NTI hosts education event

Date: 27 February 2014

National Transport Insurance (NTI) has partnered with the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) to educate NSW insurance intermediaries on the challenges faced by transport operators.

The event, held at the DECA Driver Education Centre in Riverstone, gave insurance professionals the opportunity to drive a heavy vehicle and featured an address and tour of the ATA Safety Truck by ATA Chief Executive Officer, Stuart St Clair.

NTI General Manager, Sales & Distribution, Mike Edmonds, said the day reinforced NTI’s position as Australia’s leading heavy motor specialist.

“NTI understands the importance of sharing knowledge and helping insurance intermediaries to learn more about their transport clients and the industry,” Mr Edmonds said.

“All attendees certainly left with a greater understanding of the vital role transport operators play in Australia, as well as the challenges they face in sharing the roads.”

NTI also used the event to launch a range of enhancements to its products, developed in consultation with the transport industry.

“NTI has decided to take a leadership role on the issue of inexperienced drivers by introducing new driver acceptance criteria that align with the existing stepped license class system,” Mr Edmonds said.

“We view this as the responsible approach to creating genuine career pathways for inexperienced drivers.”

NTI’s new policy enhancements are applicable to all policies incepting from 1st March, 2014.
