Marine insurance is incredibly important for ship owner, cargo owner or freight companies. Firstly, it covers cargo owners who traditionally had to cover the costs of any damages to, or loss of cargo themselves - regardless of whether it’s a result of a natural disasters or an accident. Secondly, it covers ship owners in the event of a vessel being damaged, or lost.
