Safety is a key factor of sustainability.

No port can grow sustainably with costly accidents creating claims and driving up insurance premiums. Recent events suggest that windstorms and extreme weather events are becoming less predictable, more severe and affecting areas previously considered low risk. 

Ensuring your port operations are safe and secure should be top priority. Here we aim to cover all aspects of port and terminal safety including quay crane risks, climatic risks, due diligence and contractual challenges, cargo theft and damage, misdeclaration, fire safety and much more.

However, if you have any concerns that are not covered here, you can always submit an enquiry on the right or email us at

Port and terminal risks: quay container cranes

Quay container crane accidents are the biggest cause of insurance claims for TT Club's port and terminal Members. As the impacts of climate change become more prominent, extreme weather events are occurring more frequently, increasing the risk of quay crane collapses. Such incidents can be extremely costly with damage to equipment, disruption or reduction in operations and, at worst, loss of life.

Ports & terminals cover

No two ports or terminals are the same, which is why we tailor-make policies to reflect the risks you face.

As well as port liability risks, TT Club cover can be tailored to address the combination of commercial and environmental risks faced by port authorities and terminal operators.
