Expert, End-to-End Solutions for Complex Markets

The global ocean cargo insurance industry is experiencing a tremendous amount of shrinking capacity. Many companies that were providing insurance for Ocean Cargo are no longer operating and those who still are have significantly decreased their offerings and capacity. With more than 52,000 merchant ships trading internationally and in domestic waters, there is a vast need to provide coverage solutions for this industry.

We offer a wealth of expertise, market access and capability to continue offering insurance for the shipping industry. A global policy from Burns & Wilcox provides true end-to-end coverage whether by Air, Ocean, Rail, Truck. Within the Commercial Marine space, there are other classes of business that require expertise and Burns & Wilcox has invested in finding the talent required to underwrite these risks.
