We will be performing a “trip” from Toronto to LA, and each type of risk we cover will be another piece of the puzzle.  Regardless of the order, with your guidance and suggestions we will eventually put all our pieces together, safely negotiating our way to delivery of both our cargo, and the information we impart.
