As contributory values to General Average (GA) are assessed at the completion of the voyage, there is a possibility that these values are reduced or lost if further loss or damage to the ship or cargo occurs between leaving the port of refuge and reaching the final destination. This insurance covers the potential shortfall.
Norwegian Hull Club is well positioned with the required competence, capacity, flexibility and efficiency of handling to be a preferred provider of GA Disbursements insurance, also in cases where the claims lead is placed elsewhere.
When placing insurance with Norwegian Hull Club as Leader, an Assured has access to claims handling experience, service levels and competence of the highest quality. We handle claims and critical situations in the most professional way. We prioritize and make claims settlements much quicker than the industry average, through practical, solution driven claims handling and involvement from notification to final payment. We encourage teamwork together with the Assured and the broker.
Our world-leading contingency support and operational intelligence services are developed from handling 2.000 claims every year. We organize a wide variety of loss prevention activities for both ship and shore based staff, sharing experience from actual incidents, aimed at improving industry best practice.
