Insure for the unexpected

Cargo insurance is an important decision when you are shipping or transporting goods. Importers and exporters are exposed to financial impact if the shipment is lost or damaged during transportation. Cargo may be damaged by an accident or a natural disaster at any of the points from origin to destination. You may think some cargo is less prone to damage however the risk of theft or damage from weather events still exists. 

Tropical Shipping offers cargo insurance underwritten directly by a reputable insurance company. Securing the coverage is easy and in the unfortunate event of a loss, the claim process is fast and reliable.

Protect Your Cargo

  • Coverage commences from the time goods leave the shipper and/or supplier’s place of business and continues in force during the ordinary and customary course of transit to the final destination.
  • Cargo is protected against "All Risk" of physical loss or damage from any external cause irrespective of percentage of loss.
  • Insurance remains in force for fifteen (15) days after vessel discharge or upon delivery, whichever occurs first. Concealed damage must be reported within three (3) business days of delivery.
  • There is no deductible.
