  • POST-SHIPMENT RISK COVER: Coverage of export receivables from a Single Buyer / Country

    It is intended to protect multiple transactions with repayment terms not exceeding 12 months.

    Specifications and Conditions:

    - Coverage starts once goods are shipped till payment is collected on due date.
    - Coverage for political and commercial risks
