Marine Cargo

Ocean freight is an essential component of the transportation industry, but can pose a substantial exposure to logistics companies operating within this sector of the industry, and those insurers specializing in this line of business. At HCI, we have assisted insurers and their insured logistics companies in navigating through exposures that include, but are not limited to, the following:


  • Cargo theft and shortages
  • Cargo contamination
  • Cargo spoilage and temperature abuse
  • Load shifts and upsets
  • Improper securement and packaging

This is an area of expertise with fewer qualified specialists in the field. HCI’s expertise will ensure provision of comprehensive surveys that utilize our significant claims-handling experience and superior understanding of the application of insurance policy terms and conditions that are typically engaged in these matters. HCI is also able in most circumstances to provide rapid response when needed.
