There I was, at a Careers Evening at a prestigious High School in Johannesburg representing a prestigious institution that offers an internationally recognised education programme covering Shipping, Logistics, Transport Economics among others..
Along comes Polly* (*not her real name) a bright eyed and bushy tailed aspiring Matriculant..
I go “Hello there, can I interest you in a Shipping & Logistics course”.. She goes “Logistics, what’s that ?”..
Although it may seem obvious, it is shocking to mention the least how many customers still do not take the right Cargo Insurance cover to insure their cargo comprehensively..
I don’t think anyone will intentionally not cover their cargo properly and can only assume that it is due to ignorance or lack of knowledge..
This post aims to educate everyone on what is Cargo Insurance and what steps are involved..
