Cargo & Transport

Contact Us

The cargo and transport industry is a unique and complex sector, and the risks associated with having goods in transit, whether it be by road, air, rail, or road, requires specialist knowledge and cover. Having the right insurance policy in place can help to target these risks and offer essential protection for businesses engaged in importing, exporting, distribution, or domestic transportation.

Some of the risks the cargo and transportation industry faces include:

  • Financial loss associated with the loss of goods
  • The risks associated with General Average (a Marine Principal that dictates that loss or damage to a ship or its cargo is shared among the Shipowners and Cargo owners)
  • Acts of Piracy, theft and pilferage
  • Malicious damage by Masters, officers or Crew of a vessel
  • The risks associated with Transhipment risks (the moving of goods from one conveyance to another).
