Warehouse & Freight Forwarding Insurance
The insurance arrangement for freight forwarding and warehousing businesses is controlled by the conditions under which they operate. Most freight forwarders operate under the conditions of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) and Warehousemen under the conditions of the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA).
The insurers prefer that their clients use these conditions as they set out the basis on which the work is undertaken which very often limits the liability of the freight forwarder or the warehouseman. Many of the clauses in the conditions have been tested in court.
Contact our experienced team who will advise you on the best warehousing and freight forwarding insurance cover. We will arrange a special policy to protect your liabilities as the standard public liability insurance will exclude any liability to property in your custody or control. We can extend the cover to provide protection for errors and omissions such as sending goods to the wrong destination.
