The main areas of coverage that ports and terminals purchase insurance for are construction, liability, property, equipment, and business interruption. They often buy coverage for other marine related risks, such as environmental. Insurance coverage is also available for the diverse activities at ports and terminals, such as ship repairs, railhead management, and warehousing.

Buyers of insurance include: port authorities, municipalities, harbor authorities, terminal operators, depot operators, stevedores, wharf owners/keepers, and warehouse keepers.

Increasingly, ports and terminals are looking for information and data efficiencies. These might be in relation to freight systems, passenger booking systems, or customs requirements. The risk of computer outages or cyberattacks is very real. Ports and terminals need to understand their weak points and be able to quantify risk in order to manage it, improve their resilience, or insure against it.
