Single Trip Cargo Insurance Coverage

All-Risk Coverage

Our All-Risk Coverage is designed to provide broad protection for your cargo, safeguarding it against virtually all physical loss or damage from external causes. This comprehensive coverage ensures that unless specifically excluded, any damage or loss during the insured trip is covered. Standard exclusions typically include losses from improper packing, inherent vice (natural decay), and customary losses like wear and tear or leakage. This coverage is ideal for clients seeking extensive protection to mitigate diverse risks associated with cargo transportation.

Named Perils Coverage

For those requiring specific, targeted coverage, our Named Perils Coverage offers protection against pre-defined risks. This policy covers only those perils explicitly listed in the contract, such as:

  • Theft: Ensures compensation in the event of burglary or robbery during transit.
  • Collision: Covers damages to cargo resulting from a collision involving the transporting vehicle.
  • Natural Disasters: Protects against losses from natural events like earthquakes, floods, or storms. This option is cost-effective for clients who want to insure their cargo against the most likely risks during transit, based on their unique understanding of the routes and risks involved.

Additional Options

To further enhance your cargo insurance, we offer several additional options that can be tailored to your specific needs:

  • Loading/Unloading Coverage: Protects your cargo against damage that might occur while it is being loaded onto or unloaded from the conveyance. This is particularly crucial for delicate or heavy goods where the risk of damage during handling is higher.
  • Theft During Transit: While named perils coverage includes theft, you can opt for this additional safeguard to cover scenarios like pilferage or non-delivery.
  • Temporary Storage Coverage: If your cargo needs to be stored at any point during transit, this coverage ensures it remains protected against loss or damage during the storage period. This is vital for long-distance or international shipments requiring interim stops.
