Insurance

ProCargo understands the substantial value you place on your international shipments.

Damaging weather conditions, rough handling by carriers, and other common hazards to cargo make insurance an important protection. Depending on the international commercial terms, either the supplier (the exporter) or the buyer (the importer) is at risk for the cargo in transit. Without insurance, an exporter/importer could have no recourse. Marine Cargo Insurance is essentially ‘transportation insurance’, since its scope covers all movements of cargo by all modes & means of transport, where there is a contract of carriage.

Marine Insurance is required by Importers, Exporters or by anyone who stands to lose financially if the goods are damaged or lost.

ProCargo has in-house insurance coverage, and can offer various types of insurance plans for the assurance and safety of your cargo.
