With the surge in e-commerce activities, logistics companies are handling a larger volume of shipments, and this increases the risk of loss or damage.

This makes logistics insurance an essential component of risk management, providing coverage against potential financial losses resulting from various incidents that may occur during the transportation of goods.

To that end, the global logistic insurance market size is expected to reach $70.46 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 2.8% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.
