Flexible logistics cover for your people and your business

Bellwood Prestbury provides logistics insurance for harsh, politically unstable or remote territories where war and terrorism risks would not be covered as standard cover. We can provide transport & logistics insurance to organisations involved in the transport and shipping industry such as freight forwarding and logistics companies.

High-Risk logistics insurance for all your needs

High-risk logistics insurance is essential for companies operating in war zones, traversing politically unstable regions or running supply operations through known kidnap and ransom territories. Bellwood Prestbury can provide a wide range of logistics industry insurance options including cargo cover for international goods in transit, property and assets, and commercial general liabilities as well as insurance to cover drivers, and in-country operational managers.

Our recent experience includes highly sensitive loads being shipped into Somalia, and cover for road supply routes through Pakistan into Afghanistan.

Our Lloyd’s Coverholder status enables us to create bespoke, flexible, high-risk logistics insurance with total confidentiality, ensuring that your people and your valuable cargoes are properly protected before they leave. Our cover can include war and terrorism risks.
