Maersk teams up with Zurich to offer Maersk Cargo Insurance
Maersk has teamed up with Zurich Insurance Plc to launch Maersk Cargo Insurance, a product to protect customers’ goods against physical loss or damage.
Maersk Cargo Insurance covers goods from the time they are first moved for loading until the completion of unloading at destination, from and to almost every country in the world. Regardless of the transport or carrier used, customers can relax knowing their shipment is insured from door-to-door, and from departure to arrival.
“In line with our vision to become the global integrated container logistics company, we aim to provide our customers with a variety of solutions related to their supply chain. As another step in this direction, we are now expanding our product offering and adding cargo insurance to our portfolio which our customers are able to add to their booking seamlessly online, something that is currently not available in our industry. We are proud to be taking lead to digitally transform some of the core processes in the industry to further improve the customer experience.” – Kim Pedersen, Global Head of Logistics and Services at Maersk.
“At Zurich, we are embracing digitalization to provide customers with better and simpler services and solutions. We are excited to work with Maersk to make cargo insurance available to their customers with just a few clicks.” – Howard Kingston, Global Head of Marine, Commercial Insurance at Zurich.
