HAPAG-LLOYD ENTERS MARINE INSURANCE SECTOR

One of the leading container carriers in the Middle East market, Hapag-Lloyd is now offering its customers an online marine insurance service through its website. Quick Cargo Insurance provides customers with tailor-made insurance offered around the clock, with cover taking effect immediately upon conclusion of the contract.

Hapag-Lloyd draws attention to the fact that not all cargo transported by sea is insured as small and medium-sized customers often do not take out insurance for cost reasons. “Quick Cargo Insurance proves that insurance does not have to be complicated and expensive,” explains Ralf Belusa, Managing Director Digital Business & Transformation at Hapag-Lloyd. “With just a few clicks, the customer can select and take out his insurance benefits. All contract documents are available immediately, so the load can be insured quickly and in a non-bureaucratic way.”

Quick Cargo Insurance has been developed by Hapag-Lloyd in co-operation with the industrial insurer, Chubb, in Germany.
