What Does International Transit & Cargo Insurance Cover?

International transit and cargo insurance can protect your goods from origin to destination for damage caused by risks including:

  • Warehouse damage
  • War and terrorism
  • Piracy
  • Hijacking

Assets in transit or storage exposed to these types of liabilities can negatively impact critical business operations, especially with ongoing supply chain disruptions.

Why Clements for Your Cargo & Transit Insurance?

Clements is focused on solutions rather than products, and our policies are highly customized to fit our client’s needs. We also specialize in shipments to high-risk countries. Many providers exclude war and terrorism risks from their cargo policies, leaving a gap in coverage to the client. Clements covers those risks.
