What does standard marine insurance cover?

  • Perils of the sea
  • Theft
  • Malicious damage & poor handling
  • Fire and accidental damage
  • Inland transit cargo insurance

    As a specialist marine insurance practice, Howden can build all these covers into one policy, simplifying the process of insuring your valued cargo.

    Policies are available on an annual or shipment basis. An open policy covers you for a year at agreed-upon rates, subject to declarations.

    A specific policy covers for a single shipment; door to door. We’re ready to cover virtually any item or commodity, from a fine art painting to a hundred thousand tonnes of coffee and virtually anything in between.

    Additionally you may want to consider

    • Stock throughput
    • War risks insurance
    • Confiscation & expropriation
    • Credit insurance

    Insurance cover and risk management are two vital aspects of international trade in goods. If you’re moving things by sea, air or rail, you’ll want to know you’ve got a robust approach to both.
