Preventing Casualty Losses

  • Kenneth B. Ackerman


The warehouse operator insures against (and aims to reduce) three kinds of casualty risks that can affect his business in different ways.1 The first group of risks affect warehouse property. Losses here could destroy or render useless the building and land on which the warehousing operation is located. The second broad group of casualty risks affects contents and personal property—merchandise or other equipment stored in the building. And the third group of risks affects business operations, or the ability of the warehouse operation to continue in the face of a casualty loss of the building and/or its contents.
