Marine Insurance

Over 100 years of marine insurance experience

Protecting transport and marine insurance risks has been one of our core activities since the formation of the Allianz Group in 1890.

Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty today provides global marine insurance for all types of marine risks, from single vessels to the most complex multinational businesses.

Operating from major marine insurance hubs such as Hamburg, London, New York, Singapore and Paris, our specialist teams include master mariners and cargo experts as well as insurance professionals.

These global marine insurance hubs coordinate a local service delivered through our network in more than 160 countries, providing expert underwriting, responsive local claims support and preventative risk consulting – whenever and wherever it is needed.

Our experienced underwriters, claims professionals and risk consultants service clients throughout the marine industry, from a warehouse in Rio de Janeiro to a blue-water vessel in the Baltic to a cargo transit bound for Shanghai.
