Legal Limit of Liability & InsuranceThe various limits of liability of freight carriers, the many cases of exemption from liability that benefit them create a financially intolerable situation for the shipper (or “shipper”) in case of disaster occurring during transport. Because the levels of reimbursement of the goods are incommensurate with its real value (except in case of uncapping of the liability of the carrier, a situation which intervenes only in case of gross and proven fault against it). The shipper is therefore in the unavoidable need to take out his own insurance to cover possible damage to the goods during transport and then be in a position to receive a satisfactory compensation. The only insurance that can mitigate the shortcomings of the carrier’s “third-party” insurance and offer the shipper the certainty of good compensation in the event of a claim is the ad valorem insurance. This expression means in Latin “in value” or “according to the value of things”.
According to a recent survey by the World Shipping Council (WSC), an average of 1,679 containers is lost overboard at sea every year. Given that more than 120 million containers are shipped every year, the numbers lost metaphorically reflects a ‘drop in the ocean.’ But why take the chance that your goods won’t be amongst those containers? For businesses that do suffer loss, theft or damage to their containers, it can have a huge impact on their profitability if they have insufficient insurance cover.
As they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
Beyond our legal limit of liability, and upon written request by you only, Aubertrans ensure your goods up to their real value, providing an insurance policy certificate, which is issued in house.
