There are two basic types of insurance regarding transportation of goods: the liability insurance of a carrier and the insurance of transported goods itself. You can rely on Rotterdam Overseas Network as well as our selected partners to have a proper liability insurance in place.
However this does not mean that any damages, losses or thefts are covered by these insurances. Also the liability of the Beneficiary Cargo Owner (BCO) is not covered without the specific coverage of a transport insurance, for example in case General Average is being declared by the vessel owners.
All in all more then enough reasons for us to recommend our clients to properly insure the transported goods itself, in order to minimize financial risks and to avoid cumbersome claim processes.
If required we can arrange such insurance for you by utilizing our Global Insurance Policy. This enables us to activate the transport insurance and all related documentation in a swift manner against attractive prices.
Insurance of transported goods is only arranged upon specific written request from our customer, please contact us to find out more about our transport insurance services.
