Marine Cargo Insurance

Marine Cargo Insurance

Marine cargo insurance covers losses, arising from physical damage to goods, while being transported around the world, whether by road, rail, sea or air and even in storage. This coverage is especially important when you are importing or exporting goods overseas as your goods can be handled by various companies over many continents. Cargo cover will also cover your UK based, Goods-In-Transit for the collection and delivery of your own goods.

If your company delivers, imports or exports goods or uses third-party companies to move your goods, then a Marine Cargo Insurance policy offers you specialist protection against the loss or damage to your goods. Importing and Exporting goods can carry unseen risks such as general average losses which may not be covered by your shipper’s insurance policy and this can cause significant financial losses to the owner of the goods. A cargo policy puts you in financial control of the loss and insurers will pay you directly and decide who was liable in their time, not yours.
