Whether you need an annual policy or cover on a single trip basis, we can arrange marine cargo insurance to cover your goods in transit, both internationally and domestically within the UK. Don’t be misled by the term “marine”, cover can apply to goods carried by road, rail, sea and air and can include both temporary and long-term storage during or at the end of the process.
This type of insurance can be used by anyone responsible for items on the move; including hauliers, wholesalers, manufacturers, importers, exporters and many more.
