COVID-19’s impact on the marine industry

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and reduced cargo throughput into many international ports, the flow on impact to sea freight and other marine logistics operators has been significant. 

Given the challenge this creates to the flow of imports, exports and distribution of goods in key Asian markets, and increased storage times at ports and terminals, we strongly recommend the ongoing review of insurance and risk programs to ensure they remain fit for purpose.
