Direct Insurance Group has teamed up with FORS to provide fleet operators with a ‘benefits-rich’ range of insurance packages.
Following the announcement, FORS members taking up a new insurance contract with DIG can look forward to:
- Subsidised FORS subscription and audit fees
- Up to 10% savings on DIG policies
- Free training to help meet FORS professional development
- Free management reports to help meet FORS requirements on performance data and reporting
- Free expert support and advice
- Low claims rebates
David Bearman, chief executive of DIG said: “Aligning ourselves with FORS is a demonstration of our recognition of the robustness of the FORS Standard, the independence of the audit and the steps that FORS members take to managing road risk across their fleets - our ultimate goal would be to see all our customers become FORS accredited. By associating ourselves with FORS in this way further strengthens DIG’s belief that if we deliver products to protect our customers from the result of risk, we should also help them to manage that risk. We’re excited to see the launch of this new partnership and look forward to helping FORS members protect their fleet, and providing support with the essential ongoing training and requirements of the FORS Standard”.
“This is a significant opportunity for FORS members,” said FORS Director, John Hix.
“We have carefully devised a benefits-rich package for members and I would urge operators to look closely at the advantages that the FORS / DIG partnership can provide.
“We are aware that operators function in a wide range of industries,” said Hix, “and DIG’s wide-ranging portfolio of tailored products will provide insurance policies for all; hauliers, of course, but also bespoke plans for those specialising in recycling, waste, Haz. Chem., liquids and a great many other sector-specific operations.”
