Marine Cargo

Global transportation solutions for a global marketplace


Emerging markets

As goods cross borders by land, air or sea, maintaining control over them becomes increasingly difficult. Globalisation has made trade with less developed countries a reality, where weaker logistics infrastructure and theft may pose threats to freight delivery.

Maintaining expectations

Technological advances have created high expectations by customers in terms of manufacture and delivery. Supply chains need to be protected from disruption and the negative impacts on customer loyalty, company reputation and cash flow.

Managing your risks

AIG provides a risk prevention service (known as Marine Loss Control Engineering) so our customers can rely on a specialised entity to monitor their risks and to work on reducing the potential for losses or damage.

The full range of solutions

AIG offers freight insurance in all its forms: door to door, or warehouse to warehouse, by sea, land, air or rail and from raw material to finished product. We regularly cover infrastructure projects thousands of kilometres from our clients’ bases.

International is our middle name

AIG can combine technical efficiency with a pragmatic business approach, while employing our broad international network to ensure the best possible protection for our customers’ assets and their business reputation.
