War on Land Insurance

Most, if not all marine cargo transit insurance includes coverage against loss or damage to cargo caused by the risks of war and civil war amongst other similar risks.
What is not generally known is that since the onset of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, London underwriters have limited the cover provided against loss or damage to cargo caused by war and civil war to only whilst the cargo is in transit by air or sea, and not whilst on land.

In order to provide the protection that banks or finance houses insist upon for those of you that transact business to, from or within high risk countries, WCA Risk Management is able to provide cover for ‘war on land’.
