Insurance expertise at your fingertips

Online, specialist cargo insurance solution transforms the purchase of freight cover. 

Whether you’re a freight forwarder, a goods owner moving general cargo or your car or household goods whilst emigrating, Freightcover’s recently upgraded website makes the whole process a whole lot easier.

As an online brand of A&B Insurance, Freightcover has been operating for over ten years. Its website is regularly reviewed and updated to ensure a simplified user journey and second-to-none functionality.

Mark Evans, marine account manager at Freightcover, says: “Our new look website enables clients – whether Freight Forwarders or general shippers – to secure insurance for general items online, as well as download all documentation and make a claim. However, if cargo falls outside our extensive list of ‘standard’ items, we always advise contacting a member of the Freightcover team. Their expertise ensures that the policy purchased is fit for purpose.”

With general customers able to access insurance quotes without creating an account, freight forwarders are given password-protected login details to receive the benefits offered to freight clients. Mark Evans continues: “We are totally committed to supporting the needs of the freight industry and can offer extensive commercial cover, including freight liability which is a requirement for membership of trade associations such as BIFA. If a customer springs something new on us, we do everything in our power to adapt or extend our service to accommodate their needs.

“Uniquely in the industry, we also offer freight forwarders a 15% discount on all premiums booked via Freightcover, enabling them to generate income from each shipment insured.”

Whilst details of a claim can be completed on the simplified website, cases are still managed by the company’s dedicated and expert claims team, who then liaise directly with the client to provide updates on progress and work to achieve an equitable resolution.

Mark adds: “The experience of A&B Insurance as a specialist marine cargo insurance broker has enabled Freightcover to simplify often complex insurance business into an easy-to-use online portal which fits into the day-to-day processes of a freight forwarder. Transforming the purchase of insurance, Freightcover is all about helping get the job done efficiently and effectively.”
