Each freight bill is different, so selecting the right coverage for your needs is an important decision. Not sure what you need? No problem. Our team can help you determine the best insurance coverage.

Types of Coverage:

  • Standard Cargo: Is an “All-Risk” coverage and protects against loss or damage. This coverage is used for most items such as artwork, furniture, new electronics, or machinery.
  • JSO (Job Service Order): Is for packing only, either in a corrugated box or crate and for local pickup and delivery. No coverage while items are transported by common carrier.
  • Limited Liability (also known as Lost Only): Is for customer-packed goods. Doesn’t cover concealed or visible damage to items. Coverage will protect your items in the event of theft or disappearance of full container or entire shipment.
