Cargo insurance for safe transports

We handle about 24 million shipments each year. Nonetheless,  damage and losses may occur through unfortunate circumstances. If the accident occurs, we recommend that you sign cargo insurance so that you can quickly receive full compensation.

How to sign up for cargo insurance

  • Indicate when booking that the item should be insured.
  • Specify the insurance value, that is the item's value including freight costs plus 10 percent commercial profit.
  • Our case managers can inform you about premiums.
  • We report to the insurance company and charge for the premium.
  • Please provide a standing order for cargo insurance so that all products in transit are insured.

What does it cost?
You can calculate the insurance value by adding the product value + the total freight costs + 10 percent commercial profit. This amount is the basis for the premium. For land transports within Sweden, the premium is 290 SEK for a maximum value up to SEK 400,000.

Liability is limited through laws

Depending on which transport means is used, liability for damage and losses is limited through laws and liability provisions, for example NSAB 2015.
In the event of ship accidents, the clause for general average applies (all product owners share the costs of damages). Exceptions for liability for general average include fire and earthquakes.
