Legally, all carriers must carry a minimum amount of insurance, known as carrier liability. However, carrier liability provides very limited coverage, and any unexpected or unforeseeable events can happen and may lead to loss or damage of your cargo.

ACS believes that properly insuring freight, in conjunction with good physical risk management, is an important way to manage the financial impact of loss or damage. We know that each client’s needs are different, so we work closely with risk managers and brokers to offer custom insurance coverage, backed up by flexible underwriting and fast claims handling, we will generate accurate insurance documentation, monitor premium assessment and provide appropriate cost budgets and vessel insurance manuals. Additional services include whether by Air, Sea or Land.
