Tech-focused logistics company eCourier and insurance aggregator Carnival Assure have brought parcels under insurance coverage for delivery across the country in pickup service.
Customers can get insurance coverage when booking parcels in the "person to person" category for delivery service, the company said Saturday.
Sena Kalyan Insurance Company will provide the insurance and Carnival Assure aggregates the service.
A tri-party agreement was signed recently to develop the innovative service.
Sena Kalyan Insurance Chief Executive Officer Brigadier General Shafique Shamim (retd), Mohiuddin Rasti Morshed, director of Carnival Assure and Dotlines Group, and eCourier Chief Executive Officer Biplob Ghosh Rahul were present.
The insurance coverage will continue till the parcel is delivered from the customer's home to the recipient.
Biplob said: "eCourier is working to bring the best services and logistics solutions to the customers. I hope that the inclusion of insurance will strengthen our position in the market by gaining customers' trust."
