All Risk Coverage

Comprehensive all risk coverage is the most widely favored choice among freight forwarders and logistics service providers,  offering a robust safeguard against an extensive array of perils or risks that might lead to cargo loss or damage.

This inclusive option typically encompasses risks such as theft, accidents or mishandling damage, fire, natural disasters, and various other unforeseen events that could potentially result in cargo loss or damage.

However, it is crucial to bear in mind that the term “all-risk” does not imply coverage for every conceivable risk. The policy usually specifies certain exclusions and limitations, which may include intentional damage, inherent vice (the natural characteristics or qualities of the cargo that may cause its deterioration), improper packaging, delay, or loss of market. Our licensed insurance agents are happy to work with you to ensure your policy adequately protects your business.

Free of Particular Average (FPA) Insurance

In contrast with all risk coverage, free of particular average (FPA) insurance tends to be more limited in scope, covering losses caused by perils or accidents that are significant in nature, such as a ship sinking, grounding, or collision.

FPA insurance does not cover partial losses or minor damages that are considered minor. The term “free of particular average” implies that the coverage will only apply to losses exceeding a certain threshold or specific percentage as stated in the insurance policy.


Businesses may choose between FPA and all risk coverages based on their specific needs, the nature of the cargo being transported, and their risk tolerance. It’s a good idea to consult with one of the licensed insurance agents at Magaya Insurance Services for a personalized policy review.

1. Is cargo insurance enough? Or is there other insurance coverage needed by freight forwarders and logistics providers?

As a logistics service provider like a freight forwarder, NVOCC, 3PL, warehouse operator, or customs broker, you likely require other types of insurance coverage to adequately protect your business. For instance:

  • Bonds and Surety: If you handle cargo shipping to or from the United States, bonds are required by the Federal Maritime Commission.
  • Commercial Automotive Insurance: Any vehicles used for commercial use, like trucks, cargo vans, or other specialized vehicles, need to be protected with commercial automotive insurance.
  • Commercial Property Insurance: Protect your warehouse and office space from perils such as fire, theft, natural disasters, and more.
  • Directors and Officers Insurance: Directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance safeguards your directors or officers from personal claims made against them relating to their business decisions. 
  • Errors and Omissions Insurance: Errors and omissions (E&O) insurance protects your business in the event a client holds you accountable for a poorly provided service or for any service you were unable to provide.
  • Liability Insurance: Liability insurance provides financial protection to you and your business in the event you are ever held legally responsible for causing harm or damage to someone else. 
  • Workers’ Compensation Insurance: Workers’ compensation insurance, more commonly referred to as known as workers’ comp or workman’s comp, provides benefits to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses.
2. Does cargo insurance expire?

The duration of cargo insurance coverage varies depending on the specific policy and the terms agreed upon by the policyholder and the insurance provider.

3. How do I file a cargo insurance claim?

If cargo is lost or damaged during transit, the policyholder can file a claim to receive compensation for their losses or damages.
