Hapag-Lloyd debuts online marine insurance offering

German containerline Hapag-Lloyd is now giving customers an online marine insurance offering direct from its own website.

Quick Cargo Insurance provides customers with tailor-made insurance offers around the clock. The insurance cover takes effect immediately upon conclusion of the contract.

“Not every cargo transported by sea is insured, yet. For instance, small and medium-sized customers often do not take out insurance for cost reasons. Our Quick Cargo Insurance proves that insurance does not have to be complicated and expensive,” commented Ralf Belusa, managing director of digital business and transformation at Hapag-Lloyd.

The insurance offering was developed in co-operation with the industrial insurer Chubb in Germany.

The ‘Quick’ moniker to the new tool follows on from Hapag-Lloyd’s Quick Quotes, an instant freight rate booking system.
