What makes FR8 different?


The RHA and Griffiths & Armour Insurance brokers came together last year to bring you FR8. One year on, here are some answers to some common questions we get asked.

So what makes FR8 different to any other insurance cover you can find on the market?

A common objective for RHA members who turn to FR8 Insurance is to reduce their risk and the number of accidents as well as their insurance premiums by adopting a good quality risk management programme.

Paul Trafford from Griffiths & Armour explains; “we spent many months researching and consulting the Haulage Industry to find out what their views of the competitiveness and support available through the insurance market was like. It was clear that a desire for a more proactive approach existed, one that better rewarded those with excellent working practices and low levels of accidents” He added, “FR8 is more than just insurance. It’s a proactive and preventative approach that focuses not only on providing high quality and competitive insurance products and services to RHA members, but also provides guidance and practical online and tailored support to help run a safer working environment and minimise insurance premium costs”.

It’s this unique approach that underpins a commonly held view that more often than not, good quality risk management practices lead to fewer incidents and claims and avoids incurring potential costs because of a breakdown in business continuity.

Inclusive legal services sets FR8 apart from other insurers

FR8 haulage insurance policy holders will receive inclusive legal advice provided by RHA Legal Services, ensuring the right level of support and guidance is available every step of the way. This legal service is inclusive and sets FR8 Insurance apart from other insurers.
