Why is cargo insurance so important?

Kuehne + Nagel are proud to have an outstanding record on lost or damaged goods.  Our legacy as a 123 year old company is testament to our ability to deliver what we promise, when we promise.  However, there are dangers beyond the control of any logistics organisation; fire, theft, weather hazards, terrorism, derailment, to name a few, that could jeopardise your goods.

The carrier is liable only if all 3 following conditions are met:
1. the damage/loss of goods happened in the carrier’s custody
2. it was impossible to avoid
3. the liability is not excluded under international conventions
