Today, every aspect of the marine risks insured can be monitored in  real-time – hull, machinery, cargo, containers. Nevertheless, the industry relies on marine surveyors, technical inspectors and consultants to advise on claims and reduce risk.

In our view, the strategic priorities for the industry are:

  • Data visibility and automation for simplifying the value chain
  • Visibility and analysis of assets and risks – understanding of exposures
  • Agile underwriting and claims handling

We work with parties throughout the supply chain to advise on:

  • Losses incurred for individual orders/shipments of high-value cargo
  • Processing of cargo at the port of origin
  • Cargo in transit (shipment)
  • Assets in transit
  • Processing of freight at the destination port
  • Offshore asset protection and sustainment
