Why should you insure your cargo? Consider the following:

  • Cargo Insurance provides coverage that the carriers don’t. The carrier does not insure your cargo, and their liability may be less than the value of your goods;
  • Laws and convention for transports include limitation that may reduce compensation to a certain sum per kilo. Therefore, payments may not always fully correspond to actual value of the cargo;
  • Full value compensation;
  • 10% imaginary profits paid in addition;
  • If you are exporting FOB or importing CIF at which point are you responsible to insure the cargo?
  • Professional and swift claim assistance through our broker, Transwold Asig;
  • If your shipment is insured locally, claims are paid more readily.
