Subsidiary transport insurance

Federal War Transport Insurance is a subsidiary transport insurance, under which the Confederation offers special insurance cover in the interest of national supply if insurance companies suspend their cover for means of transport and goods/valuables in situations of extraordinary risk.

It is a practical instrument for ensuring a global and flexible use of the Swiss high sea fleet to meet the needs of national supply (as long as there is no equivalent alternative on the private insurance market).
