Inland Marine Insurance provided by Browne Insurance Services

Don’t let the term “inland marine” confuse you. As opposed to “marine insurance,” which covers products when transported over water, inland marine insurance covers products, materials and equipment when transported over land—e.g., via truck or train—or while temporarily warehoused by a third party. Collisions and cargo theft are the two most frequent causes of inland marine losses.
What You Should Know About Inland Marine Insurance?

Inland marine insurance is a type of business insurance that helps cover products, materials and equipment while they are transported on land, such as by truck or train. This coverage is meant to help protect business property that is movable or used for transportation or communication purposes.

Inland marine insurance helps pay to repair or replace portable business property that is damaged by a covered peril listed in your policy.

Perils that may be covered by inland marine insurance may include:

  • Theft
  • Fire
  • Wind
  • Hail
  • Water damage

In addition to the above, an inland marine insurance policy may provide additional coverage for specific situations. This may include protection for:

  • Mysterious disappearance: Missing property where the cause of the loss cannot be discovered.
  • Accidental drop and damage: Property losses caused when an item is dropped or mishandled, either in transit or in loading/unloading.
