Trade Disruption

Two special risks underwriters in discussion

Whereas a standard Loss of Hire insurance covers marine perils and loss due to physical damage to the vessel, the TDI policy will extend to many other external sources of interruption which are outside the control of the ship owner or manager, such as:

  • Terminal fire
  • Extreme weather
  • Natural disaster
  • Political instability
  • Changes in legislation

TDI is structured in the same manner as Loss of Hire. It indemnifies the Assured for an agreed number of days, excess of a deductible period and is a natural extension where we already insure Loss of Hire, but can also be written on a stand-alone basis.
