Within the context of the insurable interest in cargo insurance contracts, in this publication the writer analyses the theoretical aspects of the insurable interest and the relevant laws. Dealing with the problems of determining the insurable interest in cargo insurance contracts the writer has examined the possible options of insurance of the cargo in transit, and while analysing the law governing transport and the sale of goods he examines a person‘s insurable interest in the cargo insured and legal remedies to protect such an interest by concluding a cargo insurance contract. The writer believes that the legal regulation of the insurable interest in Lithuania, interpreting the insurable interest as a loss sustained by a policyholder, the insured or the beneficiary upon an event insured against, fails to guarantee the protection of proprietary and economic interests of persons engaged in the circulation of commodities. Laws governing cargo insurance contracts in Lithuania do not provide a flexible protection of interests of the participants in trade operations and impedes the development of trade and transit, therefore the legal regulation of cargo insurance, especially of the insurable interest should be improved.
