The Gallagher Difference

The Challenge.

A large, U.S.-based freight forwarder and logistics provider with an antiquated cargo liability, shippers interest, and errors and omissions (E&O) program was looking for a broker with expertise in the transportation and logistics industries in South America, Asia and Europe.

Our Action.

For seven years, Gallagher had managed the company's Property and Casualty insurance programs, delivering better-than-market renewal results. After providing business continuity planning solutions in the wake of COVID-19 to reevaluate their supply chain risk, the client agreed to expand our team's scope to the entire domestic and international cargo program. We used the CORE360 model for a deep analysis, to provide solutions to the client's immediate needs and develop proactive strategies.

The Result.

The CORE360® analysis provided extensive feedback and recommendations. As a result, we radically improved the cargo sub-limit from $1 million to $4 million, the shipments-on-deck limit from $40,000 to $4 million, and losses incurred without the insurer's consent prior to agreement limit from $100,000 to $4 million, resulting in reduced coverage gaps. Additionally, we assigned a dedicated claims advisor to aid in resolving complex claims.

Overall, we provided a holistic solution that improved their risk profile and gave liquidity for their operation. We also became the agent of record for their E&O business.
