Cargo Insurance

Ensure the security of your business

During transit, your cargo is exposed to various risks, despite the safety measures put in place by carriers. Damages or losses may occur during handling, storage or transport operations: this could have a serious impact on your business.

To facilitate your shipping experience, CMA CGM has developed insurance solutions for you that address these risks.
