Ocean Cargo

Worldwide Coverage for all of a company’s shipments including domestic transit and warehouse storage. Ocean Cargo opportunities can typically be found in any Commercial book of business that has manufacturing, wholesalers, retailers (brick & mortar or internet), distributors, or any company that ships goods anywhere. For US only Regional Distributors a domestic transit only cargo policy is available with broader coverage than an Inland Marine Policy.
