Forwarder’s liability insurance
Forwarder’s liability insurance is suitable for businesses engaged in freight forwarding, transport and storage operations. A freight forwarder’s contract may include various duties related to goods transport, such as:
- transport, storage, loading, unloading of cargo and customs clearance
- assisting the client in the preparation of export and customs documents
- advice on issues related to transport and distribution.
The forwarder’s liability for damages is based on the contract signed with the client. Forwarder’s insurance covers liability for damages under the NSAB regulations.
Although NSAB regulations limit the forwarder’s liability in both scope and extent, the amount of damages may still be considerably high in the event of a loss. If you are engaged in forwarding operations, it is essential that you have valid liability insurance that covers damages to handled goods.
