Marine insurance is actually the oldest form of insurance in the world dating back in Ancient Greece and Rome, since the transportation of cargo using water vessels for trade has been a key industy for centuries.The commercial shipping industry is more complex than ever, constantly evolving amidst a backdrop of volatility and risks, from oil pollution to losses. International operations worth millions of dollars are conducted every day and shipping accounts for about 90% of global trade, and an extremely specific level of expertise is essential in order to effectively manage the risks involved.As global trade stretches into more remote corners of the world, the entire maritime industry enjoys new growth opportunities. It also faces new challenges, unpredictable costs, and the ever-present potential for catastrophic loss.
Marine insurance is essential for anyone transporting goods by ship or other watercraft, or for anyone engaged in operations on the sea such as towage, drilling.Marine insurance typically covers the accidental damage or theft of goods transported by sea as well as their liabilities towards third parties. Coverage may also extend to loading and special operations such as towing.
