Shipping Claims Software & Shipping Risk Factors

Cargo Claims Software

Shipping risk factors can be quite high with aviation claims and trans-oceanic transportation shipping claims while goods are exposed to theft and damages resulting from vessel, environmental, and handling variables. The cost of risk can be easily underestimated and the burden of losses may be on multiple parties depending on the severity of the loss, such as the shipping company, insurance company, buyer, or manufacturer. Such business risks can be factored into transportation costs and allocated based on the value of goods, weight, dimensions, or scarcity. A1 Tracker shipping claims software gives transportation companies options for tracking such risk factors by duration, cost, volume, or even frequency of shipment which can impact the availability of that good.

Cargo Claims & Cost of Risk

A1 Tracker cargo & shipping claims software provides online claim reporting tools for claim costs, shipping contract documents, shipping notifications, and cargo claims workflow. Cargo shipping risks include assessments of shipping premiums and shipping conditions with exemptions for certain situations not covered by shipping and cargo insurance. Cargo claim software can produce claim cost history then be further analyzed to obtain cargo claim statistics for certain types of losses and help predict certain loss patterns based on seasonal weather patterns, economic patterns, resource availability, or political circumstances including workforce labor strikes and temporary hires. Shipping claims software may be tailored to your risk management needs to include  risk factors such as miles and weight per load, payroll or work hours per load. Risk factors may be compared to the sum value of cargo assets being shipped to come up with a figure representing a cost of risk to the shipping company, insurance company, and buyer, which may then be allocated by percentage to each party based on a shipping premium and insurance premium.

With A1 Tracker your company will have an expedited deployment time with personalized training for your claims administrative staff, cargo shipping managers, and employees. Your shipping claims software can also facilitate workflow and electronic communication with insurance carriers, with claim payment notifications, claim approvals, and denial notices.
