Maritime and Land Security Insurance
Maritime security & overseas land-based security insurance.
What is Maritime and Land Security Insurance?
Maritime Security Insurance, or Marine Security Insurance, is cover for the shipping industry. It is designed to provide protection for vessels sailing in troubled waters.
Land Security Insurance offers the same type of protection, but on land, rather than sea.
Cover at SJL Insurance can be provided for either types separately, or as a combined package.
Largely this type of insurance is used to protect merchant ships and businesses who may fall victim to piracy hijack and ransom in international waters.
