JERSEY CITY, N.J., March 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – CargoNet®, a leading source of information about supply chain risk, has received a 2011 Innovation Award from Business Insurance magazine. Verisk Analytics is a leading provider of information about risk to professionals in insurance, healthcare, mortgage, government, supply chain, and risk management. CargoNet is a division of Verisk’s ISO Crime Analytics unit.
“We are thrilled and honored to receive this award, but a great deal of the credit must go to the insurance companies that asked us to seek ways to combat cargo theft and who were willing to support our efforts from day one,” said David Shillingford, president of ISO Crime Analytics.
“The support for CargoNet from manufacturers, retailers, and logistics companies also allowed us to quickly demonstrate the power of a platform that allows insurers and their policyholders to quickly and securely share detailed theft information with law enforcement and to obtain new and unparalleled visibility for this growing supply chain risk,” said Maurizio Scrofani, president of the CargoNet division. “The selection of CargoNet for a 2011 Business Insurance Innovation Award reinforces that we are on the right track in mitigating supply chain risk across all industries.”
“Business Insurance is pleased to recognize innovation by companies and organizations providing services to risk managers.
