Cargo Insurance

Taking care of risks

Ask DB Schenker to arrange cargo insurance for you – the safe way to secure full payment for potentially damaged or lost goods.

DB Schenker offers you safe and reliable transport services. Yet still, there is a risk for accidents caused by nature or human error. DB Schenker and its subcontractors will help you handle any such matter.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Professional and swift claims assistance from insurers
  • Budgeting of claims costs and premiums
  • Fulfillment of cargo insurance requirements for certain banking transactions
  • Full value compensation
  • 10% imaginary profits paid in addition

Laws and conventions for transport include limitations that may reduce compensation to a certain sum per kilo. Therefore, payments may not always fully correspond to the actual total value of the cargo.

The best way to secure full value payment for damage or loss during transportation is to buy cargo insurance for the shipment. As an add-on service, DB Schenker offers such insurance for all transport modes globally.
