Rates and charges do NOT include Marine Insurance.

 

Cargo moving under Carrier's bill of lading will automatically be insured under Carrier's open policy unless written insurance instructions

declining such coverage are provided to the Carrier prior to the established document cut-off times. Upon request, carrier will remove the

insurance charges if the customer executes a "Insurance Waiver Agreement" prior to cargo release and the customer has not previously

requested such waiver from the Carrier. Carrier's open policy through Seven Seas Insurance Co., Inc. is available to interested parties for

inspection of terms and conditions of coverage at Carrier's facility at 5 East 11th Street, Riviera Beach, Florida 33404-6902, or its nominated

agency, or may be obtained at carrier's web-site at www.tropical.com.

 

Exception:

 

Household goods and personal effects are covered under Free of Particular Average Coverage only upon Customer signing of acceptance.

     

Insurance premiums for Less-Than-Containerload (LCL) cargo are calculated, in part, on invoice value of the cargo.  Should shipper not provide

the invoice value of the LCL cargo at the time of shipment, then the Carrier shall base the invoice value on the cubic feet tendered times $28.00.

 

Example:    Total CFT tendered:               15

                                            X             $ 28         

                 Calculated Invoice Value      $420

 

Insurance premiums for Full-Containerload (FCL) cargo are calculated, in part, on invoice value of the cargo.  Should shipper not provide the invoice

value of the FCL cargo at the time of shipment, then the Carrier shall base the invoice value on an established valuation formula established by Seven

Seas Insurance Co., Inc. based on the commodity. A copy of the valuation formula can be obtained from through Seven Seas Insurance Co., Inc.

 

All premiums shall be rounded up to the nearest dollar.
