Taking the complexity out of insurance and the risk out of shipping.

As the world economy continues to expand, so does the volume and complexity of international cargo shipments. Schenker offers a comprehensive range of products specifically designed to meet the changing needs of today’s sophisticated cargo shippers. Through Schenker’s risk management solutions, our brokers and underwriters obtain coverage for your shipments in a prompt manner anywhere in the world.

For a complete door-to-door insurance solution, we also offer:

OPEN Cargo Insurance is an all risk cargo policy which is the broadest form of shipping insurance. An open cargo policy automatically insures your company’s shipments on set terms, conditions and rates without the need to contact your insurance brokers or transportation carriers each time your cargo is moved.

Warehouse Insurance: An open cargo insurance policy can extend to goods stored during the normal course of transit. High-limit specific warehouse coverage may be added as well. This can also include flood, windstorm or earthquake coverage as required.

Domestic Transportation Insurance: Domestic transit coverage can be added to cover all shipments within each individual country, whether by motor truck, railroad, aircraft, barge or package service.

Why choose Schenker?
