Leisure Marine Logistics FAQs

What is leisure marine?


The leisure marine industry refers to products that are associated with boating, yachting, and other water-based leisure pursuits, including sailing, powerboating, kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, and cruising.

How is leisure marine cargo insurance calculated?


When calculating insurance the following risk factors are taken into account:

  • The value of the product or parts
  • The mode of marine transport: Is it sea, air,rail, or road?
  • Which countries is the product going to or from?

The above factors will determine the insurance cost. It is likely insurers will insist there is an inspection report before the goods are loaded and that the product is securely checked and strapped in the container. The insurer may also apply a deductible/excess to any potential claim.

What is the usual estimated time for leisure marine transport with Woodland?


How long it takes to deliver marine leisure goods depends on aspects like the distance, mode of transportation and customs procedures. Generally speaking, express deliveries using air freight can take between one to seven days depending on the locations involved.
