Innovative Goods Insurance Concepts
Playing it safe globally….
We are specialists in the business of transport insurance. According to the principles of the classic insurance underwriters, we insure all of your goods transportation to and from every corner of the world with all forms of transport, whether you are the owner, interested party or legally liable carrier.
- As underwriting agents we assess the associated risks against the background of our many years of experience in the insurance business, design coverage concepts and provide binding offers within the framework of the insurer’s authorization. The resulting insurance policies are then completed and signed through us.
- Similarly, we take over the entire claim adjustment process on behalf of the insurance company and arrange for a damage survey under the authorization of expert assessors and claims agents where necessary.
- We provide our services to domestic and international insurance agents and policy holders
The underwriting agent Friedrich Barkmann GmbH & Co. KG can look back on a long history. As early as 1918 the company Friedrich Barkmann was written into the commercial register of Hamburg as a private company operating as insurance agents.
Fifty years later, in 1968, the sister company Transportassekuranz-Kontor Barkmann & Co. was founded, acting as underwriting agents in the transportation and marine insurance sector.
In our current formation we offer insurance cover in the form of individual coverage concepts that we develop together with our customers and insurance agents.
The transport insurance sector incorporates a wide range of associated partners from business and private fields, for example, commercial haulage, home and office relocations, travel luggage, musical instruments, exhibitions and art insurance for museums, galleries and restorers.
And of course we recommend you contact us for your ship, yacht or pleasure-boat insurance needs.
We place your insurance exclusively in the hands of well-known, reputable insurance companies.
