Export & Import Insurance Advantage

Standard International Covers
The export import policy provides the international covers defined under Institute Cargo Clauses (ICC). The covers called ICC (A), ICC (B) and ICC (C) clauses cover different levels of risks and are universally understood. The insurance plan covers Perils like fire, lightning, stranding, grounding, sinking or capsizing of vessel, earthquake and many more, under these clauses. Maritime, Extraneous and Strike perils can also be covered under the export import insurance policy.
Clear Loss Assessment
The export import insurance follows standard internationally accepted principles of total and average loss while estimating the loss value. The total loss can arise when the subject matter is destroyed or lost forever or the damage is so extensive that it is uneconomical to repair the same. Average loss occurs when a part of the subject matter is damaged.
Several Policy Types
You can opt between different export import policies like specific, open and duty policy according to your requirement. The specific policy is issued for a specific transit and the insurance expires once the transit is over. Open Policy covers all the shipments over a period. Duty policy covers custom duty incurred in case of import. Sales Turnover insurance provide an umbrella cover within a specific sales turnover limit. The export import insurance policies are easy to administer and covers raw material and finished goods.
Fast Covernote Issuance
Generally, it takes anywhere from 1 to 3 days to get a covernote in an export import insurance. But we use portals to do this within hours of instruction. The covernote can also include bill invoice and LC details for the sake of completion.

Why Claims Get Rejected?

Uncovered Perils

Typical examples include goods damaged during unloading and loading or while in storage; damage due to labour strike; and earthquake related damage. These perils can be covered if the Export Import insurance is placed properly.

Inherent Vice

This refers to damage caused by a product’s instability rather than external factors. For example coal tends to self-combust, some oils solidify, and paper can disintegrate. Inherent Vice is generally excluded but a discussion with experts like us can give a clear sense of how to reduce Inherent Vice risks.

Inadequate Packaging

Claims are often rejected if packaging material was sub-standard or not customary. This can be contentious in claim settlement. A good practice is to declare packaging upfront and agree with the insurer that this is sufficient.
