We apply our years of Cargo & Logistics experience to deliver the best possible solutions, service and support to meet our clients’ needs and expectations.
We pride ourselves on keeping at the forefront of our industry and adopting new and innovative approaches to bring the best of the London and other international markets to our clients on a direct and reinsurance basis, or through facilities and binders.
We support our client base, spanning a broad range of industries across the globe, with extensive market and industry knowledge in order to provide the most competitive solutions and widest possible covers.
OUR PRINCIPAL SPECIALITIES INCLUDE:
Stock Throughput cover:
This is suited to most industries and covers all stock and materials worldwide in transit and whilst in store. The cargo market has demonstrated itself as a viable alternative to the property market for stock whilst in store, providing a simple, cost effective, cradle to grave solution.
Storage on a primary and excess of loss basis:
As an evolution from the Stock Throughput concept, cover can be provided for stock on a standalone basis.
Ranging from soft (agricultural products) to hard commodities (oil, gas, minerals etc.), cover is arranged by providing tailor made policy wordings to specifically suit the risks inherent in each particular commodity. Cover can include Guaranteed Outturn, Contamination and Blending risks.
Perishable & temperature controlled goods:
Covers for all types of goods including fresh and frozen seafood, meat, fruit and pharmaceuticals/bio-tech products. Covers can include all risks of temperature variation and we have access to markets that will provide rejection cover following regulatory breach.
As well as covering the cargo in transit and storage, we can also arrange loss of profit cover as a result of Delay in Start Up following a cargo loss. We utilise recognised and expert Project Cargo underwriters to lead our covers who have not only the requisite knowledge of cover required but who also assist with surveys and risk management advice.
Freight operators & logistics companies:
We use specialist Freight Liability markets to cover liability for loss or damage to customer’s goods in Care, Custody and Control, including Warehousekeeper’s Legal and Errors & Omissions cover. We also have the ability to arrange higher limits on an Excess of Loss basis for these covers.
War on land, terrorism and political violence:
We have access to specialist facilities which provide cover for war on land (excluded under standard cargo policies), terrorism and political violence in sensitive and potentially volatile areas.
