Navigate Cargo Risk

Protect against unexpected cargo catastrophe loss by exploring the diversity of products, mobility of exposures, and specificity of policy provisions unique to the marine market.

Monitor Problematic Accumulations

Identify vulnerable concentrations of static cargo and measure port accumulations using detailed insights into cargo fragility and exposure accumulation.

Capture Critical Data

Collect and effectively analyze marine cargo and specie data that cannot be implemented in standard property catastrophe models.

Time and Seasonality

Analyze dwell time of specific product types and cargo seasonality of a port to understand the average and peak exposure at risk.

Marine-Specific View

Better understand your marine cargo and specie risks using a modeling framework designed for the marine market’s needs.

Enhanced Data Schema

Explicitly model coverages, adjustments for mobility, and 2,000+ combinations of products, storage, and packaging types in one solution.

Port Industry Exposure

Quantify exposure risk associated with up to 185 ports across 45 countries worldwide using Global Port Industry Exposure Databases (IEDs).  

Global Port Shapefiles

Utilize high-resolution shapefiles for important global areas of exposure accumulation.

Temporal Adjustments

Adjust the time at risk for cargo exposure to reflect that, unlike buildings and their contents, cargo is not at risk throughout the year.
