Strike & Delay

Unexpected delays, both in port and at sea, can severely dent your earnings or wipe out all profits from a voyage. However, many delays caused by geopolitical events, the impact of climate change or technological failures may not be protected by P&I cover.

Our unique, complementary Strike & Delay cover enables you to protect yourself against the financial impact of 30 shipboard and onshore risks, and delays of up to 20 days. We can also tailor cover to suit the individual needs of your contract. 

The Strike & Delay Class of Standard Club, part of NorthStandard is now the world’s largest provider of marine delay cover. With more than 60 years of data, experience and expertise, we fully understand our members’ current needs, while ensuring our cover and service evolve to match the ever-changing requirements of our sector.

We can provide a range of cover options to match your specific needs, including:

  • Marine delay cover that allows you to protect yourself from 30 different onshore and onboard risks for up to 20 days. 
  • We can also consider complementary, fixed-premium tailored cover for up to 180 days on a case-by-case basis for a select number of shipboard risks such as delays from contraband. 


You are supported throughout by our unique, dedicated Strike & Delay team for an expert and experienced service that includes underwriting, claims and loss prevention. 

Our Strike & Delay team is also dynamic, progressive and proactive. We constantly look for new ways to protect our members, and recent enhancements have included cyber-risks and off-spec bunkers. 

In the event of a claim, our claims handlers are based across the globe, providing Strike and Delay expertise in real-time whenever needed.

We offer certainty in an uncertain world.
