Frequently Asked Questions for Freight Forwarders Liability Insurance.
Do your freight forwarding policies only cover Freight Forwarding activities?
No. Our freight forwarding policies are able to cover many different occupations as we understand that Freight Forwarders don’t always just do Freight Forwarding. The occupations that can be covered under our wordings are. Customs Brokers, Warehouse Operators, Logistics and Transport Companies.
Can I pay my premiums by the month?
Yes. All insurance offered by Citycover can be paid by the month through premium funders. If you chose to use the premium funder’s service, your monthly instalments will be tax deductible.
Does a Freight Forwarders Liability cover Tenants Liability/General Liability (Public and Products)?
No. Citycover has access to a vast range of insurers who offer Freight Forwarders Liability. Some policies have included the Tenants Liability/General Liability and some do not. That’s why it’s important to use a specialist broker so you are being insured for the right cover.
Does a standard Public Liability policy cover what a Freight Forwarders Liability policy covers?
No. A public liability policy is not the same as a Freight Forwarders liability policy. A public liability policy covers personal injury or property damage to third parties arising from your business activities. A Freight Forwarders Liability covers liability for your customers Cargo, Fines and penalties cover, Errors and Omissions and can also include other additional covers depending on your individual risk exposures. Tenants/General Liability should be taken out in conjunction with your Freight Forwarders Liability policy if your Freight Forwarders Liability has not been extended to cover these risks.
If I’m operating my business without a Freight Forwarders liability will I be covered fully?
Each business is different and has different requirements and exposures. We would suggest talking to a specialist broker to see if you are adequately covered. However, Citycover believe that a Public Liability only policy, is not sufficient cover on its own, to ensure you are protected in all instances.
