Insurance for UPS Shipments

UPS began as a small courier service founded by enterprising teenagers with a $100 loan. Today, UPS operates in more than 220 countries and territories, employing over 500,000 people worldwide. UPS has become a leader in transportation and logistics, offering innovative solutions to individuals and businesses of all sizes.

UPS is a very reliable carrier in the United States, Europe, and Asia. UPS is one of the best-known carriers globally, with over 500,000 employees. UPS delivers 15.6 million parcels and documents per day to more than 200 countries. The deliveries are very fast, allowing you to ship worldwide in 24-48 hours. You can ship your UPS package from an official carrier store or book the shipment online through shipping services. Most UPS deliveries include a signature upon delivery, making them compatible with Cargo Insure Online insurance.


Why Should You Use Our UPS Insurance?

Cargo Insure Online saves you up to 40% and protects all your valuable goods up to $120,000 per parcel. If you’re looking for third-party insurance, you may have noticed that UPS insurance is expensive and doesn’t cover certain items prone to theft. Additionally, the list of excluded goods is extensive.

Cargo Insure Online insures 99% of goods sold online, even the riskiest: watches, jewelry, phones, laptops, second-hand items, luxury goods, etc. We offer coverage up to $120,000, which includes full reimbursement for the value of your product in case of loss or theft. If your item is damaged in transit, our insurance will cover the repair costs or provide full compensation if it cannot be fixed. Insuring with us means you don’t need to disclose the actual value of your package to UPS (except for customs purposes). This ensures that UPS staff won’t know if there’s a valuable item inside.

Claim Management

As an online insurance company, we have a dedicated team to assist you with any issues or additional information. Our team will help you with your insurance claim to ensure you get compensated for lost or damaged goods. If something goes wrong during transit, such as delays or other issues, please open a claim within 14 days of the shipping date to ensure coverage by Cargo Insure Online.


Our coverage includes all high-risk items that are excluded or limited by UPS, such as watches, jewelry, artwork, high-tech devices, second-hand items, and collectibles, as well as standard items.


Our goal is to inform our customers of the shipping instructions that apply to the insurance policy. Before shipping your parcel, please review our instructions and contact our team if you need any assistance. UPS is a well-known carrier offering fast deliveries worldwide, but their insurance rates can be high.
