Maritime Insurance International provides ocean transportation intermediary bonds for our Federal Maritime Commission licensed freight forwarder clients. These bonds guaranty your compliance with the Ocean Reform Shipping Act.
If you are a freight forwarder, we provide the bond that guarantees you will execute the contracts you sign as properly licensed by the Federal Maritime Commission. Remember that this bond can be “called”, or claimed by shippers and carriers without a judgment. This bond responds to claims made by ocean, air, or motor shippers and carriers. It is important for a freight forwarder to understand that a claim can be paid out even if a judgment has not been rendered.
If you are a non-vessel operator common carrier, we provide an NVOCC bond that will respond to claims for transportation related damages against the carrier, specifically penalties & fines levied by the Federal Maritime Commission. No judgment is required to activate the payment portion of the bond. We accept online payment.
