Like an airbag, transport insurance offers a soft landing for your business.

Your fleet and cargo are insured when the road gets bumpy.


Transport insurance protects companies against loss or damage to goods during transport. Consider risks such as accidents, fire, etc.

The transport insurance that doesn't cut corners

Your goods need to be moved from point A to point B. With logistics and transport, goods make their way across vast networks of roads, waterways and airways.

If something goes wrong along the way, the success of your ventures can suddenly take an unexpected turn.

At these crucial times, transport insurance serves as the appropriate safety net for companies.

Why do I need transport insurance?

Meet contractual obligations

Many clients and customers require you to have transport insurance before they engage with you. So, transport insurance can help you attract new clients.

As a professional carrier, you are liable unless you prove otherwise

Normally, the expression: "He who demands, proves" applies.
In the case of damage caused by a professional transporter, the situation is different. He is liable unless he proves otherwise.

Business continuity

An accident is in a small corner. Don't let an accident determine the financial course of your business.

What does transport insurance cover?

There are several transport insurance policies available. Each with their own specific coverage and target group.
Materné will be happy to advise you which protection meets your expectations.

CMR insurance

CMR insurance protects the professional freight forwarder. It can be contractually liable from receipt to delivery of the entrusted goods. For any damage, loss, delay, etc.

CTA insurance

CTA insurance protects the carrier against contractual liability for damage or loss of towed trailers, as well as third-party trailers and containers.

Own-account transport of goods

This policy provides cover for the damage or loss of goods transported on your own account (overturned vehicles, van break-in, burst tyres, etc.).

Think of merchandise, entrusted goods of customers and tools damaged along the way.
