Carrier’s Standard Cargo Liability Insurance is limited to:

  • International or domestic air cargo: $20.00 per kilogram
  • Domestic truck and rail freight transportation : $0.50 per pound
  • Ocean freight: $500 per bill of lading

If your shipments exceed the standard cargo liability limit, BGI recommends that you purchase additional insurance coverage known as Shipper’s Interest Coverage for the full value of your shipment.

Talk to BGI about the best insurance options for you and to purchase any needed coverage. It is up to each shipper to request such coverage and declare the value to be covered. You can purchase this coverage from BGI or your own provider.
