Insurance claims will be displayed in several tabs:
This tab will list all insurance claims, whether open or closed.
Claims that have not yet been processed.
Claims that our team are working on. This might include following up with the courier, the insurer, or just gathering the necessary documentation.
The Borderless360 insurance team will mark a claim as accepted once it has been approved.
If a claim is rejected, it will filter into the rejected tab.
The insurer may occasionally request further information. This could be images showing damaged packaging or correspondence with your customer. We will request this information from you and filter the claim into this folder.
Claims are paid in bulk. Once a payment has been made, we will mark the associated claims as paid.
When you close a ticket, it will appear on the closed tab.

Frequently asked questions
What can I claim for?
You can make a claim for any shipment that is lost or damaged. You cannot submit a claim for incorrect items. In these instances, please raise a Pick Pack Error ticket and a client success representative will assist.
How much am I insured for?
Borderless360 provides loss and damage insurance up to HK$300 for each shipment. You are covered for the purchase/cost value of the goods. Our insurer may request proof of purchase. For high-value shipments, you can request a buy-up option, which is a percentage of the value of the goods. We always recommend our clients have their own insurance as well.
In the case a package has been left at the doorstep and subsequently stolen or suspected stolen, the recipient has 24 hours to notify us of the incident in order to process the claim.
Tracking says Returned to Sender, can I make a claim?
If the package was lost in transit, then you can claim. If the package is returned to the warehouse, this is usually because of an incorrect address or a missed delivery. In these instances, you are not able to make an insurance claim. If the package is damaged in transit, you can make a claim.
What documents do I need to supply?
When making a claim, please send us any communication from the end customer stating they did not receive the package if applicable. If you already have proof of loss from the courier, please attach this to the ticket.
If you submit a claim for damaged goods, please also include images of the damaged product AND packaging and any communication from the end customer stating the package arrived damaged.
Lost in transit items: Purchase invoice or an equivalent verifiable document substantiating the value of items lost in transit must be submitted to demonstrate the value of such items at the time of loss. This could be a receipt of what you paid your supplier or preferably the commercial invoice that was sent to the warehouse for fulfillment.
Damaged in transit items: Imagery that proves damaged was sustained during transit. If the damage is caused by insufficient packaging, the claim may be rejected by the insurer.
Processing of claims
Be as specific as possible with your claim and supporting documents, especially if you are claiming for damaged goods. This will help with the fast processing of claims.
Is there a deadline for submitting a claim?
All claims filed through Borderless360 for packages lost or damaged in transit must be filed within 30 DAYS of the original ship date. Any claims submitted after this time frame will not be accepted.
