An all-risk cargo insurance policy is the most comprehensive shipping insurance available. Any physical loss/damage from any external cause will be covered under this policy, and any exclusion not covered will be listed on the policy. These exclusions can be added to the policy as an additional clause. An annual open cargo policy automatically insures your shipments on set terms, conditions, and rates without the need to contact your insurance broker or company. Learn more about the different types of shipping insurance.
In regards to warehouse coverage, an annual all-risk shipping policy extends to goods temporarily stored during normal course of transit. However, if the goods are stored outside the normal course of transit, like an importer’s warehouse before shipment to customer, warehouse coverage must be added to insure the goods.
Domestic cargo insurance coverage pertains to goods on a bill of lading that were split during the normal course of transit and continued to separate end destinations.
When the terms of sale include insurance coverage up to the title transfer of goods, the buyer may purchase additional insurance from the provider known as a contingency policy. A contingency policy will provide insurance coverage for the goods once the title has transferred and the goods are no longer covered under the seller’s insurance policy. If goods are damaged upon arrival to the buyer and the title has transferred, the policy would pay the damage and the buyer’s insurance company would subrogate against the seller’s insurance. TRG Marine™ can write contingency policies.
Basis of Valuation CIF + 10% or 110% Valuation means the standard valuation for both annual volume reporting and payment of cargo insurance claims, unless otherwise requested, is 110%. The total premium owed is calculated using the policy rate times 110% of the total cost of goods. Any covered losses are paid at 110% of the cost of goods, including freight and insurance premium of the shipment less deductible amount.
