The cargo insurance plays a very important role within the scope of international transport projects and contractual agreements on the basis of international regulations. The client/carrier can buy an insurance in advance from own insurance partner or consult the insurance provider of the freight forwarder. It remains unaffected that the carrier and the freight forwarder must always have their own insurance cover in order to ensure the legal liability (Basis for it is our AGB (General Terms and Conditions) on the basis of ADSp 2017 “German Freight Forwarders Standard Terms and Conditions”).
With our partner OSKAR SCHUNCK GmbH & Co. KG (Insurance agent), we offer you major benefits with so-called WorldCover-Plus, which you can buy in advance from us.
“The cargo insurance begins as soon as the item is removed from the site, at which it has been stored, until now, in accordance with the transport contract. The insurance ends at the place of destination, which was determined by the consignee (place designated for delivery). Within the framework of cargo insurance, the “All Risk Cover” is valid. On special request, additional inclusions of insurance cover or also the form of cover “Limited cover” is selected. The provision of cargo insurance takes place with the conclusion of transport contract with agreement. Insurance coverage and premiums are thus exceedingly attractive.” (Source: http://www.schunck.de/Downloads/Schunck_Flyer_Transportversicherung_A17-0124_LAY01.pdf)
