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.
