Becoming a Bailee
Warehouse insurance covers your business as a bailee, an organization entrusted with the belongings of another business or client. This means that if anything happens to damage property during storage, packaging, cross-docking, labeling, or any other service offered, the insurance covers it. It also covers the loss of an item. It differs from cargo insurance, which covers the items while in transit by plane, train, or automobile.
Coverage of Items in Transit
The logistics component covers your transit of goods. This component of the insurance package covers your liability. While you can purchase warehouse and logistics coverage separately, we recommend bundling them to cover your business completely.
The liability coverage provided by the logistics component includes accidents caused by negligence as well as damaged cargo. This provides separate coverage from your commercial auto or trucking insurance.
