Marine Insurance

W.M. Shipping are able to offer competitive transit insurance cover for all modes of transport. The belief that liability cover provided by carriers is adequate is wrong. We always recommend Customers ensure that they have correct cover in place prior to any physical movement. Insurance is an important facet of international trade and correct advice should be sought.

This area of insurance is vast and most risks can be covered in the local market, some of which are listed below; however, the placement of non-conventional risks is also available through our association with specialised underwriters throughout the world.

  • Cargo – including sea, land or air globally
  • Transit cover – all covers relating to transit including liability
  • Stock throughputs – covering longer term storage and/or distribution and warehouse risks to final destination including modification to the cargo
  • Strikes and war risks
