Wright Insurance Brokers saw a record turnout at the company’s annual Haulage Insurance Seminar which was held in Wexford over the weekend. The seminar coincided with the Irish Road Haulage Association Conference, also sponsored by Wright Insurance Brokers, and was attended by over 350 operators from the Transport sector. The company has a record of not shying away from discussing challenges and highlighting the key insurance issues facing the industry, taking the view that forewarned is forearmed. The recent 2017 seminar content continued in this open style and tackled a number of contentious issues facing the sector.
Topics such as damage to loads by clandestines, vehicle security and contract conditions were addressed by solicitor Damian McGeady, while international fraud expert, David Snow, flagged some very interesting examples of fraud indicators that we should all be mindful of. Jim Power, Ireland’s leading economist and contributor to national news programmes and newspapers, shared his views on Brexit and its potential effects on the Transport Industry in the coming years. These thought provoking seminar topics certainly struck a chord with many seminar attendees and a lively question and answer session ensured.
