Exporters rely on carrier insurance despite risk of losses

18.07.2018, Company:

According to Czech Statistical Office data, Czech exports grew by 6% between 2016 and 2017. Despite the fact that the average value of the exported goods also attacks the 290 billion crowns in the first five months of 2018, exporters rely on the fact that the goods are sufficiently insured through carrier insurance. In many cases, however, this insurance does not provide a sufficient cover. This applies in particular to international haulage of high-value smaller goods, such as electronics.

Weston Stacey: A lot of people in America have underestimated Trump

12.03.2018, Amcham

An article of E15 published on March 12 on steel and aluminum tarrifs (in Czech language).

If the tariffs take effect, the EU has declared it will place reciprocal tariffs on US products of similar export value.
