owned by Pacific Atlantic Freight
LLC. We are a fully licensed: Freight Broker, Freight Forwarder
and Insurance broker, originally established in 1984
in Los Angeles California. We specialize in domestic and
shipping services including cargo insurance and other
transportation related lines of insurance.
freight shipping company, we understand first hand the need to protect your
valuable cargo shipments against damage or loss while in
transit. Even the top leading freight carriers and moving companies only provide the minimum
legal liability cargo insurance coverage of $0.60 per pound. For example, If your shipment is worth $5,000 but it only weighs
500 lbs, in the event of a loss you would only receive $300, no
matter what the actual loss value was. That's not sufficient and many find this out the hard way.
We established our Freight/Shipping/Cargo Insurance division to provide our
clients with peace of mind by offering the much needed service
insurance coverage based on the actual full value of the
goods (not weight) and on a custom per shipment basis. Through
our specialized freight forwarder cargo policy, we are able to
issue customized insurance certificates for each shipment to
properly protect your goods during transit. You can choose from
total loss, to the broadest all risk coverage depending on what
you are concerned with occurring during transit and how well
your goods are packaged.
Our cargo insurance coverage is provided and
underwritten direct from leading
A rated insurers, so that we can provide you with
full comprehensive primary cargo insurance coverage options not
provided by the freight carriers. This coverage is in excess to
the limited liability of the freight carriers and is primary in
the event of a loss. The insurer is rated "AA"
by the leading independent, third party financial analysis
companies such as AM Best, Standard & Poor's and Fitch, as a
result of their excellent financial strength ratings and claims payment history.
Most importantly, because we are also a freight
broker and forwarder in addition to being an insurance broker,
we have access to this special type of cargo insurance designed
specifically for freight forwarders & freight logistics
providers. Therefore, we are able to acquire discounted rates
