Cargo insurance

We handle you cargo always reliably with the utmost care. But let’s be honest. There is always a risk of loss or damage caused by natural disasters or human errors.

We and our subcontractors help you handle such matters e.g. with professional and swift claim assistance from insurers.

However, laws and transport conventions include limitations that may reduce compensation to a certain sum per kilo. Therefore, payments may not always fully correspond to the actual total value of your cargo.

The best way to secure full value payment for damage or loss during transportation is to buy cargo insurance for the shipment. We would be happy to consult with you on possible insurance solutions – just to be on the safe side.
