Cargo Insurance:

Airlift (India) Private Limited suggests its customers to protect their investment in cargo with insurance to avoid any possible risk of total or partial damage.

This policy insures approved general merchandise against risks of physical loss or damage from external causes. However, this policy does not cover all losses possible in the course of an international shipment.

Some perils typically not covered in All-Risk Policies

  • Improper packing
  • Abandonment of cargo
  • Rejection of goods by customs
  • Failure to pay or collect account
  • Inherent vice, (infestation or loss due to nature of the product itself)
  • Employee conversion or dishonesty
  • Losses due to delay or market loss
  • Goods subject to an on-deck bill of lading
  • Losses caused by temperature or pressure
  • Used goods

Sometimes, due to nature of products or shipping condition, only limited coverage can be obtained. Although FPA coverage is not as complete as "All-Risk Coverage", it is better than having no insurance at all.
