Because anything can happen at sea.
Ocean cargo insurance is just what it sounds like: coverage for companies that transport goods via ship.
Transporting goods across the world’s waterways is becoming increasingly more dangerous, which is why, at Martin Insurance Group, we work with leading insurers to provide ocean cargo insurance. This coverage offers clients protection from a wide range of damage and loss for many categories of cargo — from point of origin to final destination.
For cargo companies of every size.
Whether your company is small, mid-size, or large, we can secure coverage across many industry sectors within the shipping field. We can insure ocean cargo carriers, freight forwarders, importers, and exporters — even air cargo carriers. In addition, we can provide coverage to support ancillary companies, such as logistics providers, project managers, customs brokers, and more. Even retail, manufacturing, and wholesale clients rely on us to obtain comprehensive and competitive ocean cargo coverage.
At Martin, we have clients in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut, including companies and organizations in Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, and Ocean Counties, as well as Bucks County, PA.
We can design a policy to address a broad range of issues that can cause problems as products are moved from their point of origin to their inland destination, including delays, errors, and regulatory mandates. We also offer enhanced coverage that protects against actions by foreign customs officials, foreign regulators, theft of cargo, spoilage, infestations on ship, and much more. Additionally, policies can be enhanced to cover domestic transportation, warehousing, and goods in processing, among other needs.
