In this day and age, some might be wondering why incur additional expenses by purchasing cargo insurance. All it does is to eat into profits. However, in times of uncertainty, when unexpected events are on rise, you do not want to sustain losses due to damaged or lost goods. As such, these are some compelling reasons to purchase cargo insurance:
It is an international practice that losses due to accidents will be split equally among all parties. Hence, there may be times whereby you are required to pay a bond/ deposit for the release of your cargo, even if there are no losses or damages to your goods. In these events, the insurance company can assume responsibility and help to speed up the process to ensure the timely arrival of your cargo
Cargo insurance can help by mitigating losses by ensuring that value of the merchandises being shipped are covered. This could reduce the burden for business owners during times of unfortunate events and ensure their businesses survival.
Depending on the terms defined in the contract, the exporter or importer may be held responsible for purchasing cargo insurance before the goods are sent over.
By law, most carriers are not held accountable for losses due to certain acts, such as Acts of God or terrorism. And in instances that they are, carriers often have limited liability. Hence, the financial losses are mainly shouldered by the exporter or importer, depending on the terms stated in the contract. As such, it is crucial to have cargo insurance to cover you when unfortunate events occur to provide a financial peace of mind.
Rates may be higher for new or small business with little to no track records of shipping as insurance companies may view your company as a riskier business. However, private companies can often provide specialized insurance plans if you are shipping over any odd or unique cargo.
