Marine & Shipping Insurance
Insurance for Shipments by Sea, Road & Rail

We advise all our customers to have marine insurance for their shipments in place, no matter what the size. We not only arrange shipping insurance for goods in transit, but also in storage, depending on your requirements. Through our marine insurance brokerage knowledge and network, we aim to secure the best rates for you.

The final price of the shipping insurance (or premium), however, will also be determined by:

  • The type of goods you are storing or shipping
  • The value of the goods you are storing or shipping
  • The port of origin, port of destination and final destination
  • The type of shipping insurance policy you opt for.

All Risk Shipping Insurance

You can opt for shipping and marine shipping insurance written as 'all risk' insurance, which means your goods are covered from any physical loss or damage resulting from external causes (e.g. a vehicle crash, theft or natural disaster). In case of an accident, customers with this type of policy can receive the full declared value of goods, related transport and shipping charges.*

Standard Shipping Insurance

Standard shipping and marine shipping insurance also offers customers peace of mind and some (although lesser) protection for the cargo being shipped. It is important to read your insurance policy (or check with the team at Freightstar) to ensure that your business would receive some compensation regardless of whether the goods are damaged by the freight forwarder, port contractors or any other third-party. It's also important to check what the liability is.

We advise our customers to buy cargo, shipping or marine shipping insurance that guarantees full value compensation beyond liability, wherever possible.
