Our cargo insurance provides protection against loss or damage to freight from any external cause during shipping and transportation, regardless of it being by land, sea or air.
As a business involved in importing, exporting or UK sending of goods, it is recommended that you have the correct Cargo Insurance in place. This Insurance gives you full cover for your goods in the event of a loss, whether transported by road, sea, air or rail, and we are here to highlight the top five reasons to make sure this cover is in place.
With Insurer expertise inhouse, we can work with you to understand your business and tailor the policy to suit your needs. Whether you ship CIF, FOB or Ex. Works, and whether you send by land, sea or air, we can get your cover set up swiftly.
Cargo Insurance gives you full ‘All Risks’ cover for the goods, as opposed to relying on a carrier’s insurance which may be for a restricted financial liability (e.g. RHA £1,300 per tonne) and only covers the Carriers legal liability, i.e. damage that they are liable for and not acts of God.

|All modes of transport including road, rail, air – whether third party or your own company vehicles|
|Access to your specialist Account Handler for any queries or policy alterations|
