- RISK MITIGATION
Carrier liability insurance from Zurich Insurance Company Ltd (Switzerland), one of Europe's largest insurance companies, helps AsstrA avoid financial losses. AsstrA maintains coverage for €3M per insured event.
- BEST COST
AsstrA can insure goods on the following terms:
- All Risks: compensation for full cargo value in case of loss or recovery cost in case of damage. All Risks is generally the most efficient and reliable insurance option.
- Limited Insurance: compensation for cargo loss or damage resulting directly from so-called qualifying cases.
Cargo insurance covers:
- Loading and unloading at the shipper’s and recipient’s warehouses
- Warehousing during transit
The insurance policy defines the Beneficiary as any party, e.g. the cargo owner, who is interested in the safety of cargo and should receive compensation in case of its damage or loss. At your request, AsstrA can use a “to order” note to insure cargo without naming the Beneficiary, thereby making any eventual indemnity payable to the party bearing the risk at the moment of any cargo damage.
- INSURANCE RATES
Basic insurance premiums are usually 0.25% - 0.35% of the cargo invoice value. The total proposed premium depends on cargo value, type, packing, itinerary, and several other factors like scope of delivery. There is also special pricing available to loyal AsstrA customers. As a rule, the deductible (the portion of the loss not covered by insurance) is zero, meaning that even minimal losses will be compensated by the insurer.
- INSURANCE OPTIONS
Your cargo can be insured under one of the three following options:
1. At 110% invoice cargo value,
2. At invoice cargo value + freight,
3. At 110% invoice cargo value + freight.
We provide transport insurance for all modes of transport and any combinations thereof.
