Small business owners QUESTIONS regarding
Importers & Exporters Business Insurance ANSWERED:*

Goods are damaged, lost or stolen in transit everyday so it is vital that you are appropriately insured.

It is possible to obtain protection for import and export shipments with marine cargo insurance; which is sometimes also known as Cargo Insurance, Aviation insurance, Transit insuranceFreight insurance and Carriers insurance.

Are you confident your goods shipments may already be suitably covered by the freight forwarding company or the other party to your transaction?

While some freight forwarding companies offer insurance, many limit their liability on the weight of the cargo. This ‘contingent’ insurance regularly results in a substantially lower payment than the value of loss. The process of claiming can also be drawn out.

The purpose of Marine Cargo Insurance is to repay you for the full dollar value of your shipment if the goods you are importing or exporting are damaged, lost or stolen in transit by air, sea or land.

Similarly; obtaining full dollar value goods from the other party to your import export transaction can often be problematic.
