Why is cargo insurance so important?

During transportation, goods are exposed to the risk of unexpected events beyond reasonable control (fire, explosion, theft, general average, storm or other weather hazards) which might negatively affect your core business. Irrespectively of whether transport is via road, rail, air or sea, the carriers liability is always limited – usually per kilo. Local and international law, as well as conventions governing your contracts of carriage, often exclude, or at least, limit the compensation claims available to you. 

Limitation of liability (loss/damage)

International rules limit or exempt the freight forwarder's liability for damage or loss of goods. Insuring goods in transit is the best solution to protect you from financial loss as the freight forwarder's liability cannot be expected to cover the loss in respect of cargo value.
