Marine, Freight & Logistics
We specialise in providing innovative insurance solutions to the marine, freight and logistics sector including businesses that service this sector. We conduct in-depth insurance reviews enabling us to offer tailored solutions, concentrating on protection of assets and liabilities at competitive premiums.
Freight Forwarders and Logistics Operators
We provide comprehensive insurance solutions to cover the client's liability for loss or damage to customers' goods. As associate members of BIFA our policy wording meets with their requirements, and covers for loss or damage to goods in accordance with liability under trading conditions with errors and omissions included as standard.
The wording is specifically tailored for the client's needs which is important in what can be such a highly complex area. We are able to provide expert knowledge of trading conditions with access to specialist legal advice and use of highly experienced claims handlers.
In addition to the above we are also able to arrange an open cargo facility in which the client can provide to his customer an option to insure worldwide sendings on an ‘all risks' basis as per the standard marine clauses. Policies can be arranged online enabling the client to provide terms to their customer in a fast and efficient manner whilst minimising administration costs and time.
Haulage and Warehousekeepers
We provide policy wordings for road hauliers, warehouse keepers, couriers and logistics operators to cover their legal liability for loss or damage to goods whilst in their care, custody and control, in accordance with their conditions of carriage.
The standard wording has no restrictions or exclusions regarding types of goods carried and includes errors and omissions, consequential loss, all risks cover on third party containers and/or trailers and drivers' personal effects. Physical loss or damage to owned and/or leased trailers, containers and similar handling equipment can be included. Policies can be extended to include any enhanced contracts undertaken.
Cargo and Stockthroughputs
Cargo policies can be arranged to cover movement of own goods on a worldwide basis on individually tailored policies to reflect the client's needs.
Stockthroughput policies may be more suitable to those clients who are involved in both the transit and storage of their goods which can all be arranged under one policy, providing them with seamless cover under one simple to administer and cost-effective policy, with one insurer.
Policy wordings are tailored to meet the client's individual requirements but as standard they will include exhibition and/or demonstration risks as well as samples or spares in representative's vehicles. They will also include returned goods, debris removal, buyers and sellers interest contingent cove and storage at any location including own, third parties and retail outlets.
Our policy is designed for clients operating within the following sectors:
- Marinas and boatyards, ports, harbours and terminals
- Boat and yacht builders, boat repairers boat brokers and agents boat clubs, sailing clubs and rowing clubs
- Chandlers, marine suppliers and retailers
- Vessel sales

Our policy provides a ‘one stop solution' with the added benefit of a comprehensive risk management facility provided by highly experienced staff in both the commercial and marine sectors.
