Marine Cargo

If you are involved in the movement and storage of marine cargo, it is essential to the livelihood of your business to ensure goods are protected against loss and damage.

We have many years’ experience arranging tailored insurance for companies involved in the movement of goods or cargo, whether transported via road, rail, sea or air, along with warehouse and container storage. This includes any logistics or distribution company providing general haulage and marine cargo services.

With in-depth knowledge of this specialist area, we have the expertise to provide tailored cover to meet the trading conditions and liabilities imposed by your contract, ensuring that your business, including your people, assets, equipment and vehicles, are protected.

As a matter of course, we will ensure goods are comprehensively insured for the entirety of their journey, whether they are in haulage or storage and on an all-risks basis, if required. Cover can include damage to goods, loss of goods, theft, pilferage, conversion, shortage or non-delivery, as required by the universally approved Institute Cargo Clauses.

With access to specialist underwriters, we can also arrange cover for such activities as movement of hazardous goods, fuel distribution and storage, chemical and solvent distribution, waste transfer and carriage and emergency spillage.
