Why Cargo insurance?

Who needs it?

For many SMEs, the products they ship are the lifeblood of their business. The loss of a shipment can jeopardize their future. Insurance is crucial to safeguard their balance sheet and livelihoods.

Carrier coverage gaps

Shippers and carriers often have insurance gaps that leave cargo owners vulnerable. Legal liability is limited, and even if claims are paid, they may not cover the full value of damaged or lost goods.

Hidden risks unveiled

Owners of cargoes that survive an incident at sea can be forced to compensate others whose cargo was abandoned to protect the ship, under the ‘general average’ rule. This can be expensive without insurance.

Target Business

UK-domiciled wholesalers, retailers and manufacturers.
