Joint Cargo Watch List

The Joint Cargo Committee reviews the Global Cargo Watch List (GCWL) at the start of its meetings. The list, compiled with input from Exclusive Analysis, represents those areas which offer an enhanced risk in terms of war and strikes coverage for goods in transit and/or storage and/or other static exposures. The current list, along with an archive of all GCWL amendments, can be accessed via the GCWL link at the bottom of the page.
