The transported goods contract covers all damage to new and/or used, prepared, wrapped or packaged goods that come under the transport contract, intended for shipment and entrusted to professional transport companies or transport organisers.
This goods insurance contract offers wider-scope guarantees than those offered by the widely used General Terms & Conditions drafted by the FFSA (French Federation of Insurance Companies).
The contract only offers one set of General Terms & Conditions:
- For all shipments entrusted by the insured party to a professional transport company, including the postal authorities, regardless of the means of transport used (maritime, air, land, river).
- Applicable worldwide.
- Option: “own account transport” coverage.
This type of contract is aimed at:
- Companies that own goods and sell, purchase, export or import.
- Transport organisers who receive an express order to provide insurance.
These organisers are “freight forwarders” and take out what is known as “third-party loader” insurance policies.
