Marine transit insurance

Accidental damage, collision, dropping during loading and unloading

The story

Dan has a small business that exports organic cheeses from Australia to Asia. He worked for years in developing and refining the recipe, and he is confident in the quality of his product.

Recently, he sent a crate of cheeses to a new client overseas. Unfortunately, the crate was left on the dock unrefrigerated. Not only did Dan lose valuable product, but he also lost business from the new client, and caused damage to his business’ reputation.

Thankfully, Dan had taken a marine transit insurance policy with us that included accidental damage cover. This policy meant that his products were covered from the time they left his business until they were in his client’s possession. Dan was able to obtain a reimbursement for the cost of his product that he lost, and was able to concentrate on repairing the reputational damage to his business.

There are many different types of marine-related insurance policies that provide cover for varied events including collision, products being dropped, malicious damage from third-parties, and fire, explosion and lightning.
