BECAUSE YOUR BUSINESS MATTERS TO US
Every year literally billions of dollars' worth of project-critical equipment is sent around the globe aboard ships. A combination of weather conditions on the oceans and seas, the cargoes themselves, transport logistics, re-fabrication, soaring expenses, short deadlines and potential lost profits means it can be a very risky business. If a shipment is late it can lose a fortune, and that's where cargo insurance comes in.
Just because a shipment doesn't arrive, or is late, it needn't end in financial disaster. Our trusted insurers offer cover for small and large cargo risks thanks to highly skilled teams of expert underwriters. We act as your middle man, making sure you understand your cover, get exactly the right protection at the right price, and don't miss anything vital. In a world where the risks are famously volatile, insurance can be a business-saver.
