Transportation insurance from AXA covers the value of your goods against damage, loss, theft, accidents and other incidents.

Transportation insurance

Not every transportation route offers the same level of security, not every item in transit is equally sensitive to damage. That's why AXA offers tailored transportation insurance solutions that protect your goods optimally, from departure to arrival at the end-destination. Be on the safe side and don’t just rely on the limited liability of forwarding agents and carriers.
