What is Inland Transit Insurance?

Essentially, an inland transit policy is a transportation insurance policy. Typically, it covers all types of goods during transportation as well as damage to ships, cargo terminals or marine infrastructure.

Although there are nuances in each cover that can be specific to your needs and different to one another, the typical coverage is as follows: 

  • Accidental damage - physical damage that occurs as a result of an unexpected and non-deliberate external action
  • Insured events - events nominated by the insurer, commonly known as fire, collision, overturning covers
  • Collision - damage caused due to the collision of the vehicle, vessel, train, aeroplane tha carries the cargo. It may be a collision between two carriers or it might involve the carrier hitting a stationary object such as a crane, bridge, wall, crane, or tree

Is Inland Transit Insurance important?

It is a policy that is often overlooked, yet can be so crucial to businesses. Even if there's no shipment over sea, it essentially provides coverage from point A to point B. Should any of the products go missing or break during the transportation of a third party, compensation can be made per the policy. With globalization, orders are filled from around the world and the risks continue to surge, so it is highly important to fill this gap in your insurance policy.
