Marine Insurance
Marine Insurance broadly Represent the transit insurance, however it can be further classified into the following types.

Marine Cargo
The Insurance covers the loss or damage of the cargo, whilst the goods are being transported from one destination to another by rail, road, sea, air or by post. The cargo would be covered from the time the goods leave the warehouse at the place of dispatch until it reaches the warehouse at the final destination point.

The widest cover is available under the "ALL RISKS" terms and if required even a basic cover such as loss by FIRE alone is available. The Policy is assignable and is an Agreed Value Policy. There are different types of insurance policies available depending on the voyage/transit, values. Some of these are described below:

Transits within the country (Inland Transit)
  • Where only one transit is required to be covered - Specific Policy can be taken.
  • For regular transportation of consignments such as for businesses and Corporates an Open Policy can be availed of by estimating the value of such consignments in transit over this period of cover and premium paid in advance. This provides assured cover for all the insured transits.
  • Care should be taken to see that all the transits are declared to the insurance companies as stipulated and the SI is adequate to take care of such transits. If required the SI can be increased during the period of cover.
  • A Special Declaration Policy is also available where the Total value of consignments under transit is high and attractive discount in premium could be worked out.
  • Where the goods are expected to undergo multiple transits including intermediate storage and processing - a Multi Transit Policy is available.
Where goods are being Imported or Exported-
  • Specific Policy or Open Policy as above can be arranged.
  • In addition the Customs Duty can also be insured under a separate cover in conjunction with the basic transit cover.
Inland transit policies are commonly extended to cover perils of Strike riot and Civil commotion (SRCC) and Export/Import Policies for the perils of War and SRCC on payment of additional premium.

Depending on the contract of sale terms (such as FOB, CIF etc) either the buyer or seller whose goods are to be transported can take the cover.

Even where there are no commercial transactions, but nevertheless goods are being transported, this insurance can be taken. (eg. when personal belongings are moved from one place to another following transfer of the Person)

We can arrange for hassle-free cover most suitable to the client's requirements.

Marine Hull
Basically all types of ships - whether Ocean going or plying on inland waterways (Be they steamers, fishing vessels, trawlers, launches, etc) are covered under the Marine Hull insurance. Along with the Hull - the Machinery is also covered (H & M). Vessels being used for pleasure and sports - such as pleasure yachts can also come under this. Water borne properties such as Jetties, Floating dry docks, Pontoons all come under this broad section. Apart from this, other related shipping activities are also dealt with by the Insurers under this section. Covers for activities such as - Ship building/Ship breaking or ship repairers and the liabilities arising through such activities. Also Chatterers Liabilities, P & I Protection come under the Marine Hull section.

Ship-owners, chatterers, shipbuilders, bankers, financiers of Ships or vessels who have Insurable Interest. Ports - (Port Authorities, Port Operators, and Private Jetty owners) can be covered by a comprehensive Port package Policy - which encompasses several risks such as Physical damage to the Vessels (H & M Cover) Business Interruptions, Wreck Removal, and TP Liability. Terrorism cover can also be given. Very recently, the business has been brought out of the purview of the Indian Tariff and hence insurers are free to rate the risks on their own.

Marine Sales Turnover Policy
Marine policies are generally either "specific-voyage" policies or "declaration" policies for either imports, exports, indigenous transits of raw material or finished goods, customs duty, transits from anywhere to anywhere in the world and to and from job works. While for a specific policy, the cover is issued from beginning to landing at the final destination, the other policies are generally continuous policies issued on an annual basis or for a specified period of time for an agreed value of transits based on the insured's estimate of goods movement for the specified period. It is mandatory for all transits in the agreed period to be declared.

In this perspective, a marine turnover policy has come in as a blessing for companies. It covers a company’s sales turnover unlike the other marine open policies which cover the value of goods which are offered for insurance. The company's annual estimated turnover can be covered as a single amount and all a company needs to do is to provide sales turnover figures periodically to the insurance company (usually quarterly). All the requirements of a company's Marine policies can be met by a single comprehensive policy.
