Shipment Insurance

Shipment Insurance

Shipment insurance is a form of protection that safeguards goods during transit, offering coverage against loss, damage, or theft while in transport. It provides financial compensation to the shipper or recipient should the goods suffer any of these unfortunate events during shipping. Shipment insurance can encompass a range of risks such as accidents, natural disasters, theft, or mishandling by carriers.

Depending on the specifics of the insurance policy, coverage may extend from the moment the goods are collected by the carrier until they reach their final destination. By mitigating the financial risks associated with shipping valuable or delicate items, shipment insurance provides reassurance to both shippers and recipients.
