Marine Insurance is an assurance that the goods transported from the country of origin to the land of destination are insured. Marine insurance covers the loss/damage of ships, cargo, terminals, and includes any other means of transport by which goods are transferred, acquired, or held between the points of origin and the final destination.

Shipping companies and Marine Logistics are exposed to risks at every step. From the Ports till they reach the destination, they are at the whim of the ocean. The physical circumstances are not the only risk a shipping company undergoes. As evidenced by the recent event of suez canal blocked by Evergreen Cargo Ship, The blockage had caused disruption to deliver over $9 billion worth of goods each day, approximate $54 billion trade loss had been estimated.
