Risk and opportunities
The increase in the movement of merchandise as a consequence of the remarkable growth of global trade in goods means that logistics companies are generating new business opportunities. The people in these organisations have to make decisions and, consequently, face risks and opportunities.
One of the changes taking place in the management of logistics companies is the adoption of risk management as a tool for identifying, analysing and evaluating risks.
Detection and analysis of risks in logistics companies
At MatErh we are specialists in the detection and analysis of risks in logistics companies. We help our customers to make decisions with calculated risks in order to transform the potential responsibilities arising from those risks into business opportunities.
We have our own methodology and extensive experience in the sector, which enables us to provide, among other services, 360° risk mapping, inspection visits and outsourcing of risk management. The purpose of these projects is clear: to facilitate our customers’ decision making and helping protect their organisations’ profits and assets (material, personal and reputational).
The MatErh team of professionals understand the value chain of the logistics sector, analysing the processes within it, assets that may be involved (warehouses, machinery, cranes, etc.), types of merchandise and means of transport.
Understanding a client’s business and their particular situations, we apply a risk identification process to analyse the causes and consequences of risks, evaluating the probability of the occurrence of potential impacts on the organisation. Finally, we make recommendations to the customer and prioritise them over time in order to minimise possible impacts.
Moreover, due to the way in which MatErh understands the entire risk management process, we provide insurance solutions for previously identified risks via our own insurance brokerage activity. In this field, we offer our knowledge of the insurance market, as well as the best alternatives from existing companies and products, according to each type of risk. In the event of a loss, we carry out management and monitoring with the aim of speeding up the process of collecting claims. We emphasise the importance in this sector of policies for material damage, civil liability, machinery breakdown, transport, shipping (mortgagee, innocent owner), P&I, vehicle fleet, D&O, cyber rRisk, life and accident).
In this way, we seek to offer our clients an integrated risk management service to protect their profits should the risks that they face materialse, and to protect their reputation.
