All shipping companies, including those that do their own transport risk management, are required to follow strict guidelines and procedures when it comes to shipping goods. Most importantly they need to be insured. As a result companies should only ship goods where they are fully insured. If you are shipping goods yourself, there are a few things you need to consider.
Chubb Singapore, a partner of Chubb International Limited, employs an extensive Transportation Risk Management group which is situated overseas and has years of experience in the transportation of various kind of goods ranging from: raw materials to finished products. They have been actively involved in the development of international shipping rules and have created a number of international standards related to shipping goods.
While most countries have their own Transport Risk Management policies, not all can offer the same level of quality service, as is provided by Chubb International. To determine if your shipping company has the right set of policies in place, a complete background check on the company’s directors is highly recommended.
In addition, Chubb International has established many international standards related to the safety and security of their shipping and transportation operations. These include standards for cargo and goods movement, the transportation of hazardous goods, and the transport of cargo. The goal of these standards is to ensure that the transport of cargo and goods does not pose any danger to the public, the environment, and the employees on the ships and in the shipping dock. These regulations are not in place just to ensure good customer service, but also to maintain business relationships and international peace of mind.
Many of the Chubb International standards are based on international trade rules, however there are some international regulations that are not covered in any international trade agreement between the two countries. These include rules governing the movement of live cargo and goods from one country to another and also rules governing the protection of individual rights and the environment. Both of these areas are extremely important to international trade relations and if your shipping company does not adhere to these standards then they may face stiff penalties by either the government or the other shipping company that shipped the goods.
Chubb International also provides a comprehensive training program for all their staff. This program is designed to educate everyone from the new hire, through to the senior staff members. It covers a wide range of topics related to shipping and also covers the safety and security aspects of shipping cargo and goods.
Chubb International also has an independent regulatory body which monitors the operations and compliance of their companies worldwide. This body is the International Board for Professional and Ethical Standards, which oversees the company’s compliance with international trade standards regarding transportation risk management.
Transport Risk management is a key component to successful and reliable shipping. The best companies are well aware of their responsibilities towards their clients and ensure that every shipment is conducted safely, legally and responsibly. You can only achieve this when you are aware of what it is that you are doing when it comes to shipping goods.
Shipping and the laws and regulations related to it is an incredibly complicated issue. However, the more that you learn about it the better you will be able to deal with it and you will understand what actions you need to take if a situation arises that would require you to stop the shipment. For example, if your shipment is being held up due to bad weather conditions then your company must ensure that there are no road blocks to obstruct its progress. and the company must also ensure that there are adequate communication lines to get your cargo to its destination safely.
There are many different levels of risk in any kind of industry and shipping is no different. A cargo could be stolen or damaged or an individual could get hold of the cargo and carry out a crime in order to steal it. There is also the possibility of damage to the environment when freight is improperly transported such as in the case of freight that found inside of a ship at sea when it has become damaged because of an accident.
Transport Risk Management requires a lot of thought and preparation on your behalf as there are so many factors involved. It is therefore essential to have all your ducks in a row before embarking on any shipping venture.
Cargoes and goods must be properly packed so that the shipping containers are safe for the people and the cargo as well as the environment. This is why proper documentation of the cargo and goods being shipped is essential, along with ensuring that you are carrying the correct documentation on hand to ensure the safe arrival of the goods and that you are not breaking any local or international law when transferring the goods. The same applies to the environment; the more you understand about how to manage your cargo and goods the safer they are for your company.
