (International Chamber of Commerce), arrange the delivery terms and, therefore, the duties of the buyer and seller. There, insurance is mostly excluded by the terms. Still, there are exceptions, which are e.g. the CIP (Carriage Insurance Paid) and the CIF (Cost Insurance Freight). Both of these delivery terms presuppose sea freight insurance to be covered. Thus, one should be sure to cover this insurance to not violate the agreed upon terms.
