Roanoke Trade Launches Innovative Risk Management Service Exclusively for Our Clients

Share This:

As part of our ongoing commitment to assist the transportation and logistics service industry in mitigating their exposures to loss, particularly regarding contractual liability, Roanoke Trade recently introduced the Trade Risk ReviewSM, exclusively available for our clients. Trade Risk ReviewSM addresses a client’s operational and legal concerns by providing affordable access to legal advice by attorneys well versed in the business activities of freight forwarders, 3PLs, customs brokers, property brokers, warehouse operators and others in the industry.

Roanoke’s Trade Risk ReviewSM provides you with insight into your operations and the legal requirements to which you’re exposed. We have made available three different providers from which to choose, with each law firm offering a unique package of services. While the programs vary in scope and pricing, they in essence include the following services:

  • A thorough analysis and review of your business activities
  • Document review including terms and conditions of service, bills of lading, warehouse receipts etc.
  • Access to reference documents pertinent to your industry
  • Preferred rates for future services

Depending on the firm you select and the level of service you would like, you can also have access to recommendations to rectify deficiencies in the terms & conditions documents; a comprehensive document portfolio, which includes ocean bill of lading, international and domestic air/ground waybills, warehouse receipt, power of attorney terms and conditions of service, credit application and delivery order; and ongoing assistance and counsel.

All you have to do is select from the program options provided that will best meet your requirements. As a Roanoke Trade client, you have access to these programs at a preferred rate making it easier to create a partnership for handling your legal needs moving forward. Contact us at 1-800-ROANOKE (800-762-6653) for more information about each of the three packages and corresponding pricing, in addition to the insurance solutions we offer to respond in the event of a loss.  Also, please note that Roanoke Trade does not provide legal services, nor do we make specific recommendations as to your selection of an attorney.
