What does standard Marine Cargo insurance cover?

Insurance cover and risk management are essentially when you are trading goods internationally, whether by sea, air or rail. Having the right protection gives you piece of mind should the worst happen.

Howden are specialists in Marine insurance and can build the cover you need to protect your cargo into one simple policy. We can cover whatever item or commodity you're transporting, from fine art to a hundred thousand tonnes of coffee and virtually anything in between.

You policy will include protection against:

  • Perils of the sea
  • Theft
  • Malicious damage & poor handling
  • Fire and accidental damage
  • Inland transit cargo insurance

Policies are available on an annual or shipment basis. An open policy covers you for a year at agreed-upon rates, subject to declarations.

You can also arrange to be included in your cover:

  • Stock throughput
  • War risks insurance
  • Confiscation & expropriation
  • Credit insurance
