Keeping goods safe and sound as they move across oceans and international borders is very important. Marine insurance protects the safe transport of material in all its forms from port to port. This covers the risk of theft or damage to goods in transit, natural disasters and unforeseen circumstances. Marine insurance also provides coverage against any damage or loss caused to cargo vessels, ships etc. It can cover the door to door delivery of goods worldwide, by sea, road, rail and air – including their storage on the way.
