Ensuring the safety and security of cargo during marine transportation is non-negotiable in today’s competitive world. With the myriad of risks associated with sea freight, from adverse weather conditions to vessel accidents, having comprehensive marine insurance coverage is essential for mitigating potential losses and protecting your bottom line. At Zarach, we understand the complexities of marine insurance and are dedicated to providing our clients with the expertise and guidance needed to safeguard their shipments.

Why Marine Insurance Matters

Marine insurance serves as a financial safety net, offering protection against a wide range of risks that can occur during transit by sea. These risks include:

  • Damage to Cargo: Cargo can be exposed to various hazards during transportation, such as rough seas, handling errors, and accidents, leading to damage or loss.
  • Theft and Pilferage: Cargo theft and pilferage are significant concerns in the maritime industry, particularly in certain regions with higher criminal activity rates.
  • Delays and Disruptions: Delays in transit, port congestion, and unexpected rerouting of vessels can result in increased exposure to risks and potential losses.
  • General Average: In the event of a maritime emergency, such as a vessel grounding or fire, general average may be declared, requiring all parties involved in the voyage to contribute to the losses incurred.
  • Force Majure: “Acts of God” including events or circumstances beyond the parties’ control, for example, natural disasters or the outbreak of hostilities.

The Importance of Comprehensive Coverage

David W. Balcer, our Export Compliance Officer, underscores the critical importance of marine insurance in today’s uncertain times:

“Every shipment should be covered by marine insurance, especially in these uncertain times. With consistent delays, port omissions, rail delays, vessel rerouting, uncertainty in regions, pilferage increases, etc., cargo is sitting longer today than in past times. The longer the cargo delays, whether at the rail or ports, the greater opportunity for cargo to be subject to damage, pilferage, etc.”
