Wholesale and branch trade: solutions for companies of all sizes
Regardless of whether they are a small family-run company, a branch, an established retailer or an international wholesaler, and regardless of their business strategy and commercial success, all companies involved in trade are exposed to certain risks.
Trade is different from the service sector primarily when it comes to warehouse storage and transport. The increasing globalisation and the rapid development of online trade make these factors even more important: traders must provide an ever-growing range of goods as quickly and flexibly as possible. The consequences of this are, on the one hand, growing IT-controlled warehouses and logistics centres, and on the other, an increasingly complex network of import and export routes by sea, land and air. The insurance market responds to these dynamic developments with special cover concepts that are precisely tailored to the needs of companies working in trade. With a combination of industry knowledge and expertise in the international insurance market, Funk can offer trade companies of all sizes individual insurance solutions.
