TT Club - Transport and Logistics Insurance for Ports

Insurance Cover for Ship Operators

TT Club insurance for ship operators offers a comprehensive package of liability and equipment cover to ship owners, charterers and combined transport operators in deep sea, short sea and river trades.

Designed to operate in conjunction with P&I cover, TT Club cover can include protection for wider business activities such as freight forwarding, ships’ agency or terminal operations. Our cover also provides protection for investment in capital equipment required by most finance houses and comprehensive liability and equipment insurance to meet lessors’ insurance needs.

Who we insure:

Airfreight Handing Terminals
Bulk Marine Terminals
Marine Terminals
Port Authorities
River Terminals

Typical cover for ship operators

TT’s standard insurance for ship operators includes access to our worldwide equipment survey programme, designed to speed up claims processing and provide a body of loss prevention data accessible to Members.

Policies are tailor-made to meet your precise needs, but typically, cover may include:

Liabilities for loss of, or damage to, cargo, customers’ equipment and ships
Loss of, or damage to, equipment including loss due to strikes, riots and terrorist risks
General average and salvage
