Freight logistics

Tokio Marine Kiln has developed insurance products to respond to the complex legal risks faced by organisations involved in the transport and shipping industries. Our focus is on national and international forwarders and logistics and multi-modal transport operators. Businesses in this sector also face a wide range of legal-liability exposures, often across several different jurisdictions, making this an area where Tokio Marine Kiln’s international expertise both in underwriting and claims can benefit our clients.

Our underwriters are market leaders in offering liability insurance to the marine, transport and logistics sectors through our specialist marine liability team. Several of our underwriters have specific marine industry experience prior to joining the insurance business. This detailed knowledge of the shipping and transport industries means our underwriters have a thorough understanding, and first-hand experience, of the sector’s risks.

We can offer liability coverage on many types of operations including:

  • Freight forwarders and logistics operators
  • Ports and terminals insurance
  • Transport operators
  • Warehousing and distribution companies
  • Ships agents and vessel charterers

We also cover physical loss or damage for:
