uShip has added Cargo Insurance to its existing trust and safety products, making uShip an even safer place to ship. Now, when booking a shipment, shipping customers get $2500 in all-risk cargo insurance on qualified shipments.
And here’s the best part: it won’t cost customers a dime — uShip is covering the cost of the first $2500. Shipping customers can augment coverage for an additional fee at a great rates.
Most service providers offer some form of insurance. In fact, carriers are required by the government to carry a minimum amount of basic insurance. However, carriers can set lower than usual limits on their own liability, and not all insurance covers all items.
So if a shipping customer is shipping a large quantity of valuable goods, they may wish to pay for additional insurance can help protect their valuables and goods in transport, giving them greater assurance in uShip. But this decision is entirely up to the customer.
This insurance is an “all-risk” Shipper’s Interest” policy. Unlike Motor Truck Cargo/Carrier’s Liability Insurance, Shipper’s Interest insurance provides coverage for the direct physical loss or damage to the cargo, not the Carrier’s Liability. This means a faster payout made directly to the customer, eliminating the hassle of dealing directly with the carrier’s insurance company.
The addition of cargo insurance, along with uShip Payments (secure online payments), fraud protection, verified and feedback-rated carriers, and the uShip Guarantee, make uShip the safest way to move goods. Customers continually rate service providers 98% positive, far above the industry average.
uShip’s cargo insurance is offered by Lloyd’s of London through Roanoke Trade and McGriff, Seibels & Williams.
