Please join expert legal and insurance panelists, colleagues and Directors from CIFFA’s National Board in an engaging morning discussion focused on some current issues facing freight forwarders, importers and exporters.
In the panel discussion ”If Everything is Coming Your Way, You’re Probably in the Wrong Lane” Canada’s leading transportation legal and insurance experts share their take on risk filled scenarios that should be top of mind as we head into 2012. When business people start taking short cuts, and things seem to be going just a bit too efficiently…. there may well be a price to be paid. By not following convention or best practices in the securement of bills of lading, or in the lack of due diligence or screening in the selection of interline or other carriers, things could go from not so great to worse. Invite your clients to join us as we explore two current issues in today’s commercial environment that are fraught with risk.

Release of Cargo Without the Original Bill of Lading – Error or Fraud?
Exactly what are the consequences of releasing cargo before obtaining original BLs? What steps should the reputable forwarding company take to mitigate risks? We’ll review some of the commercial realities freight forwarders face every day – and the risks attached to those realities for freight forwarders and importers.
Identity Theft: Just Who is it that is Picking up Your Cargo?
The involvement of a surface transport freight intermediary and “double brokering” practices may present efficiencies in the movement of cargo but they also enhance the risk of the theft and of cargo not making it to destination. What is happening in the current market and what steps might be taken to prevent “identity theft”?
