Partners& is proud to sponsor the Motor Transport Awards 2021

Partners& is proud to be one of the sponsors of this year’s Motor Transport Awards. As one of the premier events in the haulage industry calendar, it is also the ideal forum to launch its haulage and logistics proposition.

At a time when client service levels are diminishing and the need for people to understand the details of the insurance they have is increasing, Partners& aims to challenge the status quo and provide a holistic, advice led service that moves away from the transactional, price led approach used by many brokers in the industry.

The team, led by recognised industry professionals John Marks, Adrian Deakins and Dawn Widdowson, bring a combined 50 years’ experience to the team. They believe in taking a wider angle view – analysing the clients’ full business, assessing the market context and what’s happening in the industry to get a true picture of the risks their business faces today, including industry specific issues such as driver welfare and wellbeing and telematics. Only then can they provide relevant and meaningful risk protection advice.

We see ourselves as risk protection advisers, looking at a business in context, so that we can diagnose the current and future risks, not just repeat last year’s programme. Do you know a business that has stood still for a year? We don’t, which is why we invest the time to get to know our clients, really investigate their business, so we can provide them with the right advice for their business in today’s world. The underwriters appreciate it, and it’s something our clients appreciate too. We are thrilled to be part of the Motor Transport Awards this year. It’s a testament to the value that Partners& places in this industry sector. After all the sector has been through, it will be great to come together and celebrate the people who have kept the supply chain of the nation going.
John Marks
Partnership is at the heart of our business, it’s what we believe in, so promoting this level of collaboration in the industry through the partnership award made complete sense. We are a people business, and we work together with our clients, our insurers, and our ecosystem partners to find the right solutions for our clients.
