CNA Makes Cargo Insurance More Accessible to Freight Forwarders

July 14, 2003

Chicago-based CNA insurance companies has integrated the cargo system of its marine operations with Fountainhead International LLC’s CargoWise® software solution to provide an integrated cargo insurance solution for freight forwarders and logistics providers.

The CargoWise® software solution addresses all major aspects of a forwarder’s operation – quoting, booking, routing, document generation, invoicing, vendor auditing, tracking and cargo insurance. The integration of CNA’s online cargo application system with CargoWise® allows forwarders to provide marine insurance quotes for ocean, air and inland shipping, generate insurance certificates, and handle insurance declarations for their customers seamlessly.

“This venture is a win-win for all involved. The CargoWise® software solution is intended to simplify the cargo insurance process for freight forwarders by providing seamless integration with the CNA cargo policy,” said Nigel Jenkins, global marine manager at CNA. “This not only can save time for the freight forwarder, but can bring more accurate insurance documentation and reduce the likelihood of having to re-work or duplicate any effort, and can result in improvement of service for the policyholder.”
