Commodity transportation insurance, which is a very comprehensive type of insurance, covers the guarantee of the cargo carried from one point to another by maritime transportation, airline transportation, road transportation or railway transportation against the damages that may occur during transportation. Commodity transportation insurance is divided into three parts: Dead loss: Transportation is the case where the load made by means of transportation is damaged in such a way that it loses all its value.   Limited Coverage: In addition to the risk of full loss, depending on the various accidents that the transport vehicle will be involved in (these can be listed as collision, collision, fire, overturn, etc.), the load is covered for partial damages.   Broad Coverage: It is a type of insurance that includes all kinds of risks except for the legally determined exceptions. Liability insurances are an insurance type that can be preferred by shipyard owners, marina owners and port operators together with companies that transport commodities on domestic or international roads. Companies that carry out transportation by road in the country benefit from the sub-branch of their liability insurance, which is the T.M.M.; that is, the Carrier Financial Liability Insurance. Companies that will carry out transportation abroad benefit from the type of insurance known as C.M.R. Boat insurances are valid for transportation activities carried out by all kinds of sea vehicles. All kinds of damages and losses that may occur during maritime transportation are covered by boat insurances.
