  • What Marine Insurance offers

    The scope of a marine insurance policy varies and is generally determined by the underlying nature of the risk.

    Marine Cargo insurance responds to physical loss or damage to goods imported, exported or transported within Namibia by any professional mode of transportation be it ship, plane, train or truck. Therefore it appeals widely to shippers within international trade and professional hauliers. Ask us about our stock-throughput offering and project-type cover.
