Overview

Cargo and Shipping Insurance in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has long been one of the world’s key shipping hubs, and for many years was the home to the world’s busiest port (now located in Singapore). However, despite the relative slowdown in Hong Kong’s shipping industry in recent years, the SAR continues to be a key intermediary in facilitating the global movement of goods and products to every corner of the planet.

No matter whether you are exporting or importing goods from around the world, or if you are transporting products in Hong Kong and the greater China region, there is a risk that your cargo will suffer damage or go missing before reaching the final destination – a Typhoon, after all, could still blow a shipping container off the side of a vessel!

A Marine Cargo and Shipping insurance plan from CCW Global will ensure that you are covered against a diverse range of risks which can threaten your shipment, no matter whether you are sending your delivery by ship, plane, or land transport.
