Complete immediate coverage for heavyweight cargo LTL shipments available at a reduced rate.

Discount Shipping Insurance (DSI), the leading provider of 3rd party shipping insurance, has added cargo insurance coverage to their online instant policy program. Users can visit to purchase immediate cargo trip policies using their credit card for individual shipments while in transit with the major shipping carriers. Covered carriers include Roadway, R & L, SAIA, Watkins, and the thousands of other common LTL carriers.

DSI has always offered open parcel and cargo coverage to the frequent shipper, but the need exists for covering the individual large, heavyweight freight shipment without obtaining an open policy. Through the DSI website,, users can purchase full coverage for their cargo shipments that are sent within the U.S.A. and Canada. Whether you are sending a piano to a relative or you are shipping a chair you sold to someone on eBay®, complete coverage for loss or damage is available. “Our website has always allowed for instant coverage for USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, and Greyhound shipments,” said Ariel Shmorak, Vice President of DSI. “However, the need arose for the coverage of cargo shipments for larger items. DSI has responded with a simple, low cost solution for insuring these shipments.” Mr. Shmorak continues, “DSI Insurance is now the only company that offers instant coverage for small parcels and large freight, leaving more time to concentrate on your bottom line.”

As with all DSI coverage, all cargo trip policy claims are filed and managed electronically and processed in an expedited manner. The entire process is paperless and hassle-free. Frequent shippers can request open policies that offer broader coverage and include International cargo shipments. Open policy holders, as well as trip policy holders, benefit from DSI’s low insurance rates, as well as their online claims management solution.

Whether you are preparing a cargo shipment using a freight forwarder, a logistics provider, or automated website such as, DSI offers a cost effective solution to make sure your precious freight is covered while in transit.
