It is important to be aware that you have minimal coverage in place when transporting your cargo. Freight Forwarders and Carriers are not liable for full damages or losses. 

To make sure you do not suffer any loss in case of damage or lost cargo, we advise to arrange for your own insurance coverage. Without this, in worst case, it can lead to shipments not being covered appropriately, if at all. The last 5 years we see an increase in cargo claims, mainly due to an increase in marine traffic and global trade, supply chain events and extreme weather conditions.
