What does Known Loss mean?

In the context of shipping, a known loss is a term used to describe cargo that has been lost or damaged during transport and the loss or damage is already known before the shipment arrives at the destination. This could be due to various reasons such as damage to the cargo during loading or unloading, rough handling during transportation, or theft of the cargo.
