Cargo Insurance
Hurricanes often cause flash floods, which can damage roads and ports. It’s important to note that if cargo is damaged in a storm, carriers are not liable for “Acts of God” and shippers will only be reimbursed if they purchase Cargo Insurance.

 

You should also review your Cargo Insurance policy to make sure it includes a deviation clause, which provides coverage in case cargo needs to be rerouted once it is already in transit. If you are insuring goods all-risk within a warehouse, you should verify if the coverage includes the perils of earthquake, windstorms and floods.
