INSURANCE   Davies Turner are able to offer competitive cargo insurance cover for goods arranged via Rail. Please note - should you already have marine insurance cover, this will NOT apply to rail movements and specific insurance should be arranged.

TERMS OF SHIPMENT   Ex works factory terms  are recommended for import rail shipments to assist with the control of movement and ensure LCL cut off is met, although FCA Wuhan terms are available if you prefer (under FCA terms, shipper is responsible for all local charges up to departure Wuhan rail terminal).

If you have historically bought on FOB terms for your ocean movements and wish to change to EXW terms for rail movements,  we recommend you re-negotiate with your supplier to obtain the relevant reduction in costs which will help offset the additional cost of arranging via rail on Ex works terms.
