Brooks Insurance Agency Partners with The Hartford on Third-Party Logistics Warehouse Practice
Brooks Insurance Agency, the wholesale division of Venbrook Specialty Services, today announced a partnership with The Hartford to launch a Third-Party Logistics (3PL) Warehouse Practice. The practice is designed specifically for insurance brokers with warehouse accounts and those interested in soliciting this class of business.
Built from 60 years of industry experience, the new 3PL Warehouse Practice will assist brokers with designing the proper coverage forms for their clients including establishing property and legal loss limitation agreements, helping address the individual needs of clients’ customers, and offering direct access to the industry’s leading experts on warehouse legal liability issues. This strategic partnership offers companies warehouse and logistics coverage that can flex and expand depending on individual requirements.
“Brooks’ expertise coupled with The Hartford’s underwriting, coverage and risk engineering capabilities are a great match. We wanted to create an insurance practice that addressed all of the industry-specific issues 3PLs and warehouses face,” said David Rosen, Managing Director of Brooks. “We’re excited to help brokers mitigate the unique risks facing their industry and provide full coverage for companies. The Hartford was a natural fit for this initiative.”
The partnership addresses the distinct needs of the logistics industry by offering customized products that can provide coverage for the entire logistics spectrum. Coverage may include warehouse legal liability; buildings, contents and business interruption; motor truck cargo legal liability including contingent liability; expanded coverage for transportation brokers; comprehensive general liability; trucking; umbrella liability; worker’s compensation; and more.
“The logistics and warehouse industry is rapidly evolving with new technology and regulatory requirements,” said Sharon Primerano, chief underwriting officer for The Hartford’s marine practice. “Venbrook’s experience and expertise make them a natural partner to bring risk transfer solutions to the marketplace as we look to grow our business.”
