Protect cargo and vessels while in transport with ocean marine insurance.


What does ocean marine insurance offer?

Ocean marine insurance is a policy used to protect cargo, vessels, and other items while they are being transported across the ocean. It’s an important coverage to consider, as it provides protection on the open waters.

The real risks of transporting cargo by sea.

As the saying goes, “worse things happen at sea.” And, believe it or not, this saying holds true when it comes to shipping goods across the ocean. Ocean cargo services face a surprising range of risks. As expected, these risks include the dangers of collisions with other ships or running aground, but there’s also the threat of modern-day piracy, as well as the dangers of fire.

Insurance for ship operators and their clients alike.

Ocean marine insurance policies cover some or all of these risks and are essential if your business relies on goods getting to their destination across the ocean in a timely and safe manner. Both ship operators and clients can take out these types of policies. Usually, a client will take out a policy that only covers their own goods, but offers better coverage limits or a faster claims processing schedule. Here are the types of businesses that most likely need this type of coverage:

  • Shipyards
  • Ship Builders
  • Ship Operators
  • Importers/Exporters
  • Manufacturers
  • Traders

What coverages are included?

While the specifics of your policy may vary, coverage typically extends to cargo, marine liability, pollution, protection and indemnity, and equipment. This type of policy is essential to have in order to help protect your day-to-day business operations.

Flexibility to customize your coverage needs.

There’s a great deal of flexibility with ocean marine insurance, with the biggest divide being between policies that only cover specified risks and usually have lower premiums, as well as policies that cover any risks except for those that are specifically excluded.
