Block Policy

An insurance policy that provides coverage for goods while they are in transit between two locations, while they are being delivered to another party, and while they are present on another's property (such as a warehouse). A block policy is a type of all risks policy; that is, it provides coverage for all losses that may occur while the policy is in effect.
