If you are a company which charges a fee for freight or cargo shipping or manages its own international transport, you will need cover for freight movement.

• the accuracy of the description of the goods
• failure to warn (and the proper loading) of goods which may pollute other goods
• un-declared goods of a dangerous or detrimental nature.
