Ocean Marine and River Insurance-Tugboats-Marine Cargo

 
 

Ocean Marine Insurance coverage has been around since the beginning of ocean and river trading.  Ships carrying cargo such as gold, spices, and treasures were lost at sea and up rivers  due to storms, piracy, mutiny, fire and other causes. Owners and Traders  found that if the entire vessel or the entire ship were to be lost, then the entire ship’s cargo was lost.  Ship Owners decided to band together to better plan how to overcome and prevent such losses and developed practices as using several ships to carry cargo  instead of just one ship which reduced the chance of having a total loss of the ship’s cargo.  Thus shipping insurance, cargo insurance, hull insurance, liability insurance and all forms of marine insurance, ocean insurance and maritime insurance came to be.  Ocean Marine Insurance, Admiralty Insurance, Marine Employers Liability Insurance (MEL) Ocean Insurance , ocean cargo insurance, and river cargo insurance came to be.
