In our latest podcast, Isabelle Therrien, IUMI Cargo Committee Chair and Senior Vice President Canada, Marine Cargo at  Falvey Insurance Group, discusses misdeclared goods and the related challenges facing shipping and the marine insurance industry. Isabelle emphasised the importance of increasing awareness and collaborating with all relevant stakeholders to ensure dangerous cargo is adequately declared and handled throughout the supply chain. A common example for DGs are lithium-ion batteries which will also be on the agenda of this year’s Cargo Workshop at the IUMI annual conference in Edinburgh.
