We deliberately wish to avoid becoming a global player. We nevertheless provide our customers with personal support across all national borders on many continents. As an insurance broker with a historically grown, traditionally strong focus on the international freight transport segment, international business is nothing new to us. We have spent decades dealing with insurers, institutions and selected partners all over the world on a daily basis.
As a Lloyds Open Market Correspondent, yet another important facility with a network access for our customers is available to us at all times in the form of the British insurance market.
Further focus areas of our international activities are in South America, in the Baltic States (Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia), as well as in Russia, Ukraine and the Mediterranean.
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.
One of the focus areas of our transport business is insuring the transport of fresh fruit.
Thanks to our many years’ experience in this field, we have acquired expertise that is recognised by both our customers and the insurers. We have gained global recognition thanks to our customised open cover, our claims handling and our constant willingness to support our customers with our expertise and experience. It goes without saying that we are able to arrange surveys of cargo damage in any port in the world at very short notice. We are also available to provide our customers with help and advice if they have any questions regarding loss prevention.
