As goods cross borders by land, air or sea keeping control becomes increasingly difficult. Globalisation has made trade with less developed countries a reality, where weaker logistics infrastructure and theft may pose threats to freight delivery.
AIG provides a risk prevention service (known as Marine Loss Control Engineering) so our customers can rely on a specialised entity to monitor their risks and to work on reducing the potential for losses or damage.
AIG can combine technical efficiency with a pragmatic business approach, while employing our broad international network to ensure the best possible protection for our customers’ assets and their business reputation.
Technological advances have created high expectations by customers in terms of manufacture and delivery. Supply chains need to be protected from disruption and the negative impacts on customer loyalty, company reputation and cash flow.
AIG offers freight insurance in all its forms: door to door, or warehouse to warehouse, by sea, land, air or rail and from raw material to finished product. We regularly cover infrastructure projects thousands of kilometres from our clients’ bases.
AIG is committed to building strong, lasting relationships with clients. They can draw on the servicing and claims of our offices across the globe, including key emerging markets, to ensure a uniform and reliable experience

Proactive Loss Prevention
Marine Loss Control Engineering (MLCE)strives to avoid losses by analyzing potential exposures and presenting tailored recommendations to minimize them. We provide clients with an outline of potential problems and their solutions based upon our loss control capabilities, local knowledge and global strengths.
A risk assessment could be one or a multiple of the following depending on the type of business and the insurance taken out: a review of the insured’s business soon after inception; appointment of surveyors for cargo movements; orchestrating a ‘Kick-off’ meeting for a project cargo; a review of claims; reviewing transport documentation and commenting thereon; warehouse risk assessment; carrier risk assessment etc.
Treating our clients as partners in the process, we are diligent in our efforts to develop and implement strategies for eliminating or reducing loss exposures to mutual benefit.
Reactive Loss Control
MLCE strives to prevent future losses by analyzing client loss frequency and severity trends and implementing practical, feasible recommendations in accordance with the needs and requirements of each insured.
MLCE strives to ensure open lines of communication, to act as a “knowledge centre” and exchange essential information that will assist the client, underwriter and MLCE team in carrying out loss prevention initiatives during the policy period.
Centres of Excellence
The Marine Loss Control Engineering Team consists of a global network of 16 strategically placed, full time, loss control managers, made up of seasoned professionals with 25 years of experience in the industry on average, most with sea-going experience and licensed as Master Mariners. The team also has wide ranging complimentary expertise as former cargo surveyors, port captains and claims specialists as well as specialized skill and experience in areas such as cargo crime prevention, logistics, and packaging.
To take advantage of the team’s complimentary skills and expertise as well as maintain a worldwide consistent approach and maximize our effectiveness in delivering the full range of loss control services to our clients on a local level, the team has developed “Centers of Excellence” (COE) for the following disciplines:
Each COE includes a committee of MLCE managers with the necessary expertise to ensure that our services remain on the cutting edge in the related field and all local loss control operations remain fully supported on a global level.
