Program Description: 

Our cargo insurance protects Yale University in the case of damage to any item being shipped, either to or from campus, as long as we are the owner of the goods and/or we are contractually responsible for them while they are in transit. Some exclusions or limitations apply.

Cargo claims are administered by Sedgwick CMS, the University’s third party claims administration company, with oversight provided by the Office of Enterprise Risk Management.

Payment for the full amount of damage will be made by Sedgwick CMS directly to the department. 

For more information on Cargo insurance, please contact Marje Lemmon at 203-432-0140, or

A list of resources is available in the menu to the right.


There is a deductible of $750 per claim, and deductibles will be assessed to the department by the Office of Enterprise Risk Management once the claim is settled and closed by Sedgwick CMS.
