Marine Insurance

Marine Insurance

Marine Cargo Insurance covers loss or damage to any form of cargo, moved by ship, road, rail or air. Sometime, this insurance is referred to as Marine Transit insurance and lately this is being abbreviated to simply “transit” insurance.

Whether a business imports or exports goods or simply ships goods within Australia, it should have Marine Cargo insurance to cover the financial loss associated with damage or lost goods.

What are the “risks” or perils that Marine Cargo Insurance covers?

  • Loss or damage during shipment due to total or partial loss or damage only to the goods being carried
  • Loss or damage during shipment due to an accident with the conveying ship, plane, train or vehicle
  • Loss or damage to the goods during loading or unloading 
  • Loss or damage to the goods in temporary storage (where such storage is a part of the overall journey)

Many claims for damage occur during the loading and unloading process
