Risk management

We offer a range of risk management services to our clients, from risk engineering and business interruption reviews to strategic risk assessments and enterprise risk management. We develop bespoke risk management products that are tailored to meet the requirements of transportation companies but more importantly, produce output that provides real benefit and value.

We recognize that loss management is a critical area for transportation clients. We employ dedicated loss management executives who organize the appropriate solution for each of our clients. This could be devising the most effective way of direct dealing with insurers, the appointment of an external claims handling firm or managing losses in-house.

We offer a range of additional services from claims audit to helping clients defend a claim. In the event of a large or more complex loss, we will deploy senior claims executives to personally manage the claim to conclusion.
