Errors and Omissions Insurance

 

Your company does it’s best to adhere to the rules and regulations governing the transportation industry, and in most instances provides exceptional, professional services to your customers. Yet, the applicable regulations are constantly changing and today’s litigious environment, in which settlements and awards are increasingly on the rise, your company cannot afford to go without the proper Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O Insurance).

 

What Is Errors and Omissions Insurance?

Errors and Omissions insurance is a type of professional liability insurance available to any company that offers advice or provides a service. At Roanoke Trade, we provide cost-effective E&O insurance that is specifically designed for transportation and logistics service professionals.

E&O insurance from Roanoke Trade covers your inherent vulnerability to financial exposures and liability, as a result of improper performance of, or the failure to perform, your professional services, including your activities as a customs broker, property broker, domestic freight forwarder, international freight forwarder, NVOCC, warehouseman, etc. Without the appropriate E&O Insurance, you could face substantial and costly legal claims.

 

How Does E&O Insurance Protect Your Business?

In the event, a customer files a claim against your company, E&O Insurance will cover your legal defense and any settlement awarded to the customer, per the policy terms. An Errors and Omissions Insurance policy is applicable to a wide range of claims alleging damages or losses as a result of the services you provided.

Some of the most common types of claims under the typical E&O Insurance policy include: failure to follow instructions, shipping delay caused by the negligence of an employee, improper quotation of charges, incorrect document preparation, unauthorized release of goods, misdirection, failure to collect documents, failure to properly clear goods upon entry, incorrect classification of goods,  failure to insure cargo when instructed to do so, negligent selection of trucker or other carriers, among other activities.

Errors and omissions insurance that covers the cost of defense from the very first dollar for  a claim is going to give your business the best value. Your risks are unique and a potential legal action costly, which is why you need E&O insurance specific to your needs and comprehensive in nature.
