Since accidents do happen when transporting goods, cargo insurance and risk management is a must for all shippers along the supply chain, whether you’re shipping domestically or internationally. This class introduces the basic concepts needed to understand and manage both physical and financial shipping risks, as well as the characteristics of carrier legal liability vs. cargo insurance policies. It also goes into detail about Cargo Insurance Certificates.
