There are many risks associated with doing business in the global marketplace, that’s why appropriate insurance is necessary to manage the risk of global transportation. BGI Worldwide Logistics works closely with underwriters to provide flexible, customizable global import cargo insurance and transportation coverage. Whether you chose our broadest “all-risk” coverage or a tailored insurance policy built to suit individual shipments, BGI can handle your export freight insurance needs.
A Carrier’s Standard Cargo Liability Insurance is limited to:
• International or domestic air cargo: $20.00 per kilogram
• Domestic truck and rail transportation: $0.50 per pound
• Ocean freight: $500 per bill of lading
If your shipments exceed the standard cargo liability limit, we recommend that you purchase additional insurance coverage, known as Shipper’s Interest Coverage. BGI always recommends that you purchase Shipper’s Interest coverage for the full value of your shipment. Talk to BGI about the best insurance options for you and to also purchase any needed coverage.
