As ports and terminals diversify into other activities like freight forwarding and logistics, they need insurance that is flexible enough to cover new risks and eventualities. 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. Our cover is designed to operate alongside other insurances, minimising the chance of gaps or overlapping covers.
