Why is it a good idea to insure your shipment?
In Belgium the liability of road transportation service providers is always limited by CMR regulations (Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road). However, in the event of a loss or damage these limitations are often not representative of the actual value of the goods. Complementing its road transportation services, DB Schenker’s Expedition Insurance (SEV) covers the full value of your goods against all risks. Customers who utilize SEV can significantly reduce the financial impact associated with these unfortunate events.

To ensure that you are entitled to the maximum coverage for damage, we advise you to fill in the correct value of your goods. This can be done very easily online when registering your shipment via the eBooking tool. Don’t hesitate because of the costs, we offer very competitive rates.
