Marine Insurance

The marine class of insurance deals with the various types of insurances, which you require in respect of marine perils.

  • Marine Cargo Insurance
  • Marine Hull Insurance

Marine Cargo Insurance

Product Details Description
Product Name Marine Cargo Insurance

Marine Cargo Insurance provides cover in respect of goods imported or exported by sea or air. Cover usually starts from the warehouse in the country of origin, continues throughout the ordinary course of transit by sea or air until the goods are delivered to the final warehouse of destination, including inland transit.

The cover is usually provided under one of three sets of cargo clauses – Institute Cargo Clauses (A), (B) or (C).

The Institute Cargo Clauses (A) provide the widest cover of the three as it covers all risks subject to exclusions, the main ones being loss attributable to:

  • Wilful misconduct of the Insured
  • Ordinary leakage, loss of volume or weight, ordinary wear and tear
  • Insufficiency or unsuitability of packing
  • Inherent vice
  • Delay
  • Unseaworthiness of vessel

The (C) clauses provide cover in respect of major casualties such as fire or explosion, vessel being sunk, collision while the (B) clauses provide cover against some perils additional to those insured under the (C) clauses.

There are other clauses, which apply to specific goods such as frozen foods, timber.

If you have to ship goods on a regular basis, it would be easier to have a marine open cover, which provides an automatic cover for all your shipments. You would only have to declare shipments on a regular basis instead of having to arrange for cover each and every time you have a shipment to make.
