Value Protect

Protect your cargo from accidents like fire, theft and bad weather.

With Value Protect, your cargo is protected in a simple and smart way.

Even in the safest hands, accidents happen. When you’re moving your cargo across sea and land, you want to know that you won’t lose money if your shipment is damaged or lost. That is why Maersk offers Value Protect, giving you peace of mind that your cargo is protected against accidental damage during its journey with us.

Transportation carriers are often responsible only for the legal liability for damage caused to your goods, which may not equal the total loss of your cargo. In many cases, they may not be liable for loss or damage.

Value Protect provides extended carriage terms to the standard bill of lading that allows compensation if the loss or damage could have normally been rejected due to fire or theft. In addition, we waive the right to claim General Average contribution. With Value Protect, we offer higher recovery limits on your shipping claims within 14 days of receiving the required documentation.
