Cargo insurance protects shippers from financial loss due to damaged or lost shipments. It pays out the amount shippers are insured for if an unexpected event happens while the freight is in transit.
Before you can get a quote, you need to have the necessary information to enter that will ensure the quote is accurate and the pickup can be made without any problems.
You need to provide the zip codes and addresses of the pickup and delivery locations, as well as the type of places they are. Noting whether a location is residential or commercial helps carriers know what they will need to successfully complete the shipment.
Cargo insurance coverages include shipment transportation via water, air, road, and rail. Exclusions include items with inherent vice, latent defects, or improper packaging.
A bill of lading is a document of title, a contract between shipper and carrier, and a receipt for services. A delivery order only facilitates the release of cargo by formally advising the carrier that all obligations have been settled and the appointed agent or consignee can now secure the cargo.
Proof of delivery (POD) documents accompany shipments and deliveries, and are signed by the consignee upon the delivery of the shipment once all the undamaged items are accounted for.
