International Express Shipping (IES) offers Marine Insurance. We provide full coverage Marine Insurance at competitive rates based on the value of your shipment. This covers you against any major damage or loss to your shipment while the shipping vessel (with your cargo laden on board) is on the water. This has a deductible of $500.00.
With Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO) vehicle shipments, no goods are permitted in vehicles; and therefore only the vehicle would be insured.
With shared or exclusive container shipments, personal goods are allowed to be packed in the vehicle and in the container but the goods are not insurable against any damage. The personal goods will be insured against total loss only. The vehicle will be insured for damage and or total loss but will not be insured against damage that is caused by goods packed in the vehicle. For the personal goods to be covered, you will need an itemized packing list of the goods packed in each box and a total count of the boxes and their value. You also need to include the vehicle’s VIN # on the packing list. This itemized list must be attached to the original Title, presented and signed for at the terminal when the goods are delivered.
Exclusive containers must be packed and loaded by a professional packing & loading company.
With exclusive containers that are self-loaded by the customer, Marine Insurance would only cover total loss.
Total loss cover is when the container is lost or mishandled and the goods in the container are deemed to be damaged to the extent that they cannot be recovered or repaired.
