Marine Cargo Insurance provides protection of goods from physical loss or damage when they are in transit. This insurance can be extended by talking to a Broker like Sure Insure. We make sure that your goods are covered until they are formally in the hands of your company. Our tailor made policies can cover you for transport not just by sae, but by rail, air and road.
Like any supply chain, events can often be unexpected, but weather can play havoc with marine cargo. The news is often full of marine supply chain nightmare stories. From storms causing loss of entire loads to blockages of crucial passages.
Marine cargo insurance covers loss or damage of ships and goods or delays caused by strikes at terminals. It can also manage issues with transport or storage between the cargo of origin and the final destination.
Regular Cargo or One off Options
Our exceptional knowledge of the insurance options for transporting your goods means we can tailor-make your policy. If you are a regular importer or exporter we will look into annual policies to save you money. If you only send or receive good from overseas every so often, maybe it's best to look at cover for just one shipment. Customers of marine cargo insurance have a wide variety of needs.
Cover can easily be arranged whether you are the one sending or receiving the goods. That means that whether you're the supplier or customer, whatever happens in transit. Items are covered from the moment they leave your premises until they are in the hands of the buyer.
Are you the manager of a business, sports team or responsible for a party from a school or other association? If you are travelling overseas for an exhibition, competition or conference, there are special clauses to explore.
Other things to consider are clauses and rules for delicate, valuable or hazardous cargo.
