A down-to-earth view of container shipping
Any business with marine risks needs specialized insurance broker planning. How Alexander & Alexander looks at container shipping will help explain how we will protect your maritime operations. In this case, we look through a shipper's eye. Tracking risks from inland depot to dock, from deck to destination.
Only by working from a client's point of view can we be sure a company gets the most comprehensive, cost-efficient programs possible.
This insider's vantage point enables our marine experts to design programs for warehouse- to-warehouse protection that minimize losses and compensate for those that do occur. We sim- plify the complexities of marine insurance—barges to bumber- shoots, crews to claims, charters to captives, rigs to rivers, prop- erty to price.
Each industry has different needs. For insurance, for risk management, for human re- source management, for finan- cial services. And each of our 120 offices here and overseas has the facilities, expertise and strength to fulfill the require- ments of any company, large or small, in any industry.
We think a big reason A&A has become one of the largest and most trusted insurance brokers worldwide is that we work the same way with every client. From the client's point of view.
From the client's point of view.
