Transport Insurance for International Trade
TRANSPORT INSURANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADE
A specialist cargo insurance broker will find you a good price, ensure the cover suites your needs and help you with claims.
Some banks offer cargo insurance as part of a finance package. You can also ask your freight forwarder for a quote, but research suggests that their cost and service don't match those offered by specialist broker.
You need to be aware that carriers, freight forwarders or third- party service suppliers will not automatically insure goods that are under their care and control. They can only do so if instructed in writing.
This applies to freight forwarders and others who provide insurance of goods in transit.
