About Us

CRC helps to resolve the complex legal and insurance issues which arise when a cargo fails, for whatever reason, to reach its original intended consignee.

CRC negotiates as an independent principal with the various interested parties in order to provide a commercially acceptable solution resulting in overall loss mitigation. In this process CRC may commit its own capital to purchase the cargo and to settle the outstanding claims of the various interested parties.

We operate from Switzerland, Singapore and the UK.

“Our extensive network of agents and buyers allows us to propose and execute commercial solutions on a global basis.”
