Who needs cargo insurance?

Just about every entity that imports or exports raw materials, semi-finished goods, finished goods, long lead material or sells a portion of finished products abroad needs cargo insurance. The list includes, but is not limited to, manufacturers, retailers, and import and export traders. The goal when purchasing insurance coverage is to cover the financial exposure during cargo transit, keeping in mind that many carriers only maintain the minimal requirements as governed.

What is covered?

Cargo insurance protects every shipment through each leg of the voyage, from the point of departure or the seller’s warehouse to arrival at the consignee’s warehouse. Whether the transit is by land, sea, or air, coverage is continuous and includes, if needed, related warehousing—anywhere in the world.
