Cargo insurance

We offer some of the most attractive marine cargo rates in the industry with very competitive rates to give you complete security and peace of mind. Of course we always handle your cargo with the greatest of care but inevitably from time to time unforeseen incidents do occur.

In common with industry practice, unfortunately your shipments are not insured automatically with full face value of your cargo unless you arrange separate Marine Insurance for each shipment. Here at UGL we highly recommend you protect your cargo in case of any damage during transit or handling, which is why we offer Marine Insurance to all our customers.
