Trans Global highly recommends that you take Marine Insurance coverage for your cargo.
Marine cargo insurance is a critical part of the international shipping industry. Our insurance rates are very competitive and a premium rate can be provided to you based on your specific needs.
Trans Global can arrange complete door to door, port to door or port to port marine insurance coverage for your cargo against: damages or loss.
Before deciding that Marine insurance coverage is not needed, you should be aware that the maximum liability for any steamship line as per the COGSA (Carriage of Goods by Sea Act) is $500 or as per the terms and conditions of the Bill of Lading.
Some insurance companies (such as USAA) have marine coverage within your current policy. We suggest that you contact your insurance company and to see if marine coverage is included within your policy or if they can provide it to you.
Trans Global will be happy to provide you with a premium rate upon request.
