empty warehouse


Wholesalers 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.
