What is Transport Insurance?
Transport insurance compensates for damage that occurs when you transport goods by your own vehicle or if you have hired a carrier. With transport insurance, you receive full compensation in the event of an injury and avoid having to deal with the practicalities – regardless of who is responsible for the damage.
A transport insurance policy applies, for example, if a truck drives into a ditch, a train derails or if a ship is lost. It also applies if goods are stolen or crushed during transport, transitional storage, loading or unloading.
The purchase agreement specifies which delivery terms apply and whether the buyer or the seller is responsible for the risk during shipping and should therefore take out transport insurance.
