From importing exotic fashions to exporting light fixtures, the international trade business will take you all over the world and into all product niches.
Australia’s Import and Export Market has increased significantly over the past few decades and looks set for further growth in the near future. Transporting a varied and diverse set of goods from all corners of the globe means that import and export businesses are often exposed to more complex risks than other industries. As a result, it’s even more important to obtain comprehensive insurance cover.
Importers and Exporter’s typically use a wide variety of transport methods which bring with them unique risks. From planes and trains to boats and trucks – your insurance should be just as broad.
Importing businesses should cover their goods for loss or damage throughout their entire journey. Don’t rely on the exporter at the other end to arrange transit insurance on your behalf; instead you should protect your investment with your own comprehensive cover.
If your goods are damaged or destroyed on arrival at their destination, the importer may not be obliged to pay for them, despite any terms of a letter of credit or credit guarantee. Don’t let a freight forwarder organise transit insurance for you; speak to an insurance broker and find a policy that fully covers you so you don’t end up out of pocket.
We will work closely with you to understand your business and identify the particular risks associated with your operations in order to source suitable cover at a competitive price.
