For special cargo insurance requirements beyond the ordinary transit cover.

Stock throughput
Customers who import, store and redistribute cargo can benefit from an extended insurance protection for goods from origin all the way to final destination under a seamless cover.

Contingency risks
Every importer or exporter is exposed to the risk of their trading partner not fulfilling responsibilities under an agreed contract of sale. AXA customers may be vulnerable in their capacity as a buyer or seller.

Exhibition risks
Customers displaying goods at trade fairs, shows or exhibitions can extend their insurance to cover transit to and from the exhibition sites and whilst on exhibition, including cover for stands, fixtures and fittings owned by the customer, unpacking, assembly, dismantling and repacking.

War on land
The Institute War Clause offers coverage for war risks only whilst cargo is sea-borne or air-borne. War on land extension is an option to cover war risks whilst the cargo is moved overland. This is especially significant for movements to war-zones and can be applied for on a case by case basis.

Project cargo
Delay in Start Up (DSU) - for customers starting new projects.
Business plans can be disrupted when critical items do not arrive on time. Holdups will bring about delay in completion of a project and consequently a loss of anticipated profits.
DSU is the solution that can protect profits if such critical items are lost or damaged in transit. This cover is offered in conjunction with marine insurance for the movement of the project cargo.
