What is Marine Cargo / Transit Insurance?

Marine cargo / transit insurance covers the physical loss or damage of goods whilst being transported by road, rail, sea or air.

My transit carrier provides insurance, why do I need to buy marine insurance?

Your own marine cargo insurance policy will be tailored to meet the specific needs of your goods and transits. Therefore, ensuring sufficient coverage in the event of damage or loss to goods. Furthermore, your own marine cargo insurance policy is likely to be less expensive than a policy provided by a transit carrier.

In many instances, your carrier won’t compensate you for the full value of your goods or belongings in the event of damage or loss. Shipping companies are only liable to pay you a sum up to the amount specified in their trading conditions and these can be very limited.

Do I really need marine cargo insurance?

Unfortunately, shipments do get lost or damaged in transit. So, could your business afford the fallout if something does happen? Consider the following:

  • The time it takes to make a liability insurance claim.
  • Proof of liability.
  • Cost of replacing the goods and arranging a new delivery.
  • Financial loss due to delays, loss of goodwill etc.
  • Legal fees.
