Does your insured’s business import or export its products? Do they source raw materials or distribute/sell manufactured goods overseas? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, Marine Cargo insurance should be considered as an integral component of your client’s business stability strategy.  

Billions of dollars of goods and merchandise are shipped around the world each year, resulting in high-risk cargo exposures.

These risks aren’t limited to one industry, but can span many industries, including manufacturing, distribution, healthcare, energy, construction and technology. Marine Cargo insurance covers physical loss and/or damage of goods while in transit between the point of origin through the final delivery.
