North P&I Club launches tool to help track coronavirus
North P&I Club has announced the launch of a digital tool to help shipowners and operators track the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. North has developed its MyGlobalView platform so that it can now provide live updates on the number of confirmed cases of the virus, countries at risk, and what to look out for, the company said. The software sources its data from the World Health Organization (WHO) and other sources, and can assist ships with chartering and operations and help prepare staff for what to expect when arriving in port. “We are committed to ensuring that our shipowner members have easy access to up-to-date advice and guidance to operate safely,” said Simon McLeod, deputy director for loss prevention at North P&I Club. “So we take outbreaks like the coronavirus very seriously and have acted quickly to release this latest update to our MyGlobalView platform. As well as receiving information from the WHO, Johns Hopkins University and other organizations tracking the virus, we also have a huge network of contacts in ports across the world who are updating us with local information as the infection spreads. This means the software is as up-to-date and informative as possible.”

Marsh Joined Forces with AXA XL to Launch Marsh DeliveryPRO Insurance Solution

Marsh | June 08, 2020

Marsh announced the launch of Marsh deliveryPRO that enables businesses to meet the increased demand for same-day delivery of their products more efficiently. Marsh has collaborated with AXA XL and mobility data and analytics company Arity to create Marsh deliveryPRO. With deliveryPRO, Marsh clients can purchase a minimum of $500,000 in exclusive third-party bodily injury and property damage auto liability capacity from AXA XL. Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk advisor, today announced the launch of Marsh deliveryPRO, a customizable insurance solution that enables US businesses to meet the increased demand for same-day delivery of their products more efficiently. Many grocers, delivery network companies, retailers, restaurants, and other businesses are using individual drivers as employees or in a “gig” independent contractor capacity to meet the surge in demand for delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. In these cases, the drivers’ own vehicle is used. Current commercial auto liability insurance for such delivery can be difficult to secure and is often based on outdated models like prior year revenues, resulting in inefficient pricing. Read More:Insurtech Leaders Partner To Provide Independent Agents With Tailor-Made Business Solutions To address these issues, Marsh has collaborated with AXA XL and mobility data and analytics company Arity to create Marsh deliveryPRO, an innovative usage-based, price-by-mile insurance solution that allows businesses to pay only for the coverage they need. With deliveryPRO, Marsh clients can purchase a minimum of $500,000 in exclusive third party bodily injury and property damage auto liability capacity from AXA XL in excess of a minimum $500,000 self-insured retention for their hired and non-owned delivery exposures. Read More: FCA Probes 500 Insurance Policies In Test Case Preparation The policy acts as primary auto coverage when the driver is on an active delivery, as tracked by the deliveryPRO platform powered by Arity or other existing technology. Premiums are based on the number of miles driven for the delivery, allowing insurance costs to scale with a business’ growth. Pay-per-claim third-party claims administration services and claims consulting also are available. Many businesses have had to ramp up their existing delivery services or convert from in-person sales to on-demand deliveries overnight as a result of the global pandemic. Even when the crisis is over, last-mile delivery will likely continue to grow, With Marsh deliveryPRO, businesses can access usage-based insurance, pay only for what they need, and meet the surge in demand for delivery. - Robert Bauer, Head of Marsh’s US Sharing Economy and Mobility Practice. Chris Kopser, AXA XL President of Global Risk Management, said: “AXA XL is committed to providing tailored solutions that address emerging risks, particularly in the sharing economy and mobility space. Our relationship with technology innovators and strong distribution firms like Arity and Marsh respectively, empower us to help address the evolving needs of our clients.” Our expertise in mobility data analytics enables us to understand how someone behaves while behind the wheel, whether it’s for a delivery or personal use. This gives businesses greater control and the ability to work with and employ delivery drivers directly. Arity is proud to play a part in providing groundbreaking solutions that allow businesses to quickly adapt and effectively manage their insurance costs while giving individual drivers protection when making deliveries with their vehicles. - Gary Hallgren, President of Arity.
