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.
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, 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.
All this can lead to high financial loss, which we would like to spare you. This is why we highly recommend you, to cover a rail, truck, air, or sea freight insurance. The expenses for this mostly pay off, as the costs are relatively low. You can cover your rail, truck, air, or sea freight insurance right on our platform and, thereby, ensure a carefree shipment of your goods.
