INTRODUCTION:

INTRODUCTION Having a good risk management policy makes good business practice. Examining and evaluating carrier’s risks and the cargo owner are likely to be more careful and prudent since appreciating risk is one step closer to acting more cautious. Insurance is the most common form of risk management. This presentation shall look at the risks of the carrier and cargo owner are exposed to, and the process of insurance.

WHENEVER GOODS ARE MOVED THEY ARE PRONE TO POTENTIAL HAZARDS:

WHENEVER GOODS ARE MOVED THEY ARE PRONE TO POTENTIAL HAZARDS Understanding what happens when and where goods are damage, who is at fault and how to claim from the responsible party enables carrier to safeguard the cargo owner/interest as well as handle claims expediently and competently.

Slide 4:

CARGO INSURANCE-FULL VALUE OF THE CARGO CARGO INSURANCE CARRIER LIABILITY

WHAT IS INSURANCE?:

Insurance is essentially a contract between two parties. The first party is the assured, insured or policyholder: These terms are used interchangeably and are all synonymous with the person who wishes to transfer a risk. The second party is the insurance company, insurer or underwriter: Again these names are all used interchangeably and are all synonymous with the party agreeing to take on the risk of the assured in return for a premium. WHAT IS INSURANCE?

PRINCIPLES OF MARINE CARGO INSURANCE:

INSURABLE INTERESTS UTMOST GOOD FAITH (UBBERRIMA FIDES) PRINCIPLE OF INDEMNITY PRINCIPLE OF RECOVERY/SUBROGATION PRINCIPLES OF MARINE CARGO INSURANCE

INSURABLE INTERESTS:

INSURABLE INTERESTS One may only buy insurance in a marine venture if there is an insurable interest i.e. if the person stands to benefit, or expects to benefit from the safe arrival of the insured goods and will be adversely affected by any damage or loss. Consequently, different persons may have an insurable interest in the goods at any one time, e.g. an exporter, or confirming house or bank which advances funds to the exporter under, say, a letter of credit. The assured must have an insurable interest at the time of effecting the insurance , except in the case of marine insurance where in order to recover under the policy, the person must be 'interested' at the time of the loss.

UTMOST GOOD FAITH (UBERRIMA FIDES) :

UTMOST GOOD FAITH ( UBERRIMA FIDES ) The assured must disclose to the insurer all material circumstances of which he is aware of or, ought to be reasonably aware of, which could affect the risk he is transferring. A material circumstance is something that had the insurer been aware of, at the time of inception of the insurance policy, may have affected his decision in either underwriting the risk, deciding on the level of premium or, terms applicable. Failure to do so will result in a void contract giving the insurer the legal right to refuse to compensate the assured should a loss occur, irrespective of whether the non-disclosure was intentional, inadvertent or not directly related to the loss.

INDEMNITY:

INDEMNITY The contract of marine insurance is a contract of indemnity, i.e. in the event of the assured experiencing financial loss or having to incur certain expenses arising from loss of, or damage to the goods, caused by any of the perils stated in the insurance contract, the insurer undertakes to compensate the assured for the financial loss he has suffered. This is opposed to other forms of insurance, such as, building insurance where the underwriter would undertake to build a new building to replace one destroyed by fire.

PRINCIPLE OF RECOVERY/SUBROGATION :

PRINCIPLE OF RECOVERY/SUBROGATION Subrogation happens when any rights which the assured may have against third parties, such as carriers, are transferred to the underwriter. Thus for cargo contaminated by saline water the cargo insurers would compensate the assured and through their right of subrogation pursue the carrier for compensation of their loss. The assured, however, may only recover from one source, e.g. the insurer, in respect of loss or damage. In case of total loss the insurer retains title to the damaged good which he may dispose of as he wishes.

SUE & LABOUR:

SUE & LABOUR The assured should act as if he was a prudent uninsured person . If the owner of goods who just watched his goods being destroyed would not be covered by his insurance as he failed to ameliorate the loss. There are various costs incurred by cargo owner/carrier during the process of investigating a claim, defending his interests and mitigating his loss, e.g. legal and survey fees, storage, separation of cargo, unloading etc. If there is an insurance policy in force these expenses may be recoverable under sue & Labour. Even if the Forwarder is not himself responsible, he may not be able to recover all the costs he has incurred from another party, hence the need to insure against this risk.

MORAL HAZARD :

MORAL HAZARD Moral hazard is the risk arising from the nature and behaviour of human beings connected with the subject matter of the insurance e.g.: fraud - “staging” of a loss carelessness - not performing duties unreasonableness – in interpreting the policy trend of events – factors affecting the larger picture such as economy of a nation. Moral hazards are different from physical hazards e.g. packaging, loading conveyance etc.

THE SHIPOWNER AND INSURANCE:

THE SHIPOWNER AND INSURANCE Shipowner’s Insurance Liability Insurance Placed with either a mutual Protection and Indemnity Club (P&I Club) or fixed premium insurer e.g. a syndicate at Lloyd’s of London Hull & Machinery Insurance Policies incorporating either Institute Time Clauses Hulls 1983 or 1995 or International Hulls Clauses 2003
