With 1 in 10 containers and their cargo getting damaged in transit, it isn’t always possible to rely on all food sources arriving in perfect condition to their port of delivery, so although cargo claims help the exporter recoup the losses, the food crisis will still continue.
With such an increase, exporters will be looking to recoup whatever losses they can by looking into the cargo claim market, and this market could see a large increase in claims as more shippers will not want to soak up costs of their losses by being fobbed off by the Goliath carriers
Most of us love what we do or we wouldn’t do it, but do you sometimes burn yourself out? I love working in the maritime industry and especially in cargo claims, but I see so many friends and colleagues working almost 24/7 that it concerns me. Do I want to see those I work with and admire, burn themselves out? No. I want to see them successful and healthy in mind and body.
We would all love to avoid cargo damage but it’s safe to say that every shipper will suffer it at some point. Meaning you will need to claim, but unfortunately the carriers are often in the driving seat when it comes to a payout so let’s look at how we can reduce the chances of a denied claim.
