FORS reveals insurance tie-up to deliver member benefits

FORS reveals insurance tie-up to deliver member benefits

Direct Insurance Group (DIG) has teamed up with the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) to provide fleet operators with a ‘benefits-rich’ range of insurance packages, developed exclusively for members.

DIG, one of the UK’s leading independent commercial insurance brokers, describes FORS as the ‘ideal best practice management tool’ for operators.  

With FORS members able to demonstrate reductions in collisions, and with safety initiatives evident throughout their operations, FORS accredited companies present DIG with an attractive, low-risk proposition.  

In addition to taking advantage of dedicated and competitively-priced fleet insurance products from DIG, FORS  members can now enjoy a number of significant benefits; all of which designed by FORS and DIG to reduce road risk, save operating costs and progress through FORS accreditation.  

Following the announcement, FORS members taking up a new insurance contract with DIG can look forward to:
  • Subsidised FORS subscription and audit fees
  • Up to 10% savings on DIG policies
  • Free training to help meet FORS professional development
  • Free management reports to help meet FORS requirements on performance data and reporting
  • Free expert support and advice
  • Low claims rebates  
David Bearman, chief executive of DIG said: “Aligning ourselves with FORS is a demonstration of our recognition of the robustness of the FORS Standard, the independence of the audit and the steps that FORS members take to managing road risk across their fleets - our ultimate goal would be to see all our customers become FORS accredited.  

“By associating ourselves with FORS in this way further strengthens DIG’s belief that if we deliver products to protect our customers from the result of risk, we should also help them to manage that risk.”  

FORS director John Hix said: “This is a significant opportunity for FORS members. We have carefully devised a benefits-rich package for members and I would urge operators to look closely at the advantages that the FORS/DIG partnership can provide.  

“We are aware that operators function in a wide range of industries and DIG’s wide-ranging portfolio of tailored products will provide insurance policies for all.”
