War On Land / Political Violence

Events in Ukraine, mass protests in Europe and terrorist attacks in countries previously perceived as low risk, have all highlighted the need for clients to protect their cargoes against the risks associated with these events.

Many clients believe they are covered by their cargo policies under the War and Strikes Clauses, however, this is not the case and many critical exposures are excluded.

This situation is compounded by the fact that separate policies providing cover for these excluded exposures do not create an integrated solution. Due to duplication in cover, premium costs can be inflated; gaps in cover can lead to recovery issues and disputes can arise over which policy should pay in the event of a loss.

UNDERCOVER is a unique Willis Towers Watson facility created to protect all your cargo exposures in one single policy, including transits, storage and terrorism, war on land, political violence, revolution, rebellion and insurrection.
