Cargo insurance


The company members of IFA offer you cargo insurance.  This provides you with the best way to ensure full compensation of the value of the cargo in case of eventual damages or losses.


The logistics companies from the freight forwarders network perform cargo transportation observing all safety requirements for the cargo.  The goods are transported with suitable transportation means, depending on the type of goods being forwarded.  But, even though it is very rare, some kind of damage or loss can occur during the loading, reloading and unloading processes.  The cargo insurance offer full compensation for the losses in case of eventual incidents and losses.


The laws and conventions which are applicable to the international freight forwarding include limitations which can decrease the compensations in case of incidents.  This is why the payments in such cases may not fully reflect the full value of the damaged or lost cargo. Payments in such cases may not reflect the complete value of the cargo. With the cargo insurance, you ensure that you get a full payment for your goods in case of damages and losses during the forwarding.
