What is cargo insurance and why do you need it in the transportation of your goods?
It is the law for all carriers to provide a minimum amount of insurance. However, carrier liability provides very limited cargo insurance coverage and in an unforeseen event such as natural disasters or in-transit accidents, shippers can be prepared and request full cargo insurance to protect their shipments for loss, theft or damage.
In recent years, there have been a number of unforeseen circumstances arising in the global transportation of goods.
