Standards and certifications

International standards and liability insurance

In providing our services we comply with various international standards and certifications. Ordinary liability insurance for freight forwarders in general only covers a limited part and, in most cases, will not provide sufficient insurance cover in the event of loss. That is why we recommend cargo insurance through DSV. Our cargo insurance covers almost all types of cargo in the event of accidents, incorrect handling or other events that may cause damage to or loss of cargo.

Certain DSV locations are registered to a number of key ISO standards as well as a number of other recognised systems.
