Cargo Insurance

The seas, roads and airways can be dangerous. Despite the best efforts of our carriers, goods may be damaged in a storm or fire, stolen or involved in a collision. In such events, the only way to protect against financial loss is shipper's interest cargo insurance.

Unless the carrier is directly and clearly responsible for the damage, it will be legally absolved of responsibility entirely. Cargo insurance covers the shipper without the need to prove fault. Plus, it also pays for the costs to minimize a loss, such as legal fees, labor and damage inspections.

Western Overseas offers several insurance options. Whether you need all-risk coverage, free of particular average (FPA) or with average (WA) protection, we can help. Contact us and we can discuss which type of insurance is right for you.
