The transportation of goods creates a range of unique risks. Minimising your exposure to these risks requires close attention, precise policy wordings and, in some cases, specialist technology.

Damage in transit, damage caused to the property of others, inclement weather or natural disasters preventing transit are just a few of these. Some industries, such as the pharmaceuticals sector face the risk of their products failing to comply with approved specifications.

In many other organisations, the sheer administrative workload associated with arranging complex insurance cover can be daunting.

At JLT, our specialist Cargo team has met all of these challenges - and more. With a blend of experience, technical knowledge and transactional flair, we provide a full range of services. These include:

  • Global transit and storage programs
  • Stock throughput policies
  • Cargo binding authorities and facilities
  • Excess stock policies
  • Coinsurance
  • Project cargo and marine delay in start up cover
