    5. 5. Markings – Hazardous Materials / Dangerous Goods<br />adopted by all International Maritime Organization<br />(IMO) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) member countries to smooth the flow of these types of materials in waterborne and air commerce.<br />

Most manufacturers and shippers insure cargo for CIF VALUE plus 10%.On international shipments the terms of the Irrevocable Letter of Credit (LOC) may dictate insured value. It is advisable to insure international cargo at CIF plus 10 and the cost of freight.<br />
