What Is Inland Transit Insurance?​

Inland Transit Insurance covers damage, theft, and loss of your goods while they’re being shipped on the road. 

Inland Transit Insurance covers you for the following shipping stages:

  • Packing of goods
  • Loading of goods
  • Transportation of goods on road
  • Unloading of goods
  • Unpacking of goods

As you can see, Inland Transit Insurance provides end-to-end coverage for your goods. This policy provides protection from the time they’re being packed, to the time they’re delivered to the customer.

What are the different types of Inland Transit cover?

There are two kinds of Inland Transit policies that you can have:

Single-Shipment Cover: This is a policy that provides coverage for one specific shipment. For instance, if you’re moving a set of heavy machinery from Jurong to Changi, and are only needing coverage for this one-time move, then this policy would suit you well.

Annual Cover: This is a policy that provides coverage for unlimited shipments. This type of policy is great for businesses that will be performing multiple goods shipments every year. Logistics businesses would do well with an annual policy. You can increase the policy coverage amount at any time if you end up shipping more goods than expected.

Do I need Inland Transit Insurance?

Inland Transit cover is useful if you do any of the following:

  • Deliver goods to customers in Singapore

  • Transport equipment or machinery to clients

  • You engage a third-party logistics firm to move your items for you

  • You move high-value goods, like jewellery, gold, branded clothing, expensive watches, etc.

Inland Transit Insurance is essential if you operate a logistics business that involves moving other people’s goods around. It’s also important if you need to ship your goods around Singapore, but have engaged another logistics company to help you move. This way, you can be sure that your goods are protected just in case your mover damages or loses them.

How much coverage do I need?

You should insure the value of the goods you’re transporting. It’s important not to under-insure your goods. If any damage occurs to your goods while they’re travelling on the road, and they are under-insured, you won’t be able to receive adequate compensation for your loss.

Should I buy Inland Transit Insurance from my logistics provider, or should I buy my own policy?

It’s always cheaper to purchase your own Inland Transit Insurance. If you get Inland Transit Insurance from your moving company, it is likely that you will pay an additional margin on top of the insurance premium. Speak with us to get your own Inland Transit cover, so you can save yourself money!

Besides Inland Transit coverage, what other types of business insurance should I have?

We’ve established that Inland Transit Insurance covers your goods while they’re being shipped on the road. It’s a good idea to combine some other policies with Inland Transit Insurance:

Marine Cargo InsuranceThis covers goods that are being shipped outside of Singapore. This covers items being shipped from Singapore to elsewhere, or goods shipped from other countries into Singapore. You can even cover goods that don’t transit through Singapore. This policy protects you from damage/loss to your items. Despite its nautical-sounding name, this policy doesn’t just cover ship-based freight. It covers goods that are shipped via sea, air, and land.

Bailees Liability Insurance: If you’re shipping goods that belong to someone else, you’ll need Bailees Liability cover. This protects you from liability if you damage these goods that you’re responsible for.
