Stock Throughput Insurance

Once goods are assembled or arrive, they either go direct to the end customer or into a storage warehouse before onward distribution. If they are going into storage, a stock throughput insurance policy could be the perfect solution.

For a business involved in import, storage and distribution or which has a continuous flow of goods, a stock throughput insurance policy can offer:

  • Insurance coverage for inbound transits to the storage premises, whilst there, and subsequent delivery to the final customer.
  • Coverage at own or third party storage premises.
  • Cover for multiple transits between premises and to or from customers can be included.
  • Cover for the goods on site or at customer’s premises. NMU may be able to provide cover for stock at retail locations.


Stock throughput benefits

  • A single policy provided by NMU ensures that a loss does not fall between different policies and removes the potential for differing insurers to dispute where a loss occurred.
  • Continuity of cargo all risks cover.
  • Cost benefits, by having a single rather than multiple policies.
  • Simple administration saving time.

The NMU Complete cargo solution, also gives policyholders access to:

  • don’t normally require formal supportive documentation,
  • are handled by a dedicated in-house team of experts to process settlement, and
