Our Services > Marine Cargo Insurance
Unlike property and casualty coverage, marine insurance clauses are not filed with, nor regulated by state laws. We understand
the shipping needs of our clients and can arrange adequate coverage for all of your imported or exported cargoes.
Along with marine insurance, we can arrange your cargo insurance. Working with us you are assured of the most competitive rates
and the best available coverage. This is the result of our concentrated buying power and the high volume of insurance we provide
to a wide range of clients. Because we are arranging and controlling the movement of your cargo, we know exactly what level of
protection you will need and can provide it without gaps or overlapping coverage.
Here are a few more reasons to rely on our heroic efforts for insurance coverage:
- Single point of contact: When we arrange your cargo insurance, we will handle all of the paperwork for you, from application through
the issuing of insurance certificates. By doing so, there is less duplication of documentation and less accounting time required to verify items
such as bills, audits and monthly reports. Better still, no advance premium will be required. This can help your company's liquidity position and/or cash flow.
- Avoid excess taxes: By buying your cargo insurance domestically, you will not be subject to certain U.S. government excise taxes that
may result from the purchase of foreign insurance for U.S. imports.
- Expertise: Best of all, you will have our experienced team of people who know the international insurance industry inside and out.
They can structure and administer the coverage that is most appropriate to your needs.
- Faster insurance claims: In the event that you need to file a claim, the fact that we have immediate access to all of your cargo
documentation eliminates the need for your direct involvement in the preparation of much of the documentation that is required to process your claim.
When you purchase your cargo insurance from Rogers & Brown, we become an advocate with a vested interest in serving your insurance needs. Because we
will be directly involved in the processing of your claim, you are assured of fair treatment and timely settlement.
All claim settlements will be U.S. dollars, eliminating any concerns regarding international currency fluctuations or inconvertibility.
Because we are transportation experts, we have the expertise and know-how to expedite the processing and handling of all transit related claims.
