DHL expands cargo insurance service

April 28 - DHL Global Forwarding has expanded its 'all-risks' Cargo Insurance service to Ghana, Kenya, Morocco and Mozambique bringing the number of countries now covered to 74.

"With DHL Cargo Insurance we are offering our customers an opportunity to minimise potential impact of unforeseen external events. Our scale means we can arrange coverage between almost any country in the world and for any type of cargo including specialist, high risk or high-value goods. By continuously expanding our service we can support our customers where they operate, even in emerging and high-risk markets," says Angelos Orfanos, global head of marketing & sales, DHL Global Forwarding.

DHL Cargo Insurance is developed by DHL's in-house Insurance & Risk Management group and underwritten by a major global insurer. The service can be arranged as an annual policy to cover all the shipments transported with DHL Global Forwarding, or on ad hoc basis per shipment when booking an air, ocean road or rail freight shipment. In detail, the insurer's policy covers the full commercial value of customers' goods as well as the transportation costs proportional to the loss or damage and additional 10 percent of the goods value and freight.
