As the world economy continues to expand, so does the volume and complexity of international cargo shipments. DB Schenker USA offers a comprehensive range of products specifically designed to meet the changing needs of today’s sophisticated cargo shippers. Through DB Schenker’s Risk Solutions, our global insurance underwriters obtain coverage for your shipments in a prompt manner anywhere in the world and guide you through the process of understanding and purchasing insurance.

Because we are one of the world’s largest logistics companies with well-established contacts in the insurance industry, we can offer a wide range of insurance solutions to best fit your transportation needs:

Open Cargo Insurance (Ocean Marine Cargo Insurance) is an all-risk cargo policy for marine, air, and ground transportation, and is the broadest form of shipping insurance. An open cargo policy automatically insures your company’s shipments on set terms, conditions and rates without the need to contact your insurance brokers or transportation carriers each time that your cargo is moved.

Warehouse Insurance covers your goods during storage. An open cargo insurance policy can extend to goods stored during the normal course of transit. High-limit specific warehouse coverage may be added, as well, which can include flood, windstorm or earthquake coverage, as required.

Domestic Transportation Insurance will cover your international trade goods as they move within a single country. Domestic transit coverage can be added to cover all shipments within each individual country, whether by motor truck, rail, aircraft, barge or package service.
