Carriers are not liable for loss or damage to your cargo caused by natural disasters.
You can't predict when nature will strike, moreover anyone can accuse nature so you need to always protect your cargo with insurance.
Stolen or mishandled cargo is your responsibility.
Carriers can limit their liability according to tariffs or bills of lading. If your cargo is stolen or damaged in transit, your settlement may not even cover your replacement costs!
Carriers always have their contract of service well set up to exonerate them from many responsibilities. So thinking you would hold the shipping line responsible for your cargo is always an illusion.
And Much more important, even cargo underwriters set up their systems well enough to reduce and avoid responsibilities it is of great importance that you don't meddle naively meddle with insurance hoping that your cargo will be paid for under any form of loss.

And in most cases they can prove themselves right in any court of law.
