Cargo Protection Made Easy

CFL recently issued the following Advisory to our Clients regarding the automatic application of Cargo Insurance protection beginning in time for the Peak Season.

As valued Customer we would like to inform you that effective immediately, CFL will automatically apply cargo insurance protection of US$10,000 for Dry Containers at a Premium of US$50.00 per Container and US$15,000 of protection for Reefer Containers at a Premium of US$70.00 per Container.

Please note you have the option to decline the Insurance coverage but with the current supply chain logistics conditions, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this Value Added Service for your Cargo especially during the Peak Season. 

If you wish to decline, you can submit the Waiver Form so the Insurance cost & protection is not applied to your shipments.

You also have the ability to purchase additional Insurance coverage should the value of your Dry or Reefer shipment exceed the above values.

Feel free to reach out to your local CFL representative if you have any questions.

Thank you for your continued support!

The Peak Shipping Season Is On!

October traditionally begins the Peak Season for shipping cargo.

In a message to the Trade, CFL’s CEO, David Ross encouraged Clients to get ahead of the Peak by shipping cargo now.

“Nothing is usual this year and our efforts to alert Clients and encourage them to ship NOW is in full swing already.  Space, Equipment, Trucking, Rail, Ports are all challenging to say the least. The earlier the shipping process starts the better” said Ross.

With transit times being stretched by the various headwinds facing Shippers, it’s important to note that we are less than 90 days from Christmas Day and typically Clients want products on the shelf ready for sale at least by mid-November or before so you can see time is of the essence.”

CFL has been meeting and working with the Carriers, Truckers and Terminal Operators in order to streamline the flow of Containers, Delivery and extra hours if necessary to allow the movement of cargo to go forward uninterrupted.  CFL has 48 Agents and Offices Globally and offers service from North America, Asia, Europe, Central / South America and the Caribbean.
