Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI) has launched a new marine, transport and logistics liability insurance in Australia and New Zealand.
The company is providing the new marine, transport and logistics liability insurance to port/terminal operators, transport/logistics operators, rail operators, stevedoring operators and ship repairers.
In addition, the new insurance is designed to meet the needs of a charterer’s liability and warehouseman’s liability.
The firm has also appointed Barton Phillips as head of transport and logistics, and Laetitia Roney as manager of transport and logistics liability insurance. Both will work from BHSI’s new office in Brisbane.
BHSI Australia marine head Dimitry Zilberud said: "With the appointment of these two exceptionally experienced marine insurance professionals, we further deepen our underwriting expertise and expand our geographic footprint in Australia and New Zealand.
"Our new marine, transport & logistics liability capabilities enhance our already formidable inventory of marine lines and enable customers and brokers to secure comprehensive, multi-line solutions with the financial strength of BHSI."
Recently, BHSI launched marine cargo (ocean and inland), cargo stock throughput (STP), carrier goods in transit, carriers liability and marine project cargo coverages in Australia and New Zealand.
The firm also offers property, casualty, executive & professional and healthcare insurance services in Australia, as well as property, casualty and financial lines in New Zealand.
