Shipsurance Insurance Coverage for Multibox Shipments

ShippingEasy partners with Shipsurance, a third party shipment insurance provider, to secure affordable insurance coverage for your parcels. Learn more about Shipsurance.

When you purchase Shipsurance coverage for a FedEx or UPS multiple box shipment, the "insure to" value selected is applied to the entire shipment.

For example: if you have a two box shipment and select $200 in Shipsurance coverage, then you have just purchased $200 in coverage. If both the boxes are lost or damaged, you will be able to file a claim for $200.

As of January 2020, Shipsurance costs $0.59 per $100 of coverage on UPS and FedEx shipments. See our current rates
