• Deterioration of Stock (DOS) Insurance

    • Cover against damage to goods in cold storage
    • Perfect for owners, tenants, manufacturers, etc.
    • Complementary to existing Machinery Insurance

Product Overview

We understand the degree of risk involved in storing high-risk goods in cold storage for long periods of time. 

Damages to the machinery in these cold storage facilities can lead to serious financial losses, since in most such cases, it is a near-total loss of stock.

This is where our Deterioration of Stock (DOS) insurance can help out. We've designed it to protect you and your organisation against the deterioration of goods in cold storage due to a breakdown of the refrigerating machinery. 

The policy can be really helpful for everyone from owners and tenants of cold-storage houses to those involved food preservation, meat and fish processing, agricultural manufacturing, and chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

There are two different types of cold storages, namely cold storage under freezing conditions and cold storage under cooling conditions. These are further divided into different types. You can learn more about them and how we protect each type through our documentation or by reaching out to us.

Note: Deterioration of Stock Insurance is a complementary cover to Machinery Insurance and can only be taken out in connection with the latter.

You are covered for any kind of deterioration of stock that results from the following causes:

Extension

You can extend the Deterioration of Stock (D.O.S.) cover to include "deterioration due to the failure of the public power supply", provided the situation regarding public and back-up power supplies is found to be satisfactory.

    At the beginning of each month, you will need to declare the highest value of the stock that you were holding during the previous month.
