Don’t let the name fool you. Inland marine coverage should be considered as part of a comprehensive business insurance plan. Originally created to cover the transportation of goods over water, it has expanded over the years to cover goods in transit on land as well. Depending on the type of business you own, this coverage can be essential to protecting your business property. Think about the items you or your employees place in vehicles on a daily basis to get work done. Consider the valuables, including data, you own or are responsible for. Many property policies limit or exclude coverage for these items. If your business has valuables that cannot be conveniently or reasonably confined to a fixed location or insured at a standard rate under a standard form, you should consider Inland Marine coverage.
