Marine Cargo Insurance

Marine Cargo InsuranceMarine Cargo Insurance has existed for many centuries and covers losses from physical damage to cargo and related liabilities. Cover extends from the sea transit leg to a period whilst in storage, after which it will be seen as property requiring different insurance.

The types of Cargo Policies that exist include;

Marine Cargo – Imports and Exports
This covers General Cargo generally shipped in containers. Certain products such as perishables or commodities will require specialised, specific cover. Marine Cargo insurance will cover the consignment for the full duration that our client is at risk, from the seller’s to the buyer’s premises including storage along the way.
