Cargo Insurance

With the increased international trade, the use of cargo for transporting goods have become more of a necessity as it provides a significant amount of safety and reduction in the overall cost of transferring these goods.

Since each voyage is a joint venture of the ship owner and all the cargo owners, it is important that the cargoes or shipment are protected from risks which might result into huge losses for both parties.

Cargo insurance can ensure that you are protected from the financial consequences of loss of or damage to your cargo.

Cargo insurance covers the loss or damage of cargoes by which property is transferred, acquired, or held between the points of origin and final destination. The goods may be transported by sea, air, or land.
