When is Marine Insurance Necessary?

If you are involved in the cargo or over-water shipping business you likely have marine insurance. However, it is also necessary for people who are shipping personal or commercial items via sea and require insurance protection. A marine insurance policy will provide coverage while your goods are at the terminal, both coming and going, and while they are in transit. 

Additionally, businesses that utilize ports can also benefit from a marine insurance policy for any work that they conduct at a terminal or other shipping locale. For instance, if you supply or lease shipping containers and have an office at a port, your marine insurance policy will cover your containers whether they are on a docked ship, in transit, or stored somewhere in the terminal. This coverage may also protect you from any loss to your office or administrative equipment. 

The main types of marine insurance policies include marine liability policies, coverage for your ship hull, and casualty insurance.
