Container Protect in France

Don’t let container damage slow down your supply chain

Transporting your cargo across France comes with its fair share of risks. Shipment containers are prone to damage at any point in transit and can lead to a long and complex claims process. You can spend time and resources determining the cause of damage and sorting out the related paperwork. This can throw a wrench in your supply chain operations and slow down your cargo’s journey.

To avoid such situations, you need a solution that ensures your container damage disputes are handled expediently and resolved without disrupting your supply chain. Container Protect by Maersk for France provides just this. By adding the solution to your cargo’s journey, your bookings are immune to all damages in transit* so that you can focus on your supply chain while we handle the damage issues in the background.
