Why Do I Need Shipment Insurance?
Shipment insurance reduces the financial risks associated with the loss or damage to freight
shipments during transit. Freight shipments are more susceptible to damage, particularly if your
shipment is traveling through the LTL service.

A common misconception is that shipments are automatically insured by the carrier through their
limits of liability. The truth is, carrier liability is NOT insurance and it may not protect the full value
of your shipment. Carrier liability has limits based on the condition of the items being shipped
and the class of the freight – regardless of the actual value of the shipment.

With shipment insurance through UPS Capital you get reliable, full coverage for your shipments.
Covered losses are valued at the amount of the invoice, freight, plus 10% and the coverage applies
to any freight carrier you choose, including multi-modes of transport.
How Do I Purchase Shipment Insurance?
You can purchase shipment insurance easily online at the time you are booking your shipment through
