Insurance and Inspection
Thefts, accidents, decay and human failure are but a few of the risks your cargo is exposed to when shipping. However, as smart business men, you must have plans in place to minimize these risks and this is where an insurance policy comes into play. At Freight Solution Limited, for only a little sum of money, you get insurance cover for your goods.
Getting an insurance cover is important especially in the freight forwarding industry where the transportation of your goods is handled mostly by third parties giving you very little influence on what happens beyond when you drop it for shipping. An insurance cover means that whatever damages occur to your goods while on transit, you don’t get to suffer the consequences for it. However, our insurance cover, like all other insurance covers come with particular terms and conditions which you would do well to acquaint yourself with.
We take into account the type of cargo you are shipping, your insurance payment and the destination of the package. Our packages are based on “all risk” conditions, providing cover for your loss on shipments except for certain goods as mentioned in our list of prohibited and restricted goods.
We carry out thorough analysis of packages before we proceed to deliver them. This analysis includes quality, quantity, serial numbers, packaging and overall condition of the merchandise. This service ensures that the product arrives the final destination meeting all the required specifications. We provide pre-shipment inspection, inspection for reported claims or damages and inspection at port.
This inspection is done to ascertain what is actually being shipped, whether it is the correct product and whether it’s correctly marked. This is usually done when a first transaction with a distributor is being done especially for insurance purposes, importation requirement purposes or L/C.
Paying a vendor without actually seeing what you are paying for is a risky move therefore employing our services to inspect whatever you are expecting would be the best move for you.
Inspection for claims or damages
This inspection is done to verify the current status of the merchandise, the losses suffered and why it did. This kind of inspection is popular among trucking companies and our inspectors have the knowledge experience and freight industry education required to ensure the claim process is accurate and genuine.
Inspection at port
This inspection is common with large projects or with machines/products. The inspection is done mainly for machines used for large projects and which are being shipped in parts and the client wants a third party present during the loading/unloading phases. This service ensures that your cargo is loaded properly into the vessel without any unnecessary transportation costs, miscommunication or paperwork issues.
The documentation required of you for freight shipments depends on whether you are shipping via air or sea. Also it depends on whether you want to drop at a receiving center or have it collected. Whichever you decide on, our specialized freight team is on hand to advise you and ensure that you have all the documentation required.
The documentations below are usually required when shipping freight internationally:
This is required for air freight shipments and it is the most important document as it contains information on the shipper and delivery location.
The shipping label is attached to sea freight consignments and contains information on the sender and delivery location. This document is sent to you after you make your order.
Bill of lading
This document is required only for sea freight shipments and it requires a named party to receive the goods at the destination port. We prepare bills of lading for you which you can forward to the receiver.
The packing list is a document which contains the content and value of your goods for customs purposes. We can prepare a packing list for you and all shipping must include one.
Optional collection service
If you need your item collected, we can arrange this for you and we will email you a shipping label for the collection service and arrange a documentation if required.
Drop-off at receiving centre/Drop-off depot
If you decide to drop your parcel off at any of our sea freight receiving centers or air freight drop-off locations, we will ensure you have the required document on hand at the drop-off location.
Consolidation is a cargo shipping method in which a freight forwarder at the port of origin combines several individual consignments to make up a full container load.
