Over the past 30 years, AEI Transport has proudly grown to become one of the leading specialist insurance brokers along the east coast for heavy transport and logistics operators, advising in all aspects of insurance and workers compensation advice.
AEI is also pleased to announce the opening of its new office in Melbourne which commenced in March this year.
“This is an exciting step for AEI in allowing us to better service our existing clients along the eastern seaboard, especially in Victoria and Tasmania, as well as expand our footprint,” said director Noel Kelly.
Part of the ASX-listed Austbrokers Group, one of the largest insurance broking groups in Australia, AEI now operates seven offices across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria with a team of over 100 staff members.
“We remain committed to providing market leading insurance services, particularly in the area of claims management,” Kelly added.
“As the insurance market continues to evolve, we are committed to maintaining our professionalism and building long-term relationships with our clients.”
Kelly said insurance markets and changes to underwriting risk appetite has made it particularly challenging for transport operators in conjunction with the economic uncertainty of Covid-19.
“AEI’s continued focus on risk management and mitigation has a direct effect on the insurance companies and their appetite, and it is therefore critical that we continue to provide clear guidance to insurers of our client’s risk management practices, helping to reduce exposures and prevent losses, in turn maintaining reduced and stable premiums for operators.
“We look forward to meeting new businesses that we haven’t connected with yet.”
AEI managing director Tim Wedlock is another familiar face to the industry, and winner of the 2014 Don Watson Memorial Award for services to the trucking industry.
“Our philosophy is one of a team approach on all programmes whereby all resources of AEI Transport are available to our clientele,” said Wedlock, a director and president of the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) and recipient of the Qualified Practicing Insurance Broker of the Year award in 2004 and 2009.
“While you have the benefit of a dedicated account manager who can build up knowledge of your business, that person is also backed by the experience of our team that can deliver a complete range of broking services.
“We are passionate about our business, are very proud of what we have achieved for our clients and look forward to meeting you and demonstrating our credentials.”
