Marine cargo insurance is one of the oldest insurance products around. Given global trade, it remains a highly relevant and significant tool to manage risk and promote commerce. While the insurance product itself may be old, some of the perils to cargo have shifted and grown in magnitude. Technology-enabled theft is one area where pirates use more nimble and sophisticated means to steal. Severe weather is another area where the safe passage of cargo may be placed at increased risk.
