Logistics industry: protecting worldwide transport
The transport of goods on water, land and in the air is an essential part of global commerce. As globalisation progresses, logistics is becoming increasingly important and complex. If a load is lost or damaged because of an accident, it is not just the reputation but also quickly the existence of a transport company that is threatened.
Shipping companies, port operators and forwarding agents are responsible for the organisation, the prompt processing and the safety of the transported goods over the entire transport route. A carrier’s liability insurance is therefore the focus of every insurance solution for logistics providers. It covers both the damage to goods, e.g. due to loss or damage during transport, and the professional indemnity, e.g. due to failure to meet a delivery deadline, organisational errors or misconduct on the part of employees. Since its founding over 140 years ago, Funk has worked closely with the transport industry and is very familiar with the insurance of specific transport risks.
