Arbour Shipping handles every shipment with the utmost care and attention. Part of our service is the availability of professional advice on dangers and risks during transit and storage. It is a primary obligation under every international sale of goods contracts that either the seller or the buyer will have to arrange adequate insurance for the goods in accordance with the agreed shipment terms (INCOTERMS).
Cargo may be exposed to risks specific to the mode of transport and the route taken, as well as perils beyond the reasonable control of all parties to the contract, for instance:
- Armed robbery
- Storm, flood and other weather hazards
- Washing overboard in heavy sea
- General Average Claims (sea freight)
