Goods in Transit Insurance

Goods in transit insurance is an annual cover where premium is based on the value of goods in transit, at the insured’s risk, during the policy period. It is the simplest and most convenient way to cover the insured’s inland transit risks.

Either all risks of loss or damage or defined events for goods or death by natural and accidental causes or accidental causes only for livestock can be covered.
