AXA XL teams up with Contguard to launch Connected Cargo in France
Paris, France - April 11, 2019
AXA XL Risk Consulting, in partnership with Contguard, today announced the launch of “Connected Cargo”, a real-time digital cargo tracking solution designed to help French companies optimise their supply chain.
Contguard specialises in Big Data and uses Artificial Intelligence to develop applications and services for companies that need to secure their goods in transit. The company uses data from sensors placed on containers, such as geolocation, temperature and humidity fluctuations, door opening or shock.
Through this partnership, clients will benefit from 24/7 monitoring and the expertise of AXA XL’s risk engineers in order to implement prevention plans.
Maxime Ambourg, Director, Offer & Innovation at AXA Matrix*, now part of AXA XL, comments: “Connected Cargo brings together some of the best tracking and datamining technologies and the experience of our specialised risk engineers.
Working with Contguard allows us to augment our consultants’ expertise and to provide more precise and impactful prevention services for the risks associated with transportation and logistics.”
AXA Venture Partners, AXA’s venture capital fund dedicated to technology, invested in Contguard in 2018.
Sébastien Loubry, Partner, Global Head of Business Development at AXA Venture Partners, explains: “We are delighted that Contguard, one of our investments, established a partnership with AXA XL. We are convinced that the technology they developed, which brings a real difference to that market, will provide a lot of value to their clients.”
