TT Club - Transport and Logistics Insurance for Ports

Insurance for Ports and Terminals

As ports and terminals diversify into other activities like freight forwarding and logistics they need insurance that is flexible enough to cover new risks and eventualities.

As well as port liability risks, TT Club cover can be tailored to address the combination of commercial and environmental risks faced by port authorities and terminal operators. This might include insurance for property and handling equipment against accidental damage, weather damage, machinery breakdown or increased cost of working following an accident.

Who we insure:

Airfreight Handling Terminals
Bulk Marine Terminals
Marine Terminals
Port Authorities
River Terminals

Typical cover for ports and terminals

No two ports or terminals are the same. That’s why we tailor-make policies to reflect the risks you face. 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
Liabilities arising from errors and omissions including delay and unauthorised delivery
Third party liabilities including impact and sudden accidental pollution
Fines for regulatory breach such as customs, pollution and safety at work
Wreck removal costs
Investigation, defence and mitigation costs
Disposal costs following an accident
Quarantine and disinfection costs

Additional cover

TT Club cover is designed to operate alongside other insurances, minimising the chance of gaps or overlapping covers. Additional cover for ports and terminals can include:

Business interruption risks
Fire legal liability
Hull and P&I risks
Infringement of personal rights
Liability as a supplier of advice and information
Locomotives and rolling stock
Machinery and handling equipment
Property, from docks and berths to wharfs and jetties
Rail and road infrastructure
Ships’ agency liabilities
