The Hartford’s Ocean Cargo Choice provides extensive coverage. Cargo is covered from point of shipment, while it’s in transit, and right up until it reaches its destination. The Hartford will even cover concealed damage for damage that may occur during shipment, even though there is no apparent damage to the packaging.
