Declared Value

Protection is a piece of mind.

At Southwest Cargo®, we consider each item you ship valuable, and we treat it that way. At times, you may need to ship items that require additional coverage. And we can assist you in purchasing declared value coverage for your precious cargo.

Cost of Coverage:

$0.55 per $100 of excess declared value.

Maximum Declared Value:

NFG | RUSH | Freight $25,000.00
Any perishable shipment $15,000.00
Any fragile or high value shipment $500.00
  • Customers may declare value for any shipment, excluding Southwest Support® shipments.
  • When any shipment consists of two (2) or more pieces, the declared value for each piece shall be determined by dividing the value declared on the air waybill by the number of pieces in the shipment.

International shipments are covered under the Montreal Protocol and/or Warsaw Convention with increased limits of liability. Refer to IATA Resolution 600b for complete details.

The declared value charges are subject to Federal Excise Tax. Refer to the Southwest Contract of Carriage for complete details.
