FAQ - Potential Claims Scenarios

Scenario 1

An exporter, also a business owner and a seller, had a sales contract with his foreign buyer. The exporter managed to deliver the goods in good condition as per contract. Unfortunately, the buyer failed to make payment after the delivery. The exporter then used the policy to pursue the buyer and managed to recover the outstanding debt.
