What do you need to know about Transport and Logistics Insurance?
The range of primary risks for which any particular operator has will vary significantly depending on the nature and scale of your business. It depends on your business activities, whether you’re carrying dangerous goods or not, if you’re transporting customer’s goods, and a range of other variables. Optimising insurance cover is a skill involving an understanding of the transport and logistics industry and knowledge of the risk environment in which it operates.
At GSK Insurance Brokers, our team of brokers include experts in motor transport and logistics, with decades of experience handling the often complex assessment of risk to provide optimal protection. With access to Australian and world insurance markets, we’re able to offer cover at a competitive price.
