Why is Marine Cargo Insurance important, you may ask?

Marine Cargo Insurance is important because it is designed to protect your goods in the event of loss and damage whilst in transit.

As a business owner of a small to medium-sized enterprise, damage or loss to cargoes can affect the profitability and survival of your business. This means that Marine Cargo Insurance is literally designed to protect your bottom line.

There are only a few things that can be done to protect your cargo while in-transit. One of these is ensuring that the freight has been packaged properly to lessen the risk of damage to goods.

Nevertheless, there are many perils and liabilities to be concerned about. Rough seas can cause damage to items by tossing and jostling them around in the containers.
