Loss Prevention in Transportation to Ensure Product Quality : Insights from the Cargo Insurance Sector

Transport operations are vulnerable to many types of risks due to an
increasing dynamic and structural complexity of today's supply chain networks.
Globally distributed sourcing and production lead to more transported goods in
general but also to more high-value cargoes being shipped around the world.
However, detailed information about the transport condition and integrity are
not available in the end-to-end chain as transportation operations lack in full
transparency. Therefore, this paper identifies causes and risks of cargo-related
losses by an analysis of cargo insurance claims. Based on these results, appropriate preventive measures to improve the product quality during transportation are derived.
