As a professional insurance broker, obtaining the proper coverage at the most competitive price gives me great satisfaction. As the role of international trade grows, the importance of cargo insurance and related coverages become more critical as Americans strive for their share of the world economy. The price of insurance coverage is very important, but claims service and underwriting skills create a comprehensive product that enables America to compete worldwide.
