If your freight is damaged in transit, are you covered? Protect it with Cargo Insurance. And now with instant quoting, you can get a single shipment quote online — get covered faster and for less!

We accept these forms of payment by Credit Card

Despite advances in shipping technology, accidents still happen. Cargo Insurance from DB Schenker protects the full invoice value of your cargo, shipping costs, insurance costs, plus an additional 10%. It’s called CIF +10% insurance, and it’s the only kind of freight insurance we offer. Considering that your carrier or freight forwarder’s liability is limited to just a set dollar amount per pound, regardless of the actual value of the loss, can you afford to go without Cargo Insurance?

Save money and hassle all year long with an Open Cargo Insurance policy

Frequent shippers can save time and expense with an annual Open Cargo Insurance (Ocean Marine Cargo Insurance) policy. Open Cargo insures your company’s shipments on set terms, conditions and rates, without the need to contact your insurance brokers or transportation carriers each time your cargo is moved. This all-risk cargo policy for marine, air, and ground transportation is the broadest form of shipping insurance. Request a quote or more info about Open Cargo Insurance.
