Cargo insurance

SCS Logistics B.V. offers additional transport insurance in addition to the standard insurance according to the CMR or AVC agreement.
Depending on your delivery terms, we estimate the risk and advise you on whether or not to insure the goods during transport. We take into account the nature of goods, method of packaging and commercial value.

Transporters are protected by law and have limited liability in the event of damage or loss.
With international transport according to the CMR conditions, your goods are insured for 8.33 SDR per kg, which is equal to approximately €10 per kg. National transport in the Netherlands takes place according to the AVC conditions and offers coverage of €3,40 per kg.

For high-quality goods with a low weight, it may therefore mean that you will not be fully compensated in the event of damage or loss under CMR / AVC conditions.
In cases like that, it is advisable to be informed about the additional transport insurance.
