Allianz Insurance has launched a new, online marine cargo proposition designed for SMEs and Mid Corporate businesses.
Allianz’s Complete Cargo product provides cover for loss or damage to goods whilst in transit within the UK and to or from countries worldwide, as well as the option to include UK storage cover.
The new offering is available on Allianz’s e-trading platform QuoteSME and is supported by a new team of dedicated marine underwriters, making it a quick and easy way for brokers to trade.
It is written on an All Risks basis, designed specifically to provide comprehensive yet easy to understand cover that requires no specialist marine knowledge.
As well as being able to fully manage the policy online and having access to a dedicated certificate management system, Complete Cargo can be packaged with a wide range of other SME and Mid Corporate products.
As part of the launch, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) has also enhanced its cargo product, AGCS Cargo, which will be available to all Allianz brokers. This provides more traditional cargo cover, based on Institute Cargo Clauses, and is designed for businesses with larger or more complex requirements, offering increased limits and further cover extensions.
Neil Clutterbuck, chief underwriting officer, Allianz Insurance, said, “Complete Cargo provides a comprehensive solution for a huge range of businesses, from importers and manufacturers through to suppliers and exporters. By working with AGCS, our two products provide Cargo insurance for SMEs right up to the largest international companies, with tailored solutions to suit their requirements.
“Our brokers will also now be able to package Cargo insurance with any of our SME and Mid Corporate products, as well as any AGCS products, making it even easier to trade with Allianz and create a comprehensive insurance programme for our mutual customers.”
Allianz Insurance is one of the largest general insurers in the UK and part of the Allianz SE Group, the largest property and casualty insurer worldwide.
Around 85 million private and corporate customers rely on Allianz's knowledge, global reach, capital strength and solidity to help them make the most of financial opportunities and to avoid and safeguard themselves against risks.
In 2015, over 142,000 employees in more than 70 countries achieved total revenues of approximately 125.2bn euros.
