Insuring Your Cargo In Transit
Like most freight forwarders we trade under Conditions of Carriage which govern our liability to our customers in the event of the loss of or damage to goods.
In our case we trade under the conditions of the British International Freight Association. This is standard industry practice and, as a responsible freight forwarder, we insure our liability under our conditions.
However, this does not mean that your goods are insured on an All Risks basis when they are in transit.
The responsibility falls on the goods owner to arrange insurance.
If you are a business importing or exporting on a regular basis, it may be that you already have an annual marine cargo insurance policy in place which will provide the cover you need.
However, if you are a private Individual, or a business shipping goods infrequently, you may need to arrange a single policy to cover one shipment.
We can now arrange that policy on your behalf.
Please ask us for an insurance quotation, and bear in mind that the payment of a small premium means that you can relax in the knowledge that your cargo is insured.
