KLEOS insurance: goods in transit insurance

Insurance broker, specialists in risk management and general insurance

Services in goods in transit insurance and general insurance

SUARDIAZ Group offers insurance brokering services specialising in transporting goods and general insurance policies. We understand the options available on the market and we advise our clients so that they can choose the most appropriate policy for each project.

Our solutions are customised because we believe that peace of mind is the most important factor for any business and this can only be achieved by personalising the service. In the goods in transit department, we design a risk map for the entire logistics process to identify the characteristics of the policy: insurance for cargo, the hull, P&I, civil liability, damage to materials, professional civil liability, maritime civil liability, lines of credit, D&O, cyber, etc.

We seek the best coverage among prestigious insurers so that the cargo is protected (Institute Cargo Clauses (A) and Institute Hull Clauses), and also the machinery in the event of breakdown and the business itself from third-party claims for damages caused to goods or people.

At SUARDIAZ Group, we understand the risks and our experience enables us to offer our clients personalised advice so that they can choose a goods in transit policy or other policies they may need.

Types of goods in transit insurance

Goods in transit and logistics insurance policies can be categorised by considering three variables:

  • Means of transportation used: maritime, waterway, air and land by road or rail.
  • Insurance coverage: basic to cover the simplest damage, expanded to add an additional risk or fully-comprehensive to cover any damage or loss (except those mentioned expressly).
  • Policy: goods, machinery, warehouses, civil liability, etc.

There are policies with standard, common and compulsory clauses, but the value of the goods must also be taken into consideration in order to establish the cost of the premiums and potential claims.

How do I contract goods in transit insurance?

The first thing is to find out what type of insurance is needed for each logistics project. Next, identify the different insurers that offer that coverage and compare them to decide which modality is best. The client can do this themselves or use an insurance consulting, such as KLEOS, to save time looking for policies.

Once the quote has been requested and it has been confirmed that the goods in transit insurance that the chosen insurer is offering covers the risk map designed, it only remains to sign the contract, pay the premium and take note of the renewal date or expiry date.

Benefits of contracting a KLEOS insurance broker

Choosing the best insurance can get complicated, which is why having an expert broker has several advantages. The main benefit is having someone specialised because it can save time and money when it comes to choosing the best goods in transit insurance policy, as they know how to easily distinguish the most suitable offers from those that cover something that you may not need. This also avoids accepting conditions that are unclear or insufficient.

An insurance broker is the company representative dealing with the insurer, so they take care of managing the contracts as well as claims and renewals, and also proposing new options that are more beneficial.

Why contract KLEOS insurance services?

Through KLEOS, SUARDIAZ Group offers a consulting service to identify the insurance coverage needed for each project. It presents the best insurers to its clients, keeping current legislation and certain characteristics in mind, as well as any risk that needs to be taken into account in order to establish the premium.
