How does it work?

Ocean cargo provides broad coverage that includes damages caused by stranding, sinking, fire, collision, theft, and severe weather. It automatically covers goods shipped by air or sea, from the start of the shipment from the warehouse to the destination point as well as the transits by rail and trucks used between the two points. Optional coverages are also available to protect against damage or loss to your property that results from collision, loading and unloading, and mechanical breakdown.
