Marine Cargo insurance cover

Marine cargo insurance covers the risks of loss, damage, expense and liability to your goods during transportation as cargo from one place to another place. For example, from a factory located inland to the seaport and then across the seas to the address of the buyer of your goods abroad.

The process of transportation includes airfreight, ocean freight and overland carriage. The marine cargo insurance is to indemnify the cargo owners and/or the financiers such as banks against financial loss arising as a result of physical loss, damage, expenses incurred or liability from the transportation process.

Loss can arise from the perils of the sea such as rough weather, sinking, the ports or as a result of overturning, collision of and/or theft from overland transports.
