We cover all accidental damages to the container while under your care custody and control.

Cold Treatment Guarantee: keep your head cool
Cold Treatment is a highly precise process where goods (usually fruits) are kept at a specific and accurate temperature for a predetermined, uninterrupted period and ensures the removal of possible parasites (fruit flies and larvae), without requiring pesticides or fumigation.
Goods being rejected by the sanitary authorities due to a cold treatment failure can have a serious financial impact on your business.
CMA CGM's Cold Treatment Guarantee compensates the following financial consequences that you may possibly incur:
- Damage to your goods,
- Additional costs for a second cold treatment process,
- Extra expenses (storage, plugging costs, handling charges…)
- Loss of profit,
- Rerouting expenses.
