Many of our customers believe that the carrier or steam ship line that moves their goods will automatically cover them with insurance for loss or damages.

This is not the case, road transport companies generally hold a limited coverage however ocean transport is not covered unless you the cargo owner arrange insurance coverage.

It should never be assumed that another party has made the necessary arrangements for you and expect that your goods are automatically insured on an ‘all-risks’ basis whilst in transit or in third party storage.

Under Maritime Law shipping companies tend to operate under Conditions of Carriage which limit their liability in cases of loss, damage or delay.

We strongly recommend you take out insurance against loss, damage or delay in transit and will be happy to assist you in arranging coverage.

We work with only the best companies, to ensure that, should your cargo be damaged, the service, speed and professionalism in which your claim is handled and settled is second to none.
