    What is goods in transit cover (GIT)?

    At IC Insurance, we specialise in insurance for couriers and hauliers.

    Goods in transit insurance, sometimes referred to as GIT insurance or freight liability insurance, covers goods against loss or damage while being moved from one place to another. It provides cover for goods being carried by individuals in their own vehicles, self-employed drivers or contractors or by third party carriers. As the name suggests it covers the goods in transit, while they are being taken from one location to another, not while they are in depots or awaiting collection.

    Do I need goods in transit cover?

    While there is no legal requirement to have goods in transit insurance cover, it must be viewed as an important aspect of your insurance as items can be stolen, broken or lost while on the move. Any business that offers removal services, courier services or delivery services should consider GIT cover because of this.  Some of our other covers include Goods in Transit cover as standard, therefore you will find that it can be included within our ice cream van insurance, HGV and Truck insurance, courier insurance and more.

    Delivering goods in Europe and CMR Insurance?

    CMR insurance is a legal requirement for UK couriers and hauliers carrying goods within any of the EU states which have signed up to the CMR convention. CMR is an international agreement that contains the rights and obligations of parties involved in road transport: the shipper, carrier, and addressee. As specialist goods in transit insurance brokers, IC Insurance can look for the best level of GIT Insurance for you and your business, which includes CMR insurance should it be a requirement.
