Millions of dollars’ worth of cargo moves around the world on ocean vessels every day.  Recent incidents like the MOL Comfort vessel breaking in half and sinking in the middle of the ocean remind us of the importance of being financially protected.  Damage, loss and theft do occur.  Join OWIT-Phoenix on Thursday, Sept 19, 2013 for an informative program that will focus on Marine Cargo Insurance. 

Topics will include: 

  • What types of marine cargo insurance are available?
  • What damages are covered?
  • When is the ocean carrier vs. cargo owner liable and what are their payout limits?
  • How to file and prove a claim and what documents are needed?
  • How long does it take to resolve a claim?
