Anthony Jones are experienced insurance brokers in understanding and meeting the needs of customers moving goods around. Freight insurance or Cargo insurance as it is often called is at the centre of the transport and logistics sector and core to many of our customers.
Who needs to buy freight cover?
If you are transporting goods by any means thinking about your responsibility to insure them is essential. Shipments can become lost or damaged of course and your carrier won’t compensate you for the full value of your cargo if something happens to it. All carriers are legally obliged to carry limited cover – carrier liability. They are usually only liable to compensate you a lump sum up to a certain limit. This is why it’s important to have freight insurance to cover the full value of your shipment.
What does freight insurance cover?
Freight insurance covers your liability for cargo that is either physically lost or damaged while in transit and also whilst being stored pending transit. Goods are covered for example from damage due to loading/unloading, weather, piracy, infestation, theft or other factors causing damage. Insurance can cover goods in transit in the UK, Europe or Worldwide.
Without cargo insurance you may actually be liable for the damage or loss of other people’s goods thanks to something called General Average. Customers whose cargo survives a voyage could find themselves open to compensate others whose cargo was abandoned to protect the cargo vessel.
