Echo Global Logistics, Inc. introduced EchoInsure+, a new, integrated, full-coverage cargo insurance product offered exclusively to Echo clients.
“We’re very excited to now offer full value shipment insurance for our clients,” says Doug Waggoner, CEO at Echo. “EchoInsure+ provides the protection our clients deserve at an affordable cost, saving them from financial loss or lengthy claims processes.”
“EchoInsure+ represents an often-requested addition available through our innovative technology, EchoShip, offering unique coverage our clients can rely on,” adds Dave Menzel, president and COO at Echo. “As with all of our easy-to-use technology, it is supported by our experts who are available around the clock to meet all of our clients’ transportation needs.”
From PR Newswire:
- Through a partnership with Falvey, EchoInsure+ enables clients to access best-in-class protection for their LTL shipments through both EchoShip, Echo’s proprietary online shipping platform, as well as Echo representatives.
- Key benefits include claims paid in as fast as 10 days, zero deductible up to $10,000, a broad protection plan with fewer exclusions and full value coverage not limited by specific carrier liability. Without utilizing EchoInsure+, shippers run the risk of assuming financial responsibility past limits set by carriers, facing potential exclusions for loss and damage as a result of external factors or Acts of God, and waiting as long as 120 days for claims resolution.
- With EchoInsure+, Echo streamlines the process for booking supplemental cargo insurance at the time of load booking, thereby increasing efficiency and, if necessary, providing a smoother claims process with faster resolutions for clients.
