When booking a shipment, your goods are not automatically insured. This is why TCI Carriers strongly advises to take an insurance policy for the transportation of your goods.
Continuous transport insurance
Fortunately, TCI Carriers offers a continuous transport insurance. For a small additional fee per shipment, you can make use of this insurance. This gives you the coverage you need for both national and international shipments. If you wish to make use of our insurance, it is very important to inform us in writing in advance.
Liability insurance is not the same thing
The transporter always has a liability insurance. However, this is not the same thing as transport insurance. The liability insurance will only pay out if the transporter is indeed the one responsible for the damage. Payment is based on weight and/or volume, which means that the payment you receive, might be considerably lower than the actual value of the damaged goods.
The Incoterms are not sufficient
The Incoterms are insufficient to fully cover the risk of damaged or lost property. Incoterms determine when liability is assigned to the various parties involved. It is advisable to customize your transport insurance based on the applicable Incoterms. We are happy to tell you more about our insurance, so please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email.
TCI Carriers strongly advises to insure your valued goods during the transport. In this way, damages to your goods as well as containers and supplies are covered against damages inflicted during the shipments. It is advisable to attune your insurance to the employed Incoterm.
