Dubai – MENA Herald: Dubai Trade has expanded its online marine and cargo insurance platform “Tradeshield” by adding Oman Insurance to offer its customers a fourth insurance service provider.

Dubai Trade customers can now search and select competitive rates from the Abu Dhabi National Insurance Company (ADNIC), RSA, Noor Takaful and Oman Insurance, while using ‘Rosoom’, the company’s secure e-payment gateway.

The move underlines Dubai Trade’s vision to facilitate seamless trade, allowing users to compare real time insurance quotes on multiple policies and complete end-to-end purchases.

Dubai Trade CEO Eng. Mahmood Al Bastaki said: “We are pleased to have Oman Insurance join our three other insurance providers. This assures our customers competitive rates and world-class insurance for worry-free shipments.

“We continually strive to make the Dubai Trade Portal a true trade facilitating platform, while contributing to increasing the UAE’s ease of doing business international ranking and reducing trade cost and time. Customer satisfaction and comfort is our priority and with this in mind, we launched the ‘Tradeshield’ platform to eliminate unnecessary paperwork and physical visits to our offices. Users can now compare multiple insurance policies, rates and terms in just few clicks, around the clock.” 

Oman Insurance Company CEO Christos Adamantiadis said: “Delivering on our renewed customer centric strategy, we are happy to go live on the online marine platform, ‘Tradeshield’, making our marine insurance solutions available on yet another convenient and technologically relevant platform.”

Dubai Trade’s future plans on this front include the launch of cover cargo or blanket cover insurance against loss or damage to all goods moved by a specific carrier or shipper during a given period of time.
