More than insurance policies
We focus on your business, not just your policy. It means you can trust that your dedicated account manager will be on hand every step of the way. They will get to know your organisation and make recommendations to minimise the chances of incidents occurring.
And if something does go wrong, our experienced Claims team will guide you through the process, making it as painless as possible so you can focus on running your business.
A transparent approach
Typically, a broker’s commission earnings are based on a percentage of the premium. As such, this commission can often be a large figure regardless of the amount of work undertaken. But brokers do not tend to volunteer this information unless requested.
At One Broker, we take a more transparent approach. We typically work on an agreed-fee basis. This gives you a much clearer picture of your costs – plus, you save money because you won’t pay Insurance Premium Tax on fees!
Key Insurance Packages
We can arrange insurance for an array of businesses in the transportation sector. Whether you’re a fleet operator, owner operator or even a pallet network, we can help – don’t hesitate to make an enquiry if cover for your business type isn’t listed below.
Haulage Insurance can cover everything from HGVs to small vans, as well as all load types and distances travelled. It can also protect all types of warehousing, whether temporary or long-term.
Fleet, Goods in Transit, Premises, Contents and Liability Insurance are key policies, but we have solutions for warehoused goods, cyber risks and management liabilities that merit consideration for the total protection of your business activities.
Logistics Insurance is a general term used by the sector and can cover all aspects of a supply chain, including goods moved by road, sea, air or rail.
Your insurance responsibilities will be set out by either your own trading conditions, the contractual conditions you enter into with your customer and/or the legs of the journey you undertake or subcontract to different companies.
It is possible you may not physically move any goods yourself, instead acting as an agent who organises movement only – known as Freight Forwarding. This requires a specific type of cover, which we can arrange.
This is a broad term but typically refers to cover for goods being transported by road, sea or air (also known as Marine Cargo Insurance, Freight Insurance and Goods-in-Transit Insurance).
It is likely your customers will have specific requirements for the cover they require you to insure their goods for and this will be linked to the contractual basis they are moved under e.g. RHA or CMR terms. We can help you understand these terms and arrange appropriate protection.
Pallet Network Insurance
If you run a pallet network, your insurance needs can be complex.
Goods in Transit cover can be arranged on a group-wide basis with members contributing towards the cost of insurance in a range of ways.
You may also have drivers from different companies on your site(s) that introduce different risks.
Our experienced team has arranged cover for several UK networks and provides a high level of claims support when things go wrong.

My business has had a large number of claims. Can you help me get a Haulage Insurance quote?

Our team has implemented market-leading claims reporting processes. As such, your drivers should call us right after an incident, preferably while they’re still at the scene. We will ask them for details of the incident, drilling down into the forensic information insurers need to process the claim.
We will then work with you and the insurer to process the claim. By acting as an extension of your team, we can save you time while securing the best possible outcome.

Alongside standard policies, such as Fleet, Goods in Transit and Liability Insurance, we can add related covers to ensure you’re covered for all relevant risks. And if anything changes, simply drop us a line and we’ll update your policies.
