Henning Harders is an experienced cargo insurance broker that can arrange all your insurance requirements to protect your imported or exported cargo against damage, loss or theft. Cargo insurance covers loss and damage of goods in transit from points of origin and final destination.

Our close working relationship with underwriters ensures you receive competitive insurance rates for your specific shipments: sea, land or air. Let us manage your ocean and air marine cargo insurance and we take care of all of the paperwork involved, including certificates, reports and other documentation required. Due to our expertise, our customers have peace-of-mind that all documentation complies with the conditions of the insurance and that they are covered with the most comprehensive and cost effective policy available.

We also provide evaluation of your goods to assess the major factors and risks, advice on issues and adequacy of policy type and coverage.

We offer competitive cargo insurance for our clients to suit their specific shipments – be it sea, land or air – providing peace of mind and avoiding costly loss.

If we handle the shipment, should you make a claim on a shipping job, we can simplify and fast-track the process by providing the insurer with the necessary shipping paperwork/documents.  

 

What forms of cover should be considered by importers and exporters?

Two major forms of cover should be considered by importers and exporters:

  • A voyage policy covers cargo for a single trip described in the policy.
  • An open cargo policy - essentially a reporting form policy that covers all goods shipped or received by the insured during the term of the policy. The insured periodically pays premiums to the insurer based on reports from the insured of covered shipments. This is better suited to the needs of an insured who frequently ships or receives goods overseas. The open cargo policy also permits the insured to prepare "special policies" or certificate of insurance as may be required in ocean commerce.
