Most insurance policies offer comprehensive damage cover, however, they may not cover all the specifics. These include:

  • Special freight: Your insurance may not cover any hazardous cargo, specific electronic devices, and other expensive or delicate things.
  • Modes of transportation: Some policies will only cover your freight depending on the type of transportation mode you use. (sea, land, air etc.)
  • Damaged by poor packaging: Your insurance company might not cover any damage to your goods if they’re linked to poor freight packaging.
  • Flawed products: You might not be covered for cargo damage that could be caused by faulty products in your package.

So before you choose an insurance type, remember to check with your insurance company first.
