Contingent Cargo

When acting as a property broker, the contract of carriage (bill of lading) is issued directly from the underlying asset-based carrier to the cargo owner. As such, the asset-based carrier is first in line for cargo loss and damage claims. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for the carrier’s motor truck cargo policy to fail to pay the claim for various reasons. In this event, the cargo owner will often sue the property broker in an effort to collect on their claim. The property broker can benefit from having a Contingent Cargo policy in place which will defend against the claim and pay settlements per the terms of the policy if ultimately ruled against your company.

Errors and Omissions Policies

As transportation professionals, you are liable for improper performance of, or the failure to perform your professional services, including your activities as a property broker, domestic freight forwarder, international freight forwarder, NVOCC, warehouseman, air freight forwarder or other. If a customer files a claim against your company alleging damages, this policy will pay for the legal defense (independent of the deductible) as well as any settlement awarded as per the policy terms. Some of the most common types of claims include: failure to follow client instructions, delay caused by negligence of an employee, negligent selection of subcontractors, improper quotation of charges, incorrect document preparation, unauthorized release of goods, misdirection, failure to properly clear goods upon entry, incorrect classification of goods and failure to insure cargo when instructed to do so.

Contingent Auto Liability

Contingent Auto Liability Insurance protects you in the event a motor carrier that you've arranged has Auto Liability Insurance insufficient to cover an auto accident involving bodily injury or property damage. This may occur because of inadequate limits of insurance, the policy has been voided, cancelled or suspended, the policy was bogus or illegal, or the insurer of the policy is insolvent. Legal precedent has been set holding the domestic forwarder/property broker liable in such cases.
