Cargo owners can be exposed to liability risks for property damage, bodily injury to third parties, or even as a result of pollution from a cargo event in ocean transit. New risks — from transporting products with lithium-ion batteries to the increased size of container ships — are generating greater demand for more comprehensive liability coverage solutions.
Cargo owner’s liability insurance is designed for cargo owners, controllers, shippers, consignees, and traders of cargo. The policy provides cover for your legal and/or contractual liability, including legal expenses while your cargo is onboard a vessel, in port drayage (transporting of goods a short distance overland at a port or terminal), or in shoreside storage while in ordinary course of transit.
- Affirmative coverage for a cargo owner’s liability exposures.
- Potential liability limits of more than US$100 million.
- Robust global marketplace of insurers to access competitive insurance quotes.
- Tailored insurance from leading global insurers that dovetails with general liability and pollution legal liability policies that may be limited in scope.
