Shipsurance, previously Discount Shipping Insurance (DSI), is a private shipping insurance provider.
We provide coverage for shipments sent via the major shipping carriers at a greatly reduced rate;
often more than 90% off of the carrier rates. Think of us more as a business partner than a shipping insurance vendor.
We work with you as your claims management department.
Shipsurance was initially created to fill the need of complete open peril coverage in the freight market.
A member of our board of directors has been in the freight industry for 25 years and indicated that there was a real lack of coverage.
Just as quickly we realized that the small parcel carriers also lacked true, fair coverage for the masses.
Shipsurance is now a full service provider of shipping insurance for the small parcels and large cargo shipping market. We also enable the occasional shipper to insure a shipment immediately via our
website here .
We are underwritten by Lloyds of London. Lloyds is 'A' rated by multiple sources.
The shipping carriers are in the business of transporting goods and they usually do quite a good job.
However, the inevitable lost or damaged parcels do occur as the law of averages pertains to everything.
That is where we step in. Instead of relying on declared value protection from the shipping carriers,
parcels are insured with Shipsurance. We work with you on a claim by claim basis to make sure they are resolved
in a timely manner. Our paperless claims management system allows our policy holders to file claims
electronically and attach any pertinent information to the claim. The entire claims process can be
tracked online and you will be alerted once a claim has been approved and payment has been remitted.
Shipsurance also covers many commodities that the shipping carriers will not. We cover artwork, antiques, fragile goods,
As a Shipsurance policy holder, you will have coverage for all of your small parcels shipments as well as your large,
common carrier shipments.
We provide personalized customer service and rapid claims handling,
with parcel claims paid within days, not months.
Outsourcing your claims management to an insurance professional will save you time and money and allow you to focus on your core business.
