Insuring your freight
As members of the Road Haulage Association (RHA) we adhere to the RHA’s ‘Conditions of Carriage’. This means our standard level freight is £1,300 per tonne (the RHA industry standard), ensuring a maximum of £1.30 is awarded for every kilogram of freight lost or damaged during transport.
How to avoid freight damage or loss
Less than 1% of freight transported through the Fortec Distribution Network is damaged or lost, and we are committed to bringing this figure down even further.
Damage can be prevented if freight is not overloaded and if goods are packaged correctly and anchored to the pallet correctly.
We do provide additional coverage for international freight distribution, known as CMR. This is required for all hauliers to carry cargo legally within Europe.
The value of this international coverage is calculated based on the value of Special Drawing Rights, which awards just over £8.00 per kilogram.
