Cargo and business interruption

Tailor-made cover

Threats to the normal flow of trade have become more extensive and varied as a result of increased globalisation, just-in-time processes and complex supply chains.

Cargo can encompass a number of different interests and businesses alike and London market underwriters have the appetite to write a variety of complex risks.

At Miller we specialise in arranging cargo insurance:

  • Global transit and storage programmes
  • Stock throughput policies
  • Excess stock policies
  • CAT exposed risks
  • Coinsurance and facultative reinsurance
  • Project cargo and delay in start up (DSU)
  • War on land

We are also able to provide expertise to help organisations assess less traditional insurable events which can create significant disruption to trade. These could include port blockages, civil unrest, contingent interruption risks from key suppliers or locations, company insolvencies, war or political risks like asset confiscation or trade restrictions.

Our experts provide insurance solutions tailor made to an organisation. This can protect companies against:

  • Loss of profits
  • Contractual penalties
  • Debt repayments
  • Increased operating costs  
  • Other financial interests as required

The financial consequences triggered by a supply chain loss event can also be covered under trade disruption insurance (TDI).  Extensions to coverage in the form of political risks, war, political violence, trade credit and insolvency are also available.
