Canadian Cargo Insurance

The risk of loss or damage to freight in transit adjusts based on the perils of heavy weather, theft and rough handling. It is estimated that about 30% of all freight damage in transit is unavoidable. 

As a result of our relationship with our insurance partner, Gallagher Insurance, we offer services for cargo insurance to protect your financial interest. Our insurance program provides protection against all risks of physical loss or damage from any external factor during shipping by land, sea or air.

We will handle all paperwork associated with securing insurance, expediting the claims process for you from start to finish. In the event of a cargo claim, the team at Welke will guide you through the process to document the conditions of the cargo on delivery. 

As transportation specialists, Welke knows the specifics of each shipping transaction, and we are in the best position to arrange coverage when required. 

Remember - the risks of transporting cargo are the owner's and not the carrier's. Don't allow yourself to be caught unprepared.
