Why All-Risk Insurance?

Under the Carmack Amendment, carriers have a legal financial responsibility to their customers when goods are lost or damaged, but only in certain circumstances, and only up to a certain amount. The Limited Liability coverage provided through your carrier will only reimburse damage or loss up to $100 in most cases for individual parcels, or for cents on the pound of the total weight for larger freight shipments—and only when you, the shipper, can prove a loss was directly attributable to carrier negligence.

Whether you typically ship through major parcel carriers, or traffic larger shipments in LTL or FTL volumes via freight carriers, the common limits and restrictions through your carrier’s Limited Liability Insurance amounts to a significant amount of risk and financial loss for the shipper, and has potential for lasting consequences — not just from a monetary standpoint, but from a relationship standpoint as well.
