Air Cargo

National and international airway shipments can pose risks to logistics companies and their insurers in relation to cargo damage. HCI understands the complexity of these shipments, which typically incorporate warehousing and several forms of transportation previously discussed within this site. At HCI, we assist insurers with investigating and resolving air freight cargo claims, which include, but are not limited to, the following losses:


  • Cargo thefts and shortages
  • Cargo spoilage – temperature abuse
  • Cargo contamination
  • Load shifts and upsets
  • Improper storage and handling
  • Improper securement and packaging

Airlines continue to be an essential mode of shipping for logistics companies. The importance of expediting inspections and investigations relating to these shipments is understood by HCI, and we are able to make the required arrangements to complete these tasks quickly and efficiently.
