Marine Cargo

Global transportation solutions for a global marketplace

As goods cross borders by land, air or sea keeping control becomes increasingly difficult. Technological advances have also created high expectations by customers in terms of manufacture and delivery. Supply chains need to be protected from disruption and the negative impacts on customer loyalty, company reputation and cash flow. Globalisation has made trade with less developed countries a reality, where weaker logistics infrastructure and theft may pose threats to delivery.

In addition to cargo insurances, for goods owners, AIG offers freight owners insurance in all its forms: door to door, or warehouse to warehouse, by sea, land, air or rail and from raw material to finished product.
