Cargo Insurance Canada

Cargo Insurance

Your shipments are constantly on the move and are being handled at warehouses, loaded on trucks, containers and aircraft.

There are therefore constant risks of loss or damage. No matter how much care you devote to packaging your goods and despite our constant concern to provide safe warehouses and carriers, loss and damages may occur in transportation.

Some of the risks that your shipment is exposed to are:

  • partial or total loss
  • shipment astray
  • pilferage
  • breakage
  • damages
  • shipping line general average

Common carriers offer limited and conditional liability this varies from country to country therefore exposing your company to uncertain and complicated claims to say the least.

Having your vendor/shipper insure your goods is not always a good idea, as obviously he will give priority to his insurance cost as opposed to your interests. You will also need to file a claim with his insurance company in his country.

Alpha Commerce International offers insurance coverage in Canada for your import/export shipments. Your insurance claim is prepared and filed by us, sparing you from the complexities and headaches of dealing with various carriers and underwriters. And it is paid to you in Canada, not in another country.

Again, peace of mind is what we provide.
