Understanding Force Majeure During COVID-19
Su Ross will be speaking via webinar on "Understanding Force Majeure During COVID-19," on Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT). This webinar will be hosted by the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA).
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis has affected all aspects of business in the US and throughout the world. Due to COVID-19, force majeure is now frequently being used as a reason for nonperformance of a contract. Avalon Risk Management's Keith Sanchez and Su Ross from MSK will provide answers to timely questions such as:
- What exactly is force majeure? When and how is it invoked?
- How is force majeure different for carriers, importers/exporters and service providers?
- What are the consequences of invoking force majeure?
The webinar will review what is covered by cargo and liability insurance. It will also address what happens if cargo is damaged, delayed, diverted, stranded or undeliverable. It will conclude with Best Practices that should be in place for all parties involved in a shipping transaction.
