Carriers legally have limited liability riddled with exceptions when it comes to cargo damage. This limits the customer to accepting something other than actual insurance coverage often resulting in a long claim process and receiving a payment that is a fraction of the actual loss.
STG Shield is a first-party policy protecting your goods for up to their stated value in the event of physical loss or damage in transit.
The base door to door domestic insurance coverage is $10,000 with zero deductible. STG Shield responds regardless of shipper’s ability to prove carrier’s negligence, pays for losses outside carrier’s control and it pays full value of lost or damaged goods.
The pick up location has to be an STG location for the shipment to be covered. In regards to IPI shipments, coverage is from an STG location to another STG location.
If the shipment ends at any of the locations specified in the document below, insurance coverage is valid.
