Roanoke Impact Insurance – The Q-Policy

Quality Impact Insurance – The Roanoke Q-Policy

Insuring the Invisible

    alt txt



    The Roanoke Q-Policy is a revolutionary insurance covering the quality impact on shipped wines.

    What is this type of insurance?

    Hidden claims that would not have been discovered until long after transport has ended can now be identified in real time.

    Too much exposure to inadequate temperature can lead to a change in taste and aroma. This may have impact not only on the wine quality but – as a consequence – also on your reputation and brand. In addition to the traditional all risk cargo insurance a quality impact policy provides comprehensive coverage for value reduction of your wines based on predefined loss parameters. 

    The loss parameters are measured by sensors moving with the cargo. They have been defined by extensive testing of multiple wine types by the Wine Institute of the University of Geisenheim located in the German wine region.

    What is the benefit?

    We want to keep quality the way it is supposed to be.
    Covering invisible damage and undiscovered losses.
    Bringing cargo insurance and supply chain visibility to the next level.
    Identifying the gap in the supply chain for non visible damages and offering individual solutions.

    We insure the quality of wine. This means that the wine tastes the way it is supposed to.

    We do this by means of a data and sensor based insurance solution that will identify the gap in the supply chain for non-visible damages. This is how we are different from traditional covers.

    We help prevent damage. In case of a loss, payments arrive quick and easy - ideally even before the shipment.
