Fireside Chat: Insuring across borders: the growth of borderless coverage on freight shipments

11/9/21 1:50 pm

Mark Vickers is the executive vice president of international logistics at Reliance Partners. In this fireside chat, Vickers discusses how coverage of freight moving across the border into Mexico formerly had shipped without insurance coverage because of the tangle of rules on insuring freight into Mexico.
