Shippers and logistics providers that book ocean container shipments through INTTRA can now buy cargo insurance on its platform through a link with FP Marine Risks.
INTTRA said the link with FP Marine Risks gives shippers the ability to integrate the purchase of cargo insurance into their shipping workflow — automating and streamlining the insurance buying process and eliminating duplicate, error-prone data entry.
Insurance certificates are issued online and serviced by FP Marine Risks, an independent marine insurance broker with Lloyd’s of London.
Coverage offered through FP Marine Risks is door-to-door and includes protection against “all risks” for the full cargo value — including freight charges.
FP Marine Risks offers coverage for all types of cargo, including more than 12,000 codes from the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS codes), shipments to high-risk areas, and options for additional storage coverage before or after arrival at destination.
