Protect Your Cargo
Protecting your investments is a basic necessity of the logistics process, and insuring all of the items you ship is a smart way to participate in a value added service. EWC has several cargo insurance options available including personalized cargo insurance based on the type of shipment and method of transit you choose. Let us help you decide which level of cargo insurance is right for your particular shipment.
Why Shipping Insurance
While we do everything in our power to protect the items that you ship, it is always good to have an additional safety net. Unpredictable weather conditions can lead to a problem with ocean shipping and air international transport shipments could face issues in transit. While these circumstances occur very rarely, adding cargo insurance is a good way to protect your assets in the unlikely event that something uncontrolled should go wrong.
Why would you take a risk on valuable items that will be traveling for long distances across land, ocean or by air international transport? With cargo insurance, you can feel more at ease that your items will make it safely to their destination and that you will not lose time or money over circumstances that you cannot control. Expedited World Cargo recommends cargo insurance for all shipments and can give you several options to fit your items and budget.
The Cost Savings
Being a leader in global logistics, EWC can get a much better price on cargo insurance than your company would be able to find on its own. Each insurance plan differs so we work diligently to track down the best savings in cargo insurance and pass these are savings along to you.
There are many benefits to seeking cargo insurance through one of our plans and cost is just one of the many. Allow EWC to give you the right information to help you make a smart and informed choice about the cargo insurance you need for ground, air or ocean shipping. Providing you options to afford peace of mind regarding your shipment and saving some of your money is an essential element of Expedited World Cargo’s high level of service.
Basics of Cargo Insurance
The value of items on board in ocean shipping or air international transport does not automatically determine the level of insurance. Understanding the type of cargo and what sort of insurance is specific to those items and their value lies within our company expertise. EWC representatives already know the answers to all of the questions you have about your items and are ready to advise you on the specifics of your cargo insurance situation.
Cargo insurance has three levels of basic coverage, with level A having the widest coverage and level C the most restricted. From there, items are categorized based on the type of cargo on board. For example, frozen food is a very specific type of cargo that requires specific cargo insurance. Shipments of cotton, cocoa, coffee, metals, oil seeds and tea fall under cargo insurance regulations that have been developed by The Federation of Commodity Associations. We are experts in knowing what type of cargo falls under each insurance category and what you will need in order to have adequate protection.
Cargo insurance is more involved than most consumers realize, and EWC knows the intricacies that go into the process of underwriting this important part of the shipping process. We can provide you with the right information to protect the assets of your ocean shipping cargo, as well as any cargo sent by air international transport services or ground shipping services.
