Determining the extent of damage to prevent it from increasing

In the logistics, transportation, and insurance sectors, a variety of claimants, including carriers, shippers, and freight forwarders, carry the crucial responsibility of loss mitigation. This process requires accurately determining the extent of damage to prevent it from escalating. No matter the nature of the claimant, the core principle remains the same:  take reasonable steps to minimise further loss.

Failing to evaluate damage appropriately carries significant risks. The inability to accurately assess the extent of the damage can lead to inadequate or ineffective recovery efforts, thereby exacerbating the overall impact of the loss.

This damage assessment goes beyond the physical damage. It also encompasses broader implications of the loss, such as its impact on business operations and the potential for more significant losses if immediate measures are not implemented.

By taking proactive steps to mitigate loss, claimants can minimise the suffering caused by the damage, ultimately helping to control costs and promote a swift resolution. Remember, effective loss mitigation is a shared responsibility, crucial for overall risk management.

Cargo Owners' Victories in Loss Mitigation

Operational Efficiency

Orchestrating a strategic response to incidents is vital

The absence of a well-defined protocol for handling incidents can lead to unnecessary delays and bloated costs.

Poorly executed or inadequately negotiated salvage operations hinder asset recovery.

Inefficient communication between parties involved can cause misunderstandings and prolong claim resolutions.

A lack of a centralized system for managing claims can create confusion, hampering speedy recovery.

Maximized Recovery

Strategic actions for optimum returns.

Accurately assessing the extent of damage is key to initiating appropriate and effective recovery efforts.

Poor negotiation skills can lead to less favorable settlements from insurers or at-fault parties.

Inadequate storage or handling of damaged goods can decrease their value and recovery potential.

A limited network of legal and industry experts can hinder the ability to effectively manage international claims.

Expert Application

Winning with expert knowledge and strategies

Misinterpretation of insurance policies and contracts can lead to inadequate claims handling.

In-house claims handlers may be insufficient resources for managing complex losses.

Lack of expertise in dealing with regulatory bodies can prolong the claims process and escalate costs.

Insufficient industry knowledge can lead to ineffective mitigation strategies.



Insurance Brokers & Loss Mitigation

Navigating loss mitigation’s maze, insurance brokers stand as dependable guides for cargo owners. However, maintaining this balance is challenging – a misstep can erode client trust, jeopardizing future business. Their roles encompass managing international claims, maintaining precise claim documentation, and negotiating favourable settlements.

Understanding these complexities necessitates deep knowledge of loss mitigation processes. But with specialist insights bolstering their strategies, brokers can adeptly turn challenges into victories.

Salvage Management

Our salvage management encompasses repairs and replacements, as well as exploring direct or alternative uses for goods. This could involve market research, tendering for collection, and outsourced sales. We also handle the disposal of goods. We understand that perishable or daily-use goods require maximum efforts during salvage. With MarlinBlue, we will evaluate the best option considering the amount of recoverable product, its lifespan, and available offers. We take care of removal, handling, and transportation (towing), and seek storage options, including dry-docking.

Loss Adjusment Consultancy

For insurance companies, the goal is to maximize the salvage value and minimize the total loss. Through our Loss Adjustment service, we offer insurers a way to provide added value to their clients. This service is particularly crucial in situations involving a breach of contract or incidents leading to damage. In these cases, all claimants must avoid negligence and act diligently.

Insurance companies, as defendants, play a pivotal role in guiding this process. They often provide legal advice to assist claimants in understanding their responsibilities and navigating the complex world of loss mitigation. Moreover, post-subrogation, insurance companies can also become claimants themselves, aiming to recover payouts from third parties responsible for the damages.

By availing our Loss Adjustment service, insurers can empower their clients with expert advice and hands-on support, potentially reducing overall losses and fostering stronger client relationships. Additionally, this service may assist insurers in their own recovery efforts post-subrogation, ultimately improving their bottom line.
