WholesalersWholesalers move mountains of goods every day to keep the economy moving—the medical, dental and hospital equipment vital to the health of every citizen; plumbing and heating equipment needed in every development under construction; and the books, clothing, electronics, furniture and nursery products that enhance our lives.
But what happens when weather takes the roof off the warehouse or a trailer-load of goods goes off the road? Or when employees are sidelined by injury or illness? That flow of products, if disrupted, can impact the bottom line.
At Hanover Risk Solutions, we’ve considered how to mitigate the risk of just such a list of catastrophes.
Keeping things moving is the name of the game for wholesalers, and we can help.
A long list of incidents and accidents can keep the goods you wholesale from becoming the goods others sell at retail. We’ve considered those risks and have some tips to help you lessen the chances of such an interruption in the chain of commerce.
