Why do I need a transport insurance?

We want to spare you money and nerves, which is why we want to show you, why it is worth to cover freight insurance for your shipment.

Limited Liability for Sea- Air- & Landtransports


No matter what happens to your goods – be it theft, damage, or loss – who will assume liability? Ordinarily, it is seldom the carrier, as they only in rare cases assume liability for damages or loss of your rail, air, truck, or sea freight. Even if the goods are damaged by humidity or collisions, the liability will not be assumed.

Calculate transport insurances - the exception

However, there is one exception when calculating your transport insurance. We divide insurance into three classes, with the last class being special goods, e.g. from the area of ​​dangerous goods. From weapons, ammunition to highly toxic chemical products, everything that we cannot calculate automatically can be found in this product group. For these goods, we will create an offer tailored to your needs and send it to you by email. In this way, we minimize sources of problems and can also properly insure complex goods.
 

We need the following information for the calculation of an insurance

  • Loading and unloading location
  • Goods class
  • Value of goods
  • Loading date
  • Shipping type (container, pallet, etc.)
  • 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.
