Cargo Insurance — Frequently Asked Questions

Why is cargo insurance needed?

Carriers offer minimal protection if cargo is lost or damaged. That is why shippers choose to add cargo insurance to fully protect their goods while in transit. Without cargo insurance, your company is at risk for a substantial loss in goods if an incident should happen resulting in a major impact to your bottom line. Cargo insurance helps to mitigate these risks and provide peace of mind.

How does cargo insurance work?

Cargo insurance provides extensive coverage against all risks of loss or damage of goods during transit by air, truck, or ocean. Under the policy, your shipment is covered for damages due to events such as infestation, cargo abandonment, and customs rejection. If damage or loss occurs, Mach 1 Cargo Protect will compensate the cargo insurance policy holder for the value of their goods.

What does cargo insurance cover?

Cargo insurance provided by Mach 1 Cargo Protect is written for 110% of the CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight) value of the goods. You can rest assured that your interests are fully protected under our extensive cargo insurance policy.
