The New BlueGrace Cargo Insurance Program, Powered By UPS

ups_BlueShipHeader

Adding cargo insurance provides maximum protection. With minimal hassle.

Get all-inclusive coverage for your cargo — in one easy step.

Now, the BlueGrace® Logistics Cargo Insurance Program, brokered by UPS Capital Insurance Agency, Inc., extends transactional cargo insurance coverage to domestic LTL and air freight shipments. No matter which carrier you select.

If you think you’re already covered by carrier liability, think again.

Simply put, the laws and contractual terms carriers operate under are designed to alleviate their responsibility for your cargo. You’ll need to prove their legal liability in order to recover any losses. Even if liability is proven, the payment you’ll receive is nominal — often as little as $0.50 per pound. The BlueGrace Cargo Insurance Program is real insurance, not carrier liability. So if something does happen to your cargo, you’ll be glad your goods are covered.

Think of it as protection for what matters most. Your reputation.

When goods arrive late or damaged, or don’t arrive at all, the consequences can be devastating to your brand’s reputation, and your company’s bottom line. And, it can take a lot of new sales to make up for just one bottom-line loss.

Assuming a company makes a 6% profit margin on its goods…

And loses $75,000 in a cargo theft incident…

It would take $1.25 million in new sales to recover the loss of those goods.
