When goods are moved during the normal course of business, there is always a need for Marine Cargo Insurance. It covers the risks involved in transporting goods by Ocean Vessel, Aircraft, Barge, Rail, Truck or any other mode of transport.
Marine Cargo Insurance provides protection for goods being transported, indemnifying the Insured for physical loss or damage that results from an insured peril. The most important aspect of this type of insurance is that as an assignable document, title can be transferred from one party to another. With Cargo insurance, the person who arranges and buys the policy is not always the person entitled to claim in the event of a covered loss.
Who is a potential Marine Cargo Insurance customer?
Any person who has an insurable interest in a shipment, and who would suffer a financial loss should the cargo be damaged or destroyed or would benefit from the safe arrival of the cargo, has a need for Marine Cargo Insurance.
Entities most often involved in such business are:
- Suppliers, Processors and Distributors
- Commodity Traders
- Customs Brokers
- Wholesalers & Retailers
- Logistics & Project Managers
- Airfreight Carriers
- Importers & Exporters
- Freight Forwarders
- Multi-national Companies
- Trucking companies
- Logistics management firms
Receivers and shippers of goods who currently do not have a cargo policy, and rely on another party to insure the safe arrival of the product.
A standard set of “Institute Clauses" is normally used to cover 'general cargo' which includes manufactured goods, machinery, hardware and most consumer goods. Coverage is subject to Institute Cargo Clauses A, B, & C. as well as Inland Transit clauses which covers risks during transportation over land. There are some other specialized covers for specific commodities, which are tailored to the specific trade. These clauses are known as the 'Trade Clauses'. We shall be happy to provide further details if required.
Coverage can be tailored to meet the unique individual needs of our clients
