Temperatures are Rising - Is Your Cargo Protected?

Posted 06/01/2020

With summer approaching, now is the time to make sure your cargo is protected from heat damage! Our policy offers Optional Temperature Coverage (OTC), which covers losses due to extremes in temperature – overheating or freezing – for cargo shipped in insulated containers.

The safest means of avoiding a heating or freezing problem is still to ship in a temperature controlled container. However, if cost and availability of these containers is problematic, shipping in an insulated container is a prudent substitute for cargo protection!
