If your company transports goods by sea or air, marine cargo insurance will provide cover for your shipments. Marine insurance covers goods that are imported or exported and is effective for shipments arranged to and from most international locations.
Cover can be arranged on an ‘all risks’ basis. This is the widest cover available and will cover your cargo whilst it is in transit.
aba can provide insurance cover for cargo through the entirety of its journey. The insurance we arrange is known a stock throughput and will provide cover for your goods whilst they are in transit, whilst they are being stored (prior to, during or after their journey) and whilst they are en route to their final destination.
Shipping goods by sea can involve your goods being handled many times as they are loaded on and off vessels and vehicles. The insurer requires that the packing of goods being shipped is adequate, and that they are protected effectively for the journey. Failure to have suitable packig may mean that insurers refuse to deal with a claim.
We recommend that you speak to one of our experienced insurance advisers if your goods are fragile or particularly valuable because special policy terms or exclusions may apply. Contact aba today to discuss your exact requirements.
