Cargo Insurance Certificate and Document Management

The Importance of Managing Cargo Insurance Certificates

A cargo insurance certificate is a document that indicates the type and amount of insurance coverage in force on a given item. It is used to assure the consignee that insurance is provided to cover loss or damage to cargo during the shipment process. It is one of the most important documents in the shipping industry as they inherently carry the most risk.

A cargo insurance certificate usually includes the following information:

  • * Shipping information
  • * Conditions of the insurance coverage
  • * Additional / special conditions of coverage
  • * Liability of carriers, bailees, or other third parties
  • * Instructions or actions to be taken in the event of lost or damaged cargo
  • * Settlement agent contact information

Why should Cargo Insurance Certificates be managed properly?
