Marine Cargo Insurance

Marine cargo or transit insurance is one of the oldest forms of insurance cover available today. It started life in the 1600’s and remains as important to businesses today as it was all those years ago. Despite the name however, cover also includes transit by road, air and train. Marine cargo insurance can also include temporary warehouse locations to offer further protection for your goods.

What is Marine Cargo Insurance?

As world trade becomes the norm, business is sending and receiving goods everyday from countries throughout the world. Never has insurance been more important or required. As the name suggests, marine cargo insurance is the transportation of goods by sea but the insurance is not limited to sea voyages. It includes land and air, in fact any form of transit is insurable.

How Do I Know If I Need A Policy?

Basically, any company with a product will at some point need a cargo policy. If you are buying from home or abroad or selling, the goods can be insured. If there was a loss, could you or your business afford to lose stock? The piece of mind in having a policy is vital.
