Why you should make sure your freight is adequately insured

Minimise risks with transport insurance

With over 160 years of freight forwarding experience, it is a matter of course for us as global logistics specialists to always transport your goods securely and with the utmost care – regardless of which mode of transport is used and where you want your goods delivered to.

However, there are risks that are beyond our control when it comes to transportation. Various events may result in serious damage or loss:

  • Storms
  • Flooding
  • Fire
  • Theft
  • Piracy
  • Accidents at sea
  • Strikes
  • Unrest
  • Hijacking

Not many customers know that the liability of freight forwarders is limited or even sometimes excluded in the event of damage. It’s only damage and loss caused by demonstrable negligence that fall under a financially limited framework. At the same time, damage can increase beyond measure – for example, if there is a major accident and the costs of all lost and damaged cargo and any repair costs for the ship are to be borne proportionately.
