Goods In Transit

What is Goods In Transit insurance?

Goods in Transit insurance, sometimes known as GIT Insurance, is cover for ‘goods’ or contents being transported from one location to another by a vehicle in the course of business.  These goods could be being carried by company delivery vehicles or third-party carriers.

Your Commercial vehicle insurance policy will cover the vehicle itself, and some Fleet or Commercial Combines products may include some Goods in Transit cover, but only up to a certain value.  In most cases, transportation companies require a standalone Goods in Transit policy.
