NTI is an Australian success story. From our humble beginnings over four decades ago, to the national company we are today, it’s been a long and interesting road to become the market leader in the heavy commercial motor insurance industry.
Our story starts in 1971 when we commenced trading as R&G Insurance Consultants – an independently owned general insurance brokerage providing coverage to carriers through local and international insurers. At this time and through to the 1980s we worked closely with Lloyd’s Brokers as their Australian representatives.
1986 was a turning point for us. National Transport Insurance Limited (NTI) was formed with local insurers AMP, Sun Alliance, General Accident and QBE as equal joint shareholders. This allowed us to expand greatly in the Australian market.
The insurance industry underwent many changes over the next few years, leading to 2001 when NTI became a joint venture between its shareholders. Those shareholders today are CGU and Vero, which combines the strength of two of Australia’s largest general insurers with NTI’s specialised knowledge of transport insurance.
In the more than 35 years we have been in business, NTI offices have opened across the country – from Sydney to Perth, from Townsville to Launceston.
In 2006, we took our next big step and launched our business operations in New Zealand. This expansion has strengthened our capabilities and has helped ensure we remain the leader in transport insurance.
At NTI we put our customers first. We realise that your business is unique and understand the challenges you face. We also know you need a flexible, value-for-money insurance solution that supports you well in times of need.
