What is cargo insurance?

Cargo insurance is coverage for your shipment from pickup to delivery, across multiple carriers and modes. It covers the purchase value (not retail value) of your goods, as well as freight and other costs associated with the cargo.

Flexport highly recommends purchasing cargo insurance for your freight to protect yourself from unexpected high costs resulting from damage to or loss of your cargo.
