Insurance

The Warsaw convention places limits on carrier liability for loss or damage to goods in transit. We strongly recommend that you obtain a cargo insurance policy for all your freight shipments.

You can arrange insurance cover independently or we are happy to do this on your behalf. AussieFreight does not personally underwrite insurance claims but uses the services of a specialist cargo insurance company. As a guide to premiums you should allow just over 5% of the declared value of the consignment.

It is important to specify a door-to-door policy not just a freight policy. This will cover ground transport and handling incidents.

Note that insurance does not cover pre-existing damage or damage that occurs due to inadequate packing of a container.
