There is always risk of loss or damage to the cargo during transport

Pohjola Cargo Insurance covers losses caused to cargo during transport, including loading or unloading. The means of transport may be involved in an accident, or the cargo may be damaged or stolen. Fire, natural disaster and temperature are also common causes of loss. The insurance also covers short-term and temporary storage related to the transport.

For example, if goods intended for sale are damaged or lost during transport, the financial loss can be considerable. The carrier is liable of the cargo during transport from the moment it takes receipt of the items until the items are delivered, but its liability is limited in accordance with laws, contracts and regulations.

For this reason, it is possible that the carrier is not liable of the loss or damage or is only liable for part of the goods value. By insuring your transports with Pohjola Cargo Insurance, you can secure your business transport risks.

Goods in transit may be carried or handled by several parties during transit. Cargo Insurance is property insurance for goods covering the entire supply chain. Our specialists will settle the claim and if necessary arrange the loss survey on your behalf.

Insured transports

Insured transports are e.g.:

  • Export and import transports
  • Transports related to sales and purchases in Finland
  • Transports between business locations
  • Subcontracted transports and maintenance, guarantee, return, repair, removal or exhibition transports

Cargo insurance can be insured by the seller or the buyer according to the sales agreement, terms of delivery or other contract in which the Insured bears the risks of loss of or damage to the goods and transports or the insured has an obligation to insure for the benefit of the other party.

War and strikes cover 

Cover against war and strikes can be added to basic or full cover by specific agreement. War cover is only valid in sea, air and mail transport.

War and strike insurance is not valid in high war risk areas unless otherwise agreed with the insurance company in advance.

The validity of insurance cover in these areas must be agreed individually for each shipment with the insurance company, and the insurance company must be contacted at least three days before the beginning of shipment. If the insurance is granted to a high war risk area, the insurance company may charge an additional premium according to the assessed level of risk.

High war risk areas refer to areas whose risk level for war or strikes is rated 3.2 or higher by the JCC Cargo Watchlist compiled by the Joint Cargo Committee. The list is published on IHS Markit’s website and is updated monthly.

The updated list of risk levels is located at JCC Cargo Watchlist.
