Cargo

We provide cargo insurance for all types of goods in transit – by sea, air, or overland – on a worldwide basis. Coverage may be on a primary or excess basis, in or beyond the ordinary course of transit. Our clients range from multi-million to multi-billion dollar businesses.

Ascot’s cargo team has one of the largest cargo accounts in the Lloyd’s market. Our entrepreneurial flair and focus on clients has resulted in a phenomenal level of growth over a relatively short time. With a flexible, open-minded approach to business, we are able to consider a wide range of risks and to tailor coverage to meet client’s individual needs. We pride ourselves on service and availability. We also travel extensively to build and maintain client relationships and gain a true understanding of their needs and the risks we’re writing.

As a multi-line Syndicate we can offer broad coverage together with flexible conditions. Whether it is for a large pharmaceutical company with a worldwide transit and stock programme or a hi-tech clothing company needing excess stock capacity at a single location, we can tailor a suitable policy. We also support niche MGA’s and binding authorities.

One of our niche products offers essential coverage for cargo war on land, for clients sending goods into high risk areas. Please contact one of our underwriters for more information on Ascot’s cargo products and services.
