Main Risks coverage: don't let catastrophic events affect your business!


There are many instances for which a carrier is not liable: acts of God, force majeure, acts of War, perils of the seas…. In these cases, carrier has the right to legally refuse to compensate the loss or damages to your cargo.

This is why CMA CGM offers you a coverage for the Main Risks so that you will be compensated regardless of carrier liability.

  • Acts of God (Earthquake, lightning...)
  • Water damage
  • Loading or unloading operations
  • Theft, pilferage, non-delivery

Container Guarantee: avoid expenses when damaging our containers

Cold Treatment Guarantee: keep your head cool


Cold Treatment is a highly precise process where goods (usually fruits) are kept at a specific and accurate temperature for a predetermined, uninterrupted period and ensures the removal of possible parasites (fruit flies and larvae), without requiring pesticides or fumigation.

Goods being rejected by the sanitary authorities due to a cold treatment failure can have a serious financial impact on your business.

CMA CGM's Cold Treatment Guarantee compensates the following financial consequences that you may possibly incur:

  • Damage to your goods,
  • Additional costs for a second cold treatment process,
