We highly recommend that all shipments be insured. Cargo is at risk for many reasons, and without “all risk” insurance coverage, you are not adequately protected, as carriers limit their liability substantially.
In addition, under maritime law, if the vessel on which your goods are transported is damaged and “General Average” is declared, you will share in the cost of repairs. In addition, your cargo will not be released without a deposit.
We offer cargo insurance through our Lloyd’s of London agent, providing our clients the best possible coverage from warehouse to warehouse at very competitive rates. Local claims agents ensure prompt settlement of claims.
