Freight Forwarders Liability insurance
The role of the freight forwarder is to make arrangements which enable goods to travel from seller to buyer. This often involves a journey of several thousand miles, using more than one mode of transport.
When a freight forwarder is entrusted with someone else’s goods, they become legally responsible for taking all the necessary steps to protect and preserve that consignment. This means the forwarder is liable to the owner for any subsequent damage or loss.
To protect themselves against risks, forwarders can take out insurance to help cover any compensation they may become liable for. Wilsons understand the insurance requirements for freight forwarders whether within the UK or internationally.
