Port Liabilities :
Port operators occupy a unique position in the global logistics chain which exposes them to a wide variety of liability risks. As well as both marine and land based risks, they are also exposed to both international and domestic legal regimes. The service offered by port operators is often a diverse combination of landlord and operational services which include marine traffic control, cargo handling and storage facilities, security services, emergency response services, environmental protection, channel maintenance, advisory services, residential and commercial development, and provision of public facilities.
Terminal Operator’s Legal Liability: This marine port liabilities policy is designed to provide the terminal operator with coverage for damage to cargo while in their care, custody and control for purposes of import and export. This coverage is typically combined with Comprehensive Liability and/or Stevedore’s Legal Liability and Wharfinger’s Legal Liability for a complete liability program but can be written mono-line if needed.
