Flexible Parcel Multi-Carrier Coverage
Even if you use multiple carriers, you can still insure all your small package shipments under one simple policy.
Insure shipments from multiple carriers under one simplified policy.
If you use multiple carriers, managing several insurance policies can end up being time-consuming, expensive and just plain ineffective. With Flexible Parcel Multi-Carrier Coverage, you can insure all your small package shipments under one simple policy, regardless of your approved transportation carrier(s). There are no upfront costs or premiums. You just choose which shipments to insure and their insurable values and pay as you go. And since your shipping and insurance are seamlessly integrated, your insured values are automatically captured when your shipping information is submitted.
Features you can count on with every level of coverage.
