Cargo insurance (also called marine cargo insurance or marine insurance) is designed to cover physical damage to, or loss of, your goods while in transit to, or from, Australia.
It is important to note that shipments are not automatically covered and, in most cases, the carriers have a very limited liability, if any at all. It is generally the responsibility of the importer or exporter to have cover for their relevant shipments.
Most commercial insurers are able to offer global marine insurance as part of their policy package when insuring your other business interests. In the event that a client is shipping infrequently and the cost of an annual policy cannot be justified, we can offer marine insurance on a shipment-by-shipment basis.
