Transport & Cargo
-Transport involves the deliberate movement of goods through the coordinated interaction between manpower and means of conveyance by road, rail, water and air. Each year global cargo damage totals around 4 billion euros. According to the findings of cargo insurers virtually 70% of all claims are avoidable.
-Goods can fall off a fork-lift truck during loading. Ships, aircraft, trains and trucks are not entirely safe means of conveyance either. Furthermore, it’s not just expensive goods like consumer electronics, computers or textiles that are an invitation to thieves. Depending on the route and distance travelled, the goods may be transhipped several times between the above-mentioned means of transport or placed into temporary storage, which significantly increases the risk of damage or even loss. The liability of the carriers responsible for the transport is often too low to adequately compensate any damage you may have sustained. Protect yourself and your company against such risks.
