Illegal entry via containers has recently hit the headlines with the sad deaths of a number of immigrants in a reefer container that arrived in Essex. Whilst this is thankfully a rare and extreme occurrence illegal entry via containers and trailers is a huge problem for cargo owners, logistics providers and their respective insurers.

The International Underwriting Association (IUA) market briefing will explore the how to’s and how not to’s of inter-continental transportation, how these situations are managed on the ground by the Authorities, drivers and Surveyors as well as how the supply chain and insurance premiums are impacted by these acts. We will also look at the potential recourse actions available.
