Cargo Insurance

Cargo Insurance

Without cargo insurance, any claim for loss or damage is strictly limited by international treaties, US Federal Laws and the shipment contract as stated on the back of the air waybill.

Amerijet offers an easy and affordable option to have peace of mind: air cargo insurance underwritten by Seven Seas Insurance Company, Inc.

  • Accidents happen. You have the option to protect your investment by choosing an insured air waybill. In the unfortunate event of a loss, your cargo is protected against all risk of physical loss or damage from any external cause.
