Cargo & Logistics


Gone are the days when simple A to B ocean marine shipments were the only insurable risk.

That’s why we believe that the best protection starts with listening and ends with a solution.

To protect all aspects of your business’s unique risks, Lockton’s Cargo & Logistics specialists work closely with you to develop bespoke cover. Our strong market sway means we can get you the best possible terms and premium rates from Lloyd’s syndicates and global insurers. 

Just some of the areas we can cover include: stock throughput, equipment damage, excess stock, perishables (including food and beverage), project cargo (including a delay in start-up), trade disruption, and many more.  
As well as insuring your risks, we help you manage them for the long term.

Our risk managers provide risk analysis and industry benchmarking services that offer you valuable insight and a competitive edge: now, and for the future.
