Cargo Insurance is an important piece of the export process to ensure that your marine cargo is protected.
Under the Carrier of Goods by Sea Act, steamship lines are essentially only responsible for the seaworthiness of the vessel, properly manning the vessel and ensuring that he vessel is safe for the transport of cargo.
The maximum liability of the ocean carrier is only $500 per unit shipped. In essence without transportation insurance, even when the Carrier is proven liable, responsibility is limited to the $500.
