Ocean marine insurance is designed to cover various hazards related to the movement of cargo. Risks are unavoidable in the shipment of goods. The cargo maybe loaded, unloaded and trans-shipped at several ports. Travel on the ocean provides it own dangers and risks.
Accidents can and do happen, and may involve your cargo one day. Almost half of all cargo in transit is insufficiently insured. Consignees and shippers are often not aware of who is at risk and who is liable. The Steamship Lines that carry your cargo can and do limit their liabilities, which are often significantly lower than the value of your cargo. It must be proven that the carrier is liable for the damages and the law only requires an insurable amount of $500.00 per package.
