Goods worth many billion Euros are lost or stolen every year, in Europe alone. In spite of the high quality and performance of VINCE TRANSIT GROUP Freight’s transportation solutions, shipment damage or loss can also affect our customers due to external causes.
In Europe the liability of road transportation service providers is typically limited by CMR regulations (Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road). However, in the event of a loss or damage these limitations are often not representative of the actual value of the goods.
Complementing its transportation services VINCE TRANSIT GROUP Freight can upon request arrange your freight insurance. This gives you financial protection against most risks of physical loss or damage due to external causes. Thus, customers who utilize freight insurance set-up by VINCE TRANSIT GROUP Freight can significantly reduce the financial impact associated with these unfortunate events.
In addition to arranging shipment insurance, DHL Freight takes a variety of proactive measures to ensure your freight’s safety. Comprehensive surveillance, padlocks, clamps and alarm systems, trucks marked on the roof with a license plate or a tactical number for aerial surveillance, emergency hotlines, second drivers on board – there are many things we are doing to protect your shipment throughout its journey.
As part of our efforts to establish a true security culture, VINCE TRANSIT GROUP is a freight forwarder with an in-house security department and one of the first to receive the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification from the US Customs and Border Protection agency. Several of our programs have achieved ‘Best Practice’ accreditation.
We manage freight security through a global incident reporting room and more than 100 highly secure locations from many accredited partners.
We use state-of-the-art risk assessment to ensure your assets are protected. But we still feel that more could be done. Our goal is to become the benchmark for supply chain security in the industry.
VINCE TRANSIT GROUP has participated successfully in a trial as part of the Container Security Initiative, where security devices were tested to enhance sea container security. Our proven security guidelines on sealing LCL containers were adopted as best practice by several customers.
