Cargo Insurance
Order the service now!
Many entrepreneurs who are just starting to use the services of road or container transportation over long distances refuse cargo insurance. Such disregard for the offers of the insurance company is explained by the fact that premiums must be paid immediately, and the insured event may not occur at the time of delivery.

It is impossible to count on the fact that the goods will be delivered on time and in excellent condition, even in the case of cooperation with the best carrier. During transportation, there are always risks that are not related to transport or logistics - weather conditions, natural disasters or unforeseen circumstances.

The cost of cargo insurance is significantly lower than possible negative income from its loss or damage. It is better to use the offer of the insurance company. In the case of foreign economic activity, customs does not allow goods to cross the border without an insurance contract.

Main types of cargo insurance

Cargo insurance services are essential for all entrepreneurs and manufacturers who import or export goods on a regular basis. The contract is concluded for regular shipments or for a separate batch. Marline specialists will help with insurance of any cargo, including dangerous and highly valuable goods.

Depending on the specifics of the product and the method of shipment, each client can choose a standard package or individual offer with special conditions. As a rule, the customer chooses the list of risks for an insurance program for full or partial cost on his own:
Deviation from deadlines.
Damage to the goods.
Force majeure circumstances.

Why do you need insurance for foreign economic activity

Some goods (hazardous to the environment) are subject to compulsory liability insurance. If something happens to the goods, the cargo insurance contract will cover the customer's losses, as well as compensate for damage to the environment.
In the case of import or export outside Ukraine, cargos are loaded, transported, stored, customs cleared, unloaded. Anything can happen at any of the stages. A well-drafted contract begins to be effective immediately after the goods are handed over to the transport company employees and until they are unloaded at the recipient's warehouse.
There is a standardized list of insured events that is used in international practice. It is this list that Marline experts take into account when preparing a unique insurance policy for your cargo. Paying for insurance will protect your business from financial losses and will allow you to compensate for negative incomes in case of unforeseen circumstances.
